Why Green Hydrogen?
Green hydrogen can be used to replace carbon-based fuels across a wide range of applications including heavy duty transport, industrial heat, heating homes and power generation. It‘s production creates no carbon and when combusted only water as a by-product.
How we use Green Hydrogen
We plan to use state-of-the-art electrolyser technology capable of responding rapidly to network signals to align hydrogen production with fluctuating renewable generation patterns, ramping up and down to match periods of surplus renewable energy. The hydrogen produced can then be stored before being used to run flexible generation at times of low renewable energy output.
Our hydrogen projects will reduce key challenges for the electricity network by:
By producing hydrogen at times of surplus renewable energy
Providing long duration storage
By storing hydrogen to provide energy security all year round
By using hydrogen to produce electricity at times of shortfall
