- Hydrogen production solely from renewable energy
- Exclusive hydrogen source for northern Bavaria and the border region in Czech Republic
- Cross-sector use of renewable energy as a model for the future
Siemens Smart Infrastructure and WUN H2 GmbH
signed a contract to build one of the largest hydrogen production plants in
Germany. It will be built in Wunsiedel in the north of Bavaria. With a power
intake of six megawatts in the initial development phase, the plant will run
solely on renewable energy and will be CO2-free. The electrolysis
plant from Siemens Energy will have the capacity to produce over 900 tons of
hydrogen per year in this first phase. When fully expanded, it will be able to
supply up to 2,000 tons. Groundbreaking is scheduled for the end of this year
and commissioning at the end of 2021.
- Enlighted Safe app helps track and trace employees who may have come in contact with an infected individual

- System based on Siemens Spectrum Power supports second-by-second control of all assets and integration of RWE wind and solar farms
- Improved combination of electricity generation from renewables and conventional fuel is a major milestone for the energy transition
RWE is making its power station control system fit for the future by adopting a new technology. Optime, a new SCADA system based on Siemens Spectrum Power, gives RWE a uniform control technology. SCADA stands for 'Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition' – in other words monitoring and managing technical processes using a computer system. Previously, there were two separate systems: one for power plants in Germany and another for the Netherlands and Belgium. The new solution combines the two, while integrating RWE’s renewable energy assets in Europe. It can also accommodate additional units such as battery storage systems and diesel-powered backup generators.
