The two GÖRG partners Dr. Jan-Henric M. Punte and Dr. Christian Glauer advised WEW GmbH with regard to a further funding round. After the successful proof-of-concept of the WEW electrolyzer technology, the financial basis has now been laid for the installation of a pilot manufacturing line as well as the realization of the first hydrogen production plants with customers. Green or renewably produced hydrogen is considered a key factor in the success of the energy transition. The parties have agreed not to disclose the exact details of the deal.
