Current developments are strongly directed towards renewable electricity generation using wind farms and solar panels and to use this partly to generate Hydrogen as an energy storage to overcome the variability of these sources.

Only storage in molecules is able to store sufficient energy to bridge large gaps in the production by renewables. But the limitations and challenges related to Hydrogen are grossly underestimated: the required electrical power, the additional hardware and the clean water supply.

So, what are the major challenges at this moment and in the future?

In this whitepaper, the following topics are discussed:

  • The required electrical power
  • Capacity of electrolysers
  • Natural Gas versus H2
  • Transport of H2
  • Reducing wasting energy
