Hydrogen ecosystem with Bosch technologies

Our focus is clear — achieving the climate objectives

Considering the continuous increase in global energy demand, Bosch is seeking to contribute to the decarbonization of energy supply by offering hydrogen solutions. Our strategy is based on openness to technology in addressing the climate objectives. In this process, establishing hydrogen — produced from renewable energy sources — as the fuel for a carbon-neutral energy future is an essential component.

Hydrogen economy at a glance

Hydrogen value chain in icons: from production to storage and distribution to usage of hydrogen


The Bosch PEM electrolyzer stack produces hydrogen from water and electricity. In addition, Bosch develops water treatment plants. Water treatment is the first and most fundamental link along the hydrogen value chain, because the generation of hydrogen requires one thing above all: ultra-pure water.

Storage and distribution

Following electrolysis, hydrogen is compressed so that it can be easily stored for use in further processes. To be able to refuel vehicles quickly and smoothly with hydrogen, it must be compressed up to 900 bar. Compressors with efficient and low-maintenance drives from Bosch Rexroth play an essential role in building a hydrogen infrastructure.


Hydrogen is used in energy-intensive industrial processes that are difficult to decarbonize, directly in mobility applications, such as mobile fuel cells or H₂ engines, or in the production of renewable fuels. Solid oxide fuel cells make it possible to reconvert hydrogen into electricity and heat. H₂ boilers serve to produce steam and heat using hydrogen.
