New TOTAL hydrogen filling station in Germany unites mobility and renewable energy


A new hydrogen (H2) filling station in Karlsruhe, Germany, adds further impetus to the building of an infrastructure for eco-friendly electric mobility using H2 and fuel cell technology.

The TOTAL filling station on Karlsruhe’s Südtangente ring-road was commissioned on Wednesday in the presence of Norbert Barthle, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. The Ministry supported the construction of the H2 facility with around €970,000 ($1,154,620) under its National Innovation Program for H2 and Fuel Cell Technology (NIP).

This H2 filling station – the eleventh in the TOTAL network and the tenth in the German federal state of Baden-Württemberg – is distinguished by an innovative energy concept: H2 is produced on-site through electrolysis, using the electricity generated by a solar array. This is one example for how renewable energy can be used in transport.
