The idea for the H2UB was developed in the Open Grid Europe innovation team around Ralf Werner, Nils Liesebach and Achmed Junusov as part of an analysis of the hydrogen market. In a time of upheaval and a critical point of market ramp-up, innovative impulses and the agile momentum of a broad and dynamic start-up scene were missing.

The concept of the H2UB was developed to fill this gap and also to promote the networking of the various market players towards continuous, step-by-step cross-regional hydrogen value chains or ecosystems. This was followed by a preliminary study, funded by the state of NRW, in which the concept was refined and validated. This was successfully completed and is the foundation for the establishment of the H2UB.
