How to navigate
The interactive map includes hydrogen infrastructure projects and shows the development of projects in 2030, 2040 and 2050. The projects are split into 5 categories including transmission pipelines, distribution pipelines, terminals and ports, storages, as well as demand and production projects.
The map allows to zoom in/out on a specific country or region by double clicking on the map via the mouse or using the zoom in feature in the left corner. Navigation through the map is available by scrolling and moving the cursor over the map. The map also includes a menu in the right corner, which allows the user to select projects based on category and timestamp. The individual features can be switched on and off based on user’s preference, showing the selection of desired projects on the map.
The transmission projects are visualised with lines, while other projects are visualised with symbols, indicated in the legend. The projects are differentiated based on whether they are ‘new’ (newly build infrastructure for hydrogen use), ‘conversion of existing infrastructure’ (conversion of existing gas infrastructure asset for hydrogen use), ‘new and converted’ (partly newly built + partly converted) using a colour code.
Some distribution projects have the label of ‘completed’ (projects including studies and trial use of hydrogen successfully conducted in the past) and some high-pressure distribution projects are depicted as dotted lines. All the information is available in the legend below the map.
The projects’ location is approximate and for some less advanced projects indicative as the respective project is still in an early stage in the process. In addition, by clicking on the icon in the left corner ‘show we where I am’ and enabling access to your location, it is possible to find the respective projects located in the user’s current location.
The project’s information can be displayed in pop-up window which appears by clicking the cursor over a symbol or a line. The pop-up window shows specific information including project name, promotor name, project type, description, and additional information.
