    No car manufacturer can avoid electromobility. After long start-up difficulties, everyone has made this a priority. In order to achieve the climate protection goals (see the occasion today) and not least because China, the important car sales market, is demanding more electrical outlets. Batteries are needed for e-cars. However, their production is currently still dominated by Asian companies that do not necessarily build cars. In view of the rapidly growing e-fleets, some car manufacturers want to take this into their own hands

    At the same time the demand for green hydrogen will skyrocket in the next few years. This requires a lot of green electricity, for example from wind turbines. But the expansion of onshore wind farms is only progressing slowly. And at the same time, functional wind turbines are even being demolished.

    Where will the electricity come from to switch to green hydrogen?
