German Utility Deploys Proton Exchange Membrane System

German utility E.ON will soon deploy a 1 MW hydrogen energy storage system in the City of Hamburg, Germany. The system, which is to be purchased from Hydrogenics, will function on the advanced proton exchange membrane (PEM) technology to produce hydrogen.

Once installed, the PEM system in Hamburg will be the largest in the world. It will store excess energy generated by renewable energy sources as hydrogen in a “Power-To-Gas” facility.

The facility is starting construction by the second quarter of 2013.
