Hydrogen is used in many applications worldwide. Producing it in a clean and green way, has always been challenging, until now.
ITM Power has developed a rapid response, high pressure electrolyser product platform that is scalable from 0.5 to 100MW applications, converting surplus renewable energy via the splitting of water into its components hydrogen and oxygen. This enables the opportunity to decarbonise across industrial sectors, the green hydrogen being applicable to transport, chemicals, steel, plastic, as well as power, heat and fertilizer applications.
The use of electrolysis for energy storage is known as Power-to-Gas and it can increase significantly the flexibility of the electrical network that will necessarily be needed to integrate a large level of renewables power sources into the energy system. Hydrogen generation appears as one of the best approaches to provide massive storage of electricity for periods of several days to long-term seasonal storage.
Dr. Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power, commented, “Renewable energy supplies are regularly turned off when they exceed demand, it’s called ‘curtailment’. But ITM Power’s systems can harness and fully utilise this surplus renewable energy to create hydrogen.”
