The production of green hydrogen and its scale-up require the enginering and installation of new electrolysis plants. Modular electrolysis plants ease the scale-up as they allow to add further modules with growing demand. While many engineering methods focus on the detailed planning of the plants and their automation systems, the early engineering phases are scarcely considered, supported or formalized. However, especially these phases are crucial in the current scale-up of modular electrolysis plants. In this paper, an intention-based engineering approach for the early engineering phases Requirements Engineering and Conceptual Engineering for modular electrolysis plants is presented and evaluated based on three different use cases. The approach is based on Goal-oriented Requirements Engineering from Software Engineering and relies on an early, systematic as well as formalized description and analysis of intentions of different engineering disciplines.
