    2. RWE Launches Power-to-Gas Storage System

      RWE Launches Power-to-Gas Storage System

      German utility firm RWE has launched a power-to-gas storage system, which it claims has achieved efficiencies as high as 86%. The plant uses excess electricity from the local grid to create hydrogen via an electrolyser bult by UK firm ITM Power. The hydrogen is pumped into the natural gas network and heat from the process is drawn by a district heating system. The hydrogen can be called on to generate power when it is needed.

    3. Hydrogenics to Supply 1MW Electrolyzer to Project Converting CO2 to Methanol; Power-to-Gas

      Hydrogenics to Supply 1MW Electrolyzer to Project Converting CO2 to Methanol; Power-to-Gas

      Hydrogenics Corporation will supply a 1MW electrolyzer and provide engineering expertise to a consortium of companies working on the European project MefCO2 (methanol fuel from CO2) in Germany. The application will take excess electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources, generate green hydrogen, and then create methanol using a low-carbon footprint production plant and carbon dioxide emissions from an existing coal-fired power plant in Essen, Germany owned by STEAG Gmbh, which operates a number of regional power plants and distributed energy facilities.

      Hydrogen Storage Could Hold Key to Power for the People

      Some of the world's top hydrogen scientists recently met in Wellington to share the results of a four-year project that analysed the market readiness of storing renewable hydrogen gas to power remote communities. Callaghan Innovation researchers also showcased their own HyLink system, the result of more than 10 years' work, which they say has proven renewable energy, such as excess solar power, can be stored as hydrogen.

    5. Power-to-Gas Enables Massive Energy Storage

      Power-to-Gas Enables Massive Energy Storage

      Power-to-Gas (PtG) enables the natural gas pipeline network to be used for energy storage, resolving many of the integration issues that plague intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. It is well known that finding a solution for scalable energy storage is critical in the pursuit of achieving a renewable energy future. While batteries, pumped-hydro, flywheels and other technologies have their merits, none are able to offer seasonal deep storage at the terawatt scale. Power-to-Gas is an elegant innovation that simply takes excess renewable electricity to create renewable hydrogen and methane for injection into natural gas pipelines or use in transportation.

      Germany and Canada Are Building Water Splitters to Store Renewable Energy

      Germany, which has come to rely heavily on wind and solar power in recent years, is launching more than 20 demonstration projects that involve storing energy by splitting water into hydrogen gas and oxygen. The projects could help establish whether electrolysis, as the technology is known, could address one of the biggest looming challenges for renewable energy—its intermittency.

      Novel Bromine Battery: Small-Scale Demo, Large-Scale Promise

      The availability of low-cost, high-capacity energy storage technology could profoundly change today’s energy landscape. The ability to store electricity when supplies are abundant and deliver it later when they’re not would permit widespread use of intermittent sources such as solar and wind; ensure efficient, reliable power delivery by both central and distributed grids; and make possible portable energy storage for developing nations and for mobile industrial operations. Electrochemical systems such as batteries and fuel cells seem promising candidates for the energy-storage job. They can be sited wherever they’re needed, and they can be discharged and recharged quickly and efficiently.

    9. Siemens Plans Electrolyzer System to Store Wind Power as Hydrogen

      Siemens Plans Electrolyzer System to Store Wind Power as Hydrogen

      In the German city of Mainz, Siemens, together with the public utilities of Mainz, Linde and the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, has laid the foundation stone for a new type of energy storage system. From spring 2015, the system, equipped with an electrolyzer from Siemens, will convert surplus electricity from wind farms to hydrogen. The hydrogen will then be stored locally in tankers or fed directly into the natural gas grid for subsequent power or heat generation. In this way, it will be possible to store electricity from renewable sources over longer periods of time. The tankers will also be able to supply the growing network of hydrogen filling stations for emission-free fuel-cell vehicles. The system will have a peak rating of up to 6 MW. The project, which will cost 17 million, is being financed with the support of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology as part of the Energy Storage Funding Initiative.

    10. Port Of Honolulu Will Soon Be Home To State-Of-The-Art Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

      Port Of Honolulu Will Soon Be Home To State-Of-The-Art Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology

      The Port of Honolulu will soon be home a state-of-the-art hydrogen fuel cell auxiliary power system — providing clean low-emissions power to docked and/or anchored ships. The current plan — which follows up on last year’s pre-pilot study and analysis — is for a highly portable, self-contained hydrogen fuel cell unit to be deployed to the dock in 2015. The fuel cell unit will be able to provide power whether floating on a barge or sitting on a dock, and will be easily transportable to wherever power is needed.

      Hydrogen Battery Aims to Replace Lithium Counter-Parts

      Researchers at Melbourne's RMIT University have developed a novel concept battery that advances the potential for hydrogen to replace lithium as an energy source in battery-powered devices. The new concept combines the best aspects of hydrogen fuel cells with battery-based electrical power. The proton flow battery concept eliminates the need for the production, storage and recovery of hydrogen gas, which currently limit the efficiency of conventional hydrogen-based electrical energy storage systems.
