The technologies used for this project are based on solar panels, green hydrogen production and storage, high power fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries. Those technologies are well known but newly combined to obtain a bankable, modular, scalable, and ready to be deployed power solution.
The Solar Power Plant generates the carbon-free primary source of electricity for the Renewstable® Power Plant when the sun is shining.
The Battery Storage provides the end of the day peak power and, in combination with the hydrogen storage, ensures the stability of the electricity service.
The long-term H2 Storage System:
converts electricity from the photovoltaic park into hydrogen using an electrolyze system during the day, turning water and oxygen into hydrogen,
stores the gaseous hydrogen produced in horizontal metallic tanks and then,
produces electricity from stored hydrogen using a Hydrogen Fuel Cell during the night.
Hydrogen technology has been around since the 19th century. This technology is well-known for being proven and non-polluting. HDF works exclusively with the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of hydrogen energy systems.
The long-term hydrogen storage technology is based on the water cycle: it consists in breaking down a water molecule (H2O) and then recomposing it. The system only emits oxygen and water. It contains no chemicals, therefore there are no harmful emissions or pollutants.
