If renewable energy is going to meet the requirements of global energy consumption and distribution, a workable energy storage solution is required.
Batteries will be part of the answer, especially for storing and providing short bursts of energy. But when we consider how much our demand for clean energy will increase and the limited capacity of the electricity distribution network we also need to consider off grid solutions and longer term options.
Fossil fuels such as oil and coal have been a very convenient way for us to store and transport fuel, and we need to find workable alternatives in order to deliver a carbon free future.
Hydrogen as a Fuel
GeoPura is among a growing number of companies who believe that hydrogen and fuel cell technology offers the perfect solution.
If you generate hydrogen using electrolysis and a renewable energy source such as solar or wind you produce zero carbon green hydrogen.
When hydrogen is ‘burnt’ in a fuel cell it produces heat and electricity with the only ‘exhaust’ being water (H2O), making it entirely emissions free.
Swapping our energy production to renewable sources and storing energy as green hydrogen will enable us to deliver as much zero emissions, clean energy as we require: anywhere in the world.
The Future is Green Hydrogen
Emissions free production. When renewable energy is used to produce hydrogen through water electrolysis the entire process is 100% emissions free.
Renewable energy storage. Renewable energy generation relies on weather and local conditions and generators experience peaks and troughs. Using peak production times to create Green Hydrogen is a way to store excess capacity.
Growing market. Our economy is being decarbonised and electrified. Green hydrogen can be used directly as a fuel or to generate 100% renewable, emissions free electricity to meet this growing demand for clean energy.
Off-grid production and generation. Transporting green hydrogen as either a gas or a liquid fuel enables vast amounts of electricity to be generated locally using fuel cell technology. This means that hydrogen can be produced and increased electricity demand can be managed outside of local grid constraints.
Zero Emissions Energy. The only by-product of generating electricity with a fuel cell and green hydrogen is heat and pure H2O.
