The use of renewable energy to produce green hydrogen by electrolysis is the most flexible way to store energy. Stored green hydrogen can be used to refuel transport, to decarbonise industrial processes or simply used to generate power back to the grid. Energy storage supports generation when demand peaks, facilitates demand shifting and provides reliable backup power – all without the use of polluting fossil fuels.
The global hydrogen production market is expected to double in the next decade.
Incorporating energy storage on the grid helps to balance supply and demand by storing any ‘excess’ power and making it available when it’s needed. Energy storage enhances the flexibility of the grid; as we add more renewable energy we need to increase storage capacity.
Energy storage maximises self-sufficiency in renewable power, which is the key to further reducing electricity spend.
We work with our partners to integrate battery and green hydrogen storage with our renewable energy plants to offer clean, reliable power that can provide an instant response in the case of outages while enabling cost savings.
