HyStarter II: Region of Rheinhessen-Nahe

About the region

The Rheinhessen-Nahe region is made up of the districts of Bad Kreuznach, Mainz-Bingen and Alzey-Worms. An area of 2,058 km2 is home to 482,872 inhabitants. The three districts comprise a total of seven independent towns and 22 municipalities. Nestled between the Rhine, Hunsrück, Taunus highlands and Donnersberg, the rural Rheinhessen-Nahe region lies between the Rhine-Main and Rhine-Neckar metropolitan regions and as a gateway region between Luxembourg/Trier and Frankfurt am Main. As early as May 2021, a cooperation agreement was signed between the three districts for a joint approach to the development of a hydrogen strategy. Against the backdrop of the expansion of climate protection efforts, the dominant question is to what extent the introduction of hydrogen can serve to achieve further greenhouse gas savings.
