Hydrogen has emerged as an important part of the clean energy mix needed to ensure our future is sustainable; it has the power to drive the energy transition away from polluting fossil fuels.
Our patented high-temperature Hydrogen technology, coupled with our large-scale, long-duration storage can produce H2 with dramatically increased efficiencies and lower costs than alternative technologies currently in existence.
h2 production and STORAGE
MEANS ENERGY INDEPENDENCE
Using excess renewable wind and solar energy in an Electrolysis process to produce hydrogen is highly efficient, cost-effective, and 100% carbon-free.
Storelectric’s patented technology stores this energy – at TWh-scale and optimum pressure – in salt caverns that were previously used to store polluting methane gas.
Enabling sovereign nations to achieve energy independence by making secure, green energy available throughout the year, without price hikes, blackouts or emissions.
Hydrogen + SALT CAVERNS
An average lorry-sized tank, carrying hydrogen at 20bar pressure, can carry only 75kg of hydrogen. Therefore massive-scale storage is required.
Hydrogen is typically produced at 30-100 bar pressure; our pressure control system allows us to store it at the same pressures, minimising the energy consumed in storage.
AT OPTIMUM EFFICIENCY
Electrolysis (and fuel/chemical synthesis) do not operate as efficiently when powered intermittently.
By including CAES in a renewables & hydrogen project, we can deliver near-baseload energy to the electrolysers, as well as high-value services to the electricity grid.
THE ENERGY-SAVING WAY
Breaking water into hydrogen and oxygen takes vast amounts of energy.
Our patented technology can use the heat of compression from CAES (compressed air energy storage) to catalyse electrolysis. The more energy that comes from heat, the less is required from electricity.
