Building Innovative Green Hydrogen systems in an Isolated Territory: a pilot for Europe

Deliverables

6 Month Operation Report

The main operational parameters that will be monitored and logged are as follows: • Electrolyser: All safety and process sensors (including H2 in air, H2 pressure at numerous points in the process, incoming current and voltage, stack current and voltage, stack water flow, process temperature, ambient temperature, water levels etc) • Hydrogen stores and tube trailers (when connected to the system): Pressure • Hydrogen refuelling station: H2 Consumption based on vehicle registration number, H2 output flow, coolant temperature, compressor operation, tank pressures. • Stationary Fuel Cell: Operational profile, stack voltage and current, output voltage and current, system and ambient temperature • School - catalytic boilers: H2 tank pressures (to calculate H2 consumption) In addition to OHT operated equipment, the performance of the FC vans will be studied. The consumption of each vehicle is logged by the refueller and when combined with odometer data from OIC, their efficiency can be calculated. (ITM) KPIs will include: • Operating profit / loss of OHT • Availability of hydrogen to end-users • Average hydrogen transferred each ferry journey • End user demand • Curtailed energy not captured due to H2 storage full • Carbon savings compared to fossil based alternatives

An updated report of the business models to be disseminated to follower territories (the Final Replication Study) and OHT

The business models will be examined again in Year 6 to compare measured values eg the amount of H2 generation cost of repairs and maintenance etc to what was predicted in Year 1 2

Exploitation and dissemination plan

The Draft Dissemination and Exploitation Plan is presented in this Deliverable 6.1. This gives details of the how the impact of the project will be maximised through dissemination activities with key stakeholder. The dissemination will emphasise the benefits from wider replication and further deployments of renewable energy with fuel cell & hydrogen (FCH) technology in isolated or constrained territories.

An updated report into the societal impact of the project

An updated report into the societal impact of the project after year 6 of the project

Exploitation and dissemination plan v3

Report with the Dissemination and Exploitation Plan updated in month 72

An updated report into the environmental impact of the project

The report will be updated with accurate figures in year six based on the data analysis and reports compiled in WP4 Critical analysis performed in year six

Exploitation and dissemination plan v2

Report with the Dissemination and Exploitation Plan updated in month 42

A report of the business models to be disseminated to OHT and follower territories

At the start of the project (Year 1) a financial analysis will be undertaken considering several scenarios. This will include consideration of capital and operational costs and the generation of cash flow projections. An analysis in HOMER (or similar tool) of possible business models and hydrogen integration in the follower territory and other possible territories included in the Hydrogen Territories Platform will be included in the report.

A report into the environmental impact of the project

The environmental impact of the project will be assessed. The report will include the calculation of the energy balance of the H2 production and transport, followed by a detailed Life Cycle Assessment according to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044.

A report into the societal impact of the project

Societal impact analysis will be conducted using Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) methodology and will consider the impact categories: human capital, cultural heritage and human well-being. Five main stakeholder categories are defined: workers, local community, society (national and global), consumers, and value chain actors. Of special interest are indicators as the number of jobs created and the attitudes towards hydrogen within the local population. The latter will take the form of a survey of the public and stakeholders to note improvement using a suitable tool such as SurveyMonkey. This first report will be written after year 1.
