Brief pro­file

Thü­ga Aktienge­sellschaft, based in Munich, is an invest­ment and con­sult­ing com­pa­ny with local roots. As a minor­i­ty share­hold­er of around 100 ener­gy and water util­i­ties, it sup­ports their entre­pre­neur­ial devel­op­ment with tech­ni­cal know-how and advice. Togeth­er with its part­ners, Thü­ga forms the largest munic­i­pal asso­ci­a­tion of local and region­al ener­gy and water com­pa­nies in Ger­many — the Thü­ga Group. In total, the Thü­ga part­ners sup­ply over four mil­lion cus­tomers nation­wide with elec­tric­i­ty, two mil­lion cus­tomers with nat­ur­al gas and one mil­lion cus­tomers with drink­ing water. Their com­mon goal is to shape the future of munic­i­pal ener­gy and water supply.

Activ­i­ties in the real-world laboratory

In the “West Coast 100” project, Thü­ga, Thü­ga Erneuer­bare Energien and the part­ner com­pa­ny Stadtwerke Hei­de are test­ing under real con­di­tions to what extent hydro­gen addi­tion to the exist­ing gas net­work is fea­si­ble for the oper­a­tion of heat­ing sys­tems. For this pur­pose, up to 20 per­cent by vol­ume hydro­gen is to be added in a net­work sec­tion with more than 200 end cus­tomers. The results will then be made avail­able to the Thü­ga Group with its almost 100 munic­i­pal com­pa­nies. On their way to decar­bonized gas net­works, the Thü­ga part­ners can thus build on the results and expe­ri­ence gained in the real-world laboratory. 

Long-term vision

More speed in cli­mate pro­tec­tion! More than 60 munic­i­pal and region­al ener­gy sup­pli­ers from the Thü­ga Group are call­ing for the rapid mar­ket launch of green hydro­gen & Co. They are also cam­paign­ing for a manda­to­ry quo­ta for renew­able gas­es: 25 per­cent by 2030 in sec­tors whose CO2 emis­sions can­not be off­set through EU emis­sions trad­ing. Togeth­er with fur­ther mea­sures from a five-point plan pub­lished in 2019, this will allow green­house gas emis­sions to be reduced effec­tive­ly and cost-effec­tive­ly, espe­cial­ly in the build­ing and trans­port sectors. 

The ener­gy turn­around can only suc­ceed if the exist­ing gas net­work is used for decar­bonised gas­es. The tech­ni­cal solu­tions are already avail­able to pro­vide hydro­gen for indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion or for heat­ing. The next step is now the imple­men­ta­tion on an indus­tri­al scale — the test run in the real lab­o­ra­to­ry makes an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion. The long-term goal is 100 % hydro­gen in the gas net­work. The gas net­works must be pre­pared for this trans­for­ma­tion and the appli­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies for high­er or fluc­tu­at­ing hydro­gen con­tents must be advanced.
