spin-off and public listing last Monday, September 28, 2020, Siemens Energy is
no longer part of the Siemens Group. Siemens AG is the largest shareholder of
Siemens Energy AG. Siemens Mobility GmbH, which belongs to Siemens AG, and
Siemens Energy AG have signed a research cooperation agreement to continue and
further expand their joint efforts in the promotion of hydrogen mobility.
“The decarbonization of energy systems is a central goal of Siemens Energy. So-called sector coupling plays a key role here – interconnecting previously separate energy-relevant sectors such as electricity and heat generation or mobility. This can be achieved – completely CO2-free – with the electrolysis of water using electricity produced from renewable energy sources,” says Armin Schnettler, EVP New Energy Business at Siemens Energy. “Working together with Siemens Mobility, we want to drive sector coupling by developing, among other things, an electrolysis and fueling solution for the fast fueling of hydrogen-powered trains.”
“Our cooperation with Siemens Energy paves the way for sustainable and climate-friendly mobility. This way, we can support our customers in replacing their diesel-powered trains operating on non-electrified rail lines with emission-free hydrogen-powered trains over the longer term. Together with Siemens Energy, we can even offer hydrogen as a ‘hydrogen as a service’ model for a train’s service life,” says Albrecht Neumann of Siemens Mobility.
