Hydrogen for Bremen’s industrial transformation

Show project description Hide project description

Green hydrogen exerts a central function as an energy carrier and raw material for industrial processes in the holistic energy transition.

The hyBit project investigates for the region Bremen, how climate neutrality can be achieved through the targeted technical, economic, ecological, legal and social design of hydrogen hubs.

In the Mobility and Logistics cluster, sector-specific questions are being researched. In five steps, pilot applications are defined via flexible modeling of logistics systems that run on hydrogen. For this purpose, transformation paths, infrastructure concepts and roadmaps will be developed and simulated. The results will be made available to a central transformation platform, which will combine them with the results of other issues in addition to mobility and logistics.

As a result, an initial impulse for the development of a sustainable hydrogen economy in the Bremen area is expected.

NebulOuS will introduce an appropriate meta-operating system that encompasses brokerage capabilities across the cloud computing continuum. Specifically, it will enable the emergence of ad-hoc fog brokerage ecosystems that exploit IoT/edge and fog nodes, in parallel to multi-cloud resources to cope with the requirements of hyper distributed applications. Such applications will be managed by NebulOuS considering the full life-cycle support of edge and cloud resources to enable hosting nodes across organisational units of the same or different business entities or reach private datacentres of telecom providers, constituting ad-hoc cloud computing continuums. BIBA will integrate the research on distributed digital twins and their orchestration in the cloud computing continuum and employ the NebulOuS solution in an application scenario in the domain of crisis management and communication.

Potential analysis of a multimodal transshipment system for the direct or indirect transshipment of goods between an inland waterway and at least one other freight transport system

Freight transport in Germany today is mainly carried out by road and rail. However, the further increase in transport volumes is pushing the systems to their limits, as evidenced by increased congestion and more frequent delivery delays, among other things. Another challenge is the high environmental impact of road and rail transport. A lower-emission alternative and supplement to land-based transport is water-based freight transport by inland waterway vessel. The increased use of this mode of transportation requires the provision of additional decentralized transhipment points (so-called MicroPorts) for the intelligent and efficient linking of land- and water-based freight transport.

The aim of the project is the technical design of a network of decentralized transhipment hubs for linking land- and waterborne freight transport. The basic idea is to use existing infrastructure, especially bridges, for the installation of the MicroPorts. Based on this, a simulation-based evaluation will be carried out to assess the new transhipment concept's economic efficiency and sustainability. The expected project results thus provide the basis for the planning and implementation of decentralized transhipment points for combined land- and water-based freight transport in the future.

The aim of the project is to develop an off-the-shelf system for the most intuitive access possible to complex information through natural and low-threshold communication in combination with optical image recognition processes. At the same time, it shall provide experienced users with direct, fast and contactless access to a wide range of functions. For data protection reasons, personal image and voice data will be processed by an integrated computing unit.
