Green Hydrogen Hub Denmark: Explained

Green Hydrogen Hub Denmark: Explained

Europe is leading the new hydrogen industry and has been acknowledged as the emerging hydrogen ecosystem, from production and transmission, gas infrastructure, providing access to world-class thought leaders, the existing knowledge and experience provides a solid foundation to accelerate green hydrogen developments and future investments.

For renewable energy to be maximised, the excess power generated by renewables must be stored, at large capacities to manage the intermittency challenges with green energy supply. As of 1st December (2020), Green Hydrogen Hub Denmark was publicly launched as a project by its well-established and experienced consortium members. Through collaborations like these, the Danish green hydrogen economy can start to take shape, by uniting world-class partners and hydrogen solutions, based upon, technically innovative projects.

Green Hydrogen Hub Denmark is being developed, investigated and imagined by a hydrogen focused, strategically aligned set of thought leaders, who founded this vision in 2014 and, furthermore, can now be realised. A collaboration between Eurowind Energy, Corre Energy and Energinet’s subsidiary Gas Storage Denmark, it establishes the ambition to deliver a complete Power-to-X (PtX) value chain by 2025 for the production, storage and supply of green hydrogen to the industrial-sector.

The main purpose of Green Hydrogen Hub Denmark is to secure renewable energy irrespective of the weather. Specifically, the project is looking to establishing a 350 MW electrolysis plant, 200,000 MWh hydrogen storage and a 320 MW Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) facility, which as the final link in the value chain can re-convert green hydrogen to electricity. By combining seasonal hydrogen storage and daily storage, consumers can be provided with 100% green electricity 24 hours per day, seven days per week, throughout the year – comparable to 280,000 households. Green Hydrogen Hub Denmark can contribute to the European green transition by potentially displacing 600,000 tonnes of CO2 (carbon dioxide) annually, which distinguishes this platform as truly groundbreaking.
