The Wuppertal municipal utility is considered a pioneer in the holistic approach of using hydrogen in mobility. With its own hydrogen production at the waste-to-energy plant, economic optimization of production times and use in local public transport, the project is a good example of sector coupling. A stringent continuation of the strategy speaks in favor of decentralized generation of hydrogen. The sustainability of this approach may need to be validated.
