Economically viable and innovative perspectives for a transformation of the energy supply of local public transport as well as other stakeholders towards a sustainable energy supply with consideration of hydrogen as a building block of energy supply in the region around the city of Mühlhausen are to be developed. An essential component should be the existing companies and structures that already produce biogas today and can contribute to hydrogen supply in the future. The application of different innovative technologies of biomass utilization and hydrogen production from biogas will be examined concretely for biogas plant locations around Mühlhausen and the resulting economic perspectives for the further use of hydrogen by the public transport of the city of Mühlhausen, the region and other regionally located companies will be shown. The aim is to investigate the transformation to a hydrogen economy using the example of the Mühlhausen region, to show Thuringian agricultural companies new perspectives for marketing the products from the biogas plant, to ensure the sale of hydrogen by third parties, to support public transport in its transformation to sustainable locomotion, to open up local markets and to strengthen the economy in the Mühlhausen region.
