From the very beginning, electricity production has been linked with carbon dioxide emissions. With electricity production methods now moving more towards solar and wind energy, electricity is no longer produced in line with demand but based on the availability of the fluctuating resources. This situation calls for energy storage.
Negative balancing energy
Water electrolysis is the one discussed negative balancing energy for the electricity grid and for direct connection to renewable electricity production units as it serves not only power to power but offers a far wider product portfolio. Options for power to gas, power to fuel, power to heat and power to chemicals are available using this technology route. Direct use of hydrogen is expected to revolutionize our transport sector, with cars, buses and trucks powered by hydrogen.
- Adding value to electricity
- Flexible and continuous hydrogen production
- Options are energy storage or use as an energy carrier in various applications
