Hydrogen and Fuel Cells for Resiliency: Hydrogen for Power-to-Gas Energy Storage

By | May 13, 2016

As renewable energy supplies increase, the ability to match unscheduled intermittent energy supply with consumer demand becomes increasingly problematic. This imbalance is driving the need for long term, large scale energy storage solutions.  One promising approach is to use hydrogen as a Power-to-Gas (P2G) energy storage medium.  P2G allows for the efficient storage of high density energy without release of CO2 or other greenhouse gas emissions.

This presentation provided an overview of the unique features associated with the conversion of electrical energy into chemical energy, project siting, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and decreased reliance on imported hydrocarbon fuels.  Participance learned about commercially available P2G technologies currently being demonstrated here in the United States and in other countries, and how P2G can be used to support the use of renewable energy generation.

This webinar is a presentation of the Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster (NEESC) and Clean Energy Group’s Resilient Power Project, and will be hosted by Resilient Power Project Director Todd Olinsky-Paul. For more information, please visit www.neesc.org or www.resilient-power.com.
