Sustainable solutions made in Augsburg

MAN Energy Solutions’ vision to become a sustainable solutions provider, is heavily driven and supported from the Augsburg plant. The site is MAN’s development and production center for the important four-stroke gas engine technology. Furthermore, business development for the upcoming Power-to-X and hydrogen solutions is led from Augsburg. Together with its subsidiary H-TEC SYSTEMS, the company is developing electrolyzers and other technology for the production of green hydrogen.

Technology innovation


The rise of renewables is good for the planet. Converting renewable electricity into storable fuels spreads the benefit of carbon-neutral energy across sectors. The power-to-X process allows for just that. It is a transformation technology that converts electricity into carbon-neutral synthetic fuels, which can then be used in other sectors or be stored until needed.
