Hydrogen from water electrolysis can be stored within the natural gas grid and provide a large energy storage capacity. Due to the specific combustion properties of hydrogen, however, engines and CHP fueled with natural gas are subject to investigations on the effects of hydrogen addition on their operating behavior.

Latest findings from the Kopernikus P2X project show that based on a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) the global warming potential of green hydrogen depends mainly on the generation technologies available for the electricity production.
