Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and Uniper to develop a hydrogen pipeline from Denmark to Germany

Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), through its Energy Transition Fund, and Uniper have signed a memorandum of understanding to strengthen collaboration on bringing green hydrogen from CIP’s HØST PtX Esbjerg project to Germany. 

The partnership between CIP and Uniper, a global energy merchant and one of the world’s largest power producers, will drive collaboration on the production, transport, and marketing of green hydrogen from the HØST PtX Esbjerg project, located on the Danish Westcoast, to Germany.

It is expected that HØST as ultimo 2028, will be connected to the German hydrogen backbone via a new hydrogen pipeline to be developed from Denmark to Germany by the Danish transmission system operator Energinet in cooperation with Gasunie Deutschland Transport Services. This will enable access to the consumption sites in Germany and help bring competitively priced green hydrogen to the German market.

In partnership, CIP and Uniper will deliver up to 140,000 tons of green hydrogen annually to customers in Germany. Uniper intends to take green hydrogen from HØST into its green gas portfolio and supply the industry’s needs with varying flexibility profiles and with different contract lengths.

We see great potential in this collaboration. HØST fits our strategic target of achieving at least 1 GW installed electrolyser capacity by 2030 and our other electrolyser developments in Germany such as Green Wilhelmshaven. Uniper’s diversified hydrogen portfolio consists of various supply sources to guarantee competitive and secure supplies in line with customer needs.

Holger Kreetz, COO Uniper
This is an important step for CIP and the HØST PtX Esbjerg project. With the vast renewable energy potential from the North Sea as well as the planned hydrogen pipeline connecting Denmark to Germany, we are excited to take the next step in bringing the green hydrogen from the HØST project to German customers. While CIP has a significant portfolio of power-to-gas projects, Uniper’s strong position with German energy customers is a key enabler in establishing this new market.
