[Translate to Englisch:] Windstromelektrolyse

Wind Powered Electrolysis

 

Combining pre-existing wind power stations with a complementary energy system fuelled by hydrogen is the mainstay of hydrogen generation at Ewald. Part of the renewably generated electricity is stored as hydrogen which itself is generated by electrolysis. The hydrogen can be converted back into electricity when needed by using a fuel cell hydrogen hybrid internal combustion engine.

The advantage of this system is obvious: by using green hydrogen wind energy, which is dependant on the weather and which is liable to fluctuate greatly, can be stored. H2Herten user centre's own decentralised energy supply, its wind powered electrolysis, is a unique selling point which also serves as a platform for research, application and as a demonstration of what a future decentralised energy supply could look like.
