A hot idea for clean and sustainable hydrogen production powers towards commercialisation
When hydrogen and oxygen are combined in a fuel cell to produce electricity (a flow of ions), the only by-products are water and heat. However, there are many ways to produce hydrogen gas, many of which are not emission free. Generating hydrogen gas from renewable energy sources results in so-called 'green hydrogen', and it is the focus of the EU-funded HYDROSOL-beyond project. The team is culminating its HYDROSOL series of Horizon 2020 projects, aiming to optimise its hydrogen production plant that produces hydrogen via concentrated solar thermal power. Technical improvements and enhancements in process control will remove any remaining bottlenecks to commercialisation and uptake.
- H2020-EU.126.96.36.199. - Increase the energy efficiency of production of hydrogen mainly from water electrolysis and renewable sources while reducing operating and capital costs, so that the combined system of the hydrogen production and the conversion using the fuel cell system can compete with the alternatives for electricity production available on the market
