    Green hydrogen production is slowly picking up speed. The first projects are already producing the coveted gas from wind power. In contrast, the use of wind energy for heating is still weakening.
    Three blades, one tower and ever more efficiency through size growth - that is the successful model of wind technology. But the principle has limits: Larger turbines are harder to transport, and suitable areas without resident conflicts are becoming scarce. Are there alternatives?

    Very few new turbines had been built off the German coast by mid-2020. However, the German government has increased the expansion targets for 2030 and 2040. The production of green hydrogen could provide a further boost for the industry.

    Wind turbines can be dismantled without problems. Individual and system components can then be resold or reused. Recycling the machines, which are mainly made of steel and concrete, also presents no problems.
