Development concept for energy storage in Lower Saxony until 2030


As part of the preparation of the 'Development concept for energy storage in Lower Saxony', technologies were investigated that have the potential to store energy both mechanically and chemically on a grid scale. Included among these, is hydrogen storage. Activities included within the framework of the development concept were presentations of the principles of operation, analysis of potential, and feasibility studies. Based on the assessments of their potentials and the feasibility studies, the technologies were prioritized and compared in terms of their cost-effectiveness.
