Hydrogen Storage-Fuel Cell System to Smooth Out Intermittent Wind Power in Germany

Ontario’s Hydrogenics has won a contract from the German city of Herten to install a hydrogen production-storage-fuel cell system that the city will use to smooth out intermittent wind power generation. “Electrolyzing water into hydrogen using excess intermittent renewable energy is the optimal clean pathway to smart grid stabilization and energy storage capacity,” stated Hydrogenics’ CEO.

Storing Renewable Energy in Boxes of Air

Storage is needed to harvest the full yield available from intermittent sources of energy like wind and solar. One of the options is compressed-air storage; till now only possible in underground caverns. But SustainX Energy Solutions; a Dartmouth College start-up  that got $4 million in VC funding from Polaris Venture … [continued]
