January 11 (Renewables Now) - German renewables developer Enerparc AG and French hydrogen producer Lhyfe have agreed a partnership to produce up to 1,200 kg of hydrogen per day from solar power in the state of Brandenburg.

As part of the cooperation, Lhyfe is building a 5-MW electrolyser in the city of Luckau, Brandenburg, which will be powered with electricity from a 20-MW solar plant owned by the German partner, Enerparc said on Monday.

Production is scheduled to start in late 2023 and the green fuel will be then supplied to the industry, transport companies, filling stations and municipalities in the region.

"The targeted development of local hydrogen ecosystems is a decisive milestone for the climate neutrality of numerous municipalities. Climate protection begins at the local and regional level. Strategic partnerships like the one with Enerparc are important in order to be able to precisely set up these projects across the board," said Luc Grare, Head of International Business at Lhyfe.

The partnership with Enerparc marks another step in Lhyfe's expansion on the German market. In December, the French company agreed to supply about 30 tonnes of green hydrogen to German railway operator Deutsche Bahn AG from 2024 onward. For this purpose, Lhyfe will install an electrolyser in the city of Tuebingen, southwest Germany, which will produce the carbon-free fuel locally.
