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.

How Can Energy Storage Systems Reduce Investment Expenditure for TSOs/DSOs?

Our demand for energy continues to grow – and while generation has kept up with demand, infrastructure improvements have lagged behind. Bringing grid infrastructure to modern standards is not a simple task. With most power grids many decades old, Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and Distribution System Operators (DSOs) face expensive decisions. Is it more cost-effective…

What lessons can be learnt from the UK’s latest Capacity Auction?

This month’s UK capacity market auction left a bitter taste in the mouths of optimistic developers, with final prices low enough to discourage new developments in clean energy and energy storage. This year’s T-4 auction clearing price of GBP £8.40 per kW a year – just over 60% lower than that of last year’s auction….

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…
