Lhyfe announces its first hydrogen production projects based on renewables in Denmark

The French company, Lhyfe is joining the Danish cleantech cluster with the announcement of projects with GreenLab Skive.
By 2022, 24 MW electrolysers based on renewable power input will be installed in Skive. Further, Lhyfe is also part of the GreenHyScale consortium that has just been grated 30 million euros to establish at least a 100 MW green hydrogen production plant by 2024. The plant will generate 30 tonnes of renewable hydrogen a day.

"Lhyfe’s motto is to make greener and cheaper hydrogen. The GreenLab project is a large-scale demonstration to everyone that it is feasible today not tomorrow. Lhyfe is glad to share its know-how and be a part of this world-class project. We are extremely proud to be part of the GreenHyScale consortium and to be working together to deliver a renewable hydrogen production plant of such a scale."

There are a lot of Power-to-X projects being developed and considered in Denmark right now, due to our availability of low cost green power (offshore wind) and closeness to the future huge German market for imported green hydrogen. In Denmark we will potentially have more than three times the wind power resources we need ourselves by 2040, when we don’t use fossil fuels anymore.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Demark, Jeppe Kofod is excited about this development in Denmark and states:

"We are very pleased to see our Power-to-X landscape develop. This is of strategic importance to us, and very much in support of our ambitious climate and sustainable energy goals. Foreign investors benefit from an enabling Danish context as well as strong research and business competences, and we benefit from large scale investments to drive the green development further and keep costs down. It is not an easy task as also witnessed by the many members of the GreenHyScale consortium, but collaboration is something we do well in Denmark, so I am most pleased to see this come to fruition here."
Jeppe Kofod Minister of Foreign Affairs of Denmark
The other partners of the project are: GreenLab A/S, Green Hydrogen Systems A/S, Energy Cluster Denmark, Everfuel, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, Equinor Energy A/S, Technical University of Denmark, Imperial College London, Quantafuel and Euroquality.

Get to know Lhyfe

Founded in 2017 in Nantes, Lhyfe produces and supplies green and renewable hydrogen for use in the transport sector and industry. Its production sites make it possible to supply renewable hydrogen in industrial quantities and to deploy a virtuous energy model geared towards environmental friendliness. Lhyfe, which will soon have around 50 employees, is a member of France Hydrogène and Hydrogen Europe. The company raised 20 million euros in funding between 2019 and 2020 and laid the foundation stone of its first industrial green hydrogen production site in September 2020.

Support From Invest in Denmark

Invest in Denmark has been in dialogue with Lhyfe for the past year in order to show-case the opportunities for Power-to-X in Denmark. The provided services have included introducing Lhyfe to GreenLab Skive and other relevant industrial partners and academia as well as setting up meetings between relevant parties.
