Hydrogenics’ Major Energy Storage Project

Hydrogenics, together with eight other partners, has won a hydrogen storage system project for renewable electricity linked to refueling facility in Europe.

The project, which is called “Don Quichote”, includes a financial contribution of 2.86 million euros by the European Commission, under the auspices of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), and will take five years to complete.

This project seeks to increase renewable-based electricity, grid balancing, sustainable mobility and the use of clean hydrogen. It aims to demonstrate and validate system-level technology readiness while maintaining a high safety level and generate further data for the expansion of renewable electricity and hydrogen-fueled, sustainable mobility.

The core innovation of the Don Quichote project will consist of combining a 350 bar electrochemical compressor, a 30Nm3 PEM electrolyzer system, and a 90 kW fuel cell system to demonstrate the technical and economical viability of an integrated hydrogen storage system for renewable electricity linked to a hydrogen refueling facility.

The consortium will design, build, deploy and operate the system at the Colruyt site near Brussels to double the capacity of the existing 350 bar fueling station to 130 kilograms per day and install a fuel cell system for electricity demand leveling.

Carbon Proton Battery Stores As Much Energy As Lithium Battery In Lab Tests

“Will anything match lithium-ion batteries for energy density?” is a frequently repeated question. It’s certainly not in the cards in the next few years. But the research coming out of Australia’s RIMT University in Melbourne says that one day, it’s possible – with a carbon proton battery. The research team have designed and built a…

How can Europe find its’ place within the solar-plus-storage-market?

  Will Europe succeed in developing Solar-Plus-Storage Market? It definitely will, and much will depend on subsidy-free solar projects.  As the global front-of-the-meter (FTM) solar-plus-storage market in 2018 showed fabulous results, 2019 promises to be hugely more successful.  Although many prosperous countries like the USA, South Korea and Australia already deployed more than 540 megawatts…

Why The Business Case For Energy Storage Depends on The Weather

According to Dr Björn Peters, a speaker at our upcoming energy storage forum, putting weather patterns as a main variable within a business case analysis will show where energy storage makes more sense, and in some cases a critical decision. For off-grid mining operations in hot climates, for example, there might be a better business case…
