Wasserstoff aus Windkraft

Hydrogen from wind power

How to store and transport renewable energy? One possibility is tested by Vattenfall Europe in the HafenCity Hamburg at a hydrogen station. Here hydrogen is produced on site by electrolyses and distributed to fuel-cell cars and busses -- for a emission free mobility.


How a Renewable Hydrogen Fueling Station Works

HyGen believes the hydrogen infrastructure is mostly in place. With electricity and water universally available, the missing piece is on-site equipment to extract hydrogen from water using electricity.

Major automobile manufacturers have hydrogen fuel cell vehicles ready for mass production with expected volume sales to begin in 2015. Vehicles need fuel like people need food. It’s a commodity that will always be required and will always be in demand. Supplying that fuel is a profitable business with predictable, very long-term revenues. Long-term revenues attract capital and capital expenditure is all that is required for the hydrogen infrastructure. No need for new pipelines, just the installation of profit-generating equipment. If the business model works in low volume, it will work even better as equipment costs reduce with mass production.

As developer of several Southern California renewable hydrogen fueling stations, including the world’s first in Los Angeles, HyGen has the necessary experience to oversee the planned rollout of hydrogen stations to meet California and the nation’s goals for an alternate solution to fossil fuels...snip
