The Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy, Professor Andreas Pinkwart, recently informed himself about the planned hydrogen quarter "Old Slaughterhouse" in the district town of Euskirchen. It is intended to build the entire housing area with hydrogen as an energy carrier.

In the project under the responsibility of Euskirchener Baugesellschaft mbH, DC power lines are to be installed to a large extent. This DC grid, which is unique in Europe, offers enormous CO2 savings potential, estimated at around 267 tonnes per year. As a long-standing partner and component supplier of UMSTRO GmbH, Proton Motor was presented as a manufacturer and developer of German fuel cells at the presentation, where Sales Manager Anne Duval was on site.
