Power to Gas Option

Sustainable power systems such as Solar PV and Wind create power from sustainable sources but the production is variable. What happens to the excess power that is not immediately used? The current options include being stored as heat in a saline solution or in lead acid or lithium ion batteries. However, there is another way, which is more environmentally friendly and more efficient.

BLue line

 

This graphic illustrates the problem. The blue line is the power produced from a source like Solar PV or Wind over a period of time. The green line is the power drawn from this source. What happens to the power created above the green line?

The power to gas process utilises this excess power to create hydrogen gas.

Utilising the excess power from Solar PV and wind can create subsidiary commercial opportunities in the supply of industrial gases and power generation. The Hydrogenics electrolyser gas production system can be fine-tuned to provide high purity hydrogen and oxygen for medical and other specialised uses.

Gas storage and compression systems are available to utilise the gases produced and store and distribute them at a commercial level.

Alternatively, a fuel cell power system can be designed to utilise the gas produced and optimised for the system for electrical production. (See  Zeus Backup Power Systems and Hydrogen Power Systems).

For further information, download the Power to Gas Brochure.

Alberfield can assist with assessing existing power consumption, and work with you to design the best system for your current and future power needs.

design considerations questionnaire

The HySTAT Hydrogen containerised gas production system can accommodate a range of production and storage needs. The following questionnaire will begin the design process to utilise the surplus electrical energy available to create hydrogen and oxygen gas or a new power supply system. These questions enable a preliminary design to be completed to allow for an initial cost assessment for a hydrogen production facility meeting your nominated requirements. Depending on the information provided, a more detailed assessment may be required before a formal quotation is provided.
