The public utility companies (VBH) of Helgoland aims to supply convert their island with an emission-free heat supply.
We were assigned by the VBH to investigate the heat supply by means of hydrogen - from the electricity from off-shore wind turbines - in addition to mobility and power supply in a feasibility-study.
How can ships be supplied with energy during their laytime so that as few as possible greenhouse gas emissions burden the air on-site?
In this project, we are actively promoting the establishment of a hydrogen-powered port in Cuxhaven. Both the local industry and the port operations in Cuxhaven can be converted sustainably to renewable energies through the hydrogen produced in the Elbe-Weser region.
Morocco’s target is to increase the share of renewable energy in the country’s electricity generation capacity mix to 52% by 2030. Especially the capacity of wind energy and solar energy will significantly rise and lead to peaks in electricity generation.
A part of our Pre-Feasibility Study is focused on the power-to-gas process. In order to mitigate the effects of power fluctuations, an energy storage system based on hydrogen can be used, if the electricity generation plans cannot compensate for the peak and off-peak in electricity generation from renewables. In Addition, the production of Ammonia using green Hydrogen was also focus of this study.
Regarding the creation and development of the domestic renewable energy economy, we, together with other partners, have consulted Plambeck Emirates to carry out two Pre-Feasibility Studies for Saudi-Arabia. The first study incorporates a holistic approach for the long-term development of offshore and onshore wind in combination with climate-friendly production of water and hydrogen. The second study particularly focuses on offshore wind projects and the corresponding development.
Both Pre-Feasibility Studies demonstrate major opportunities for the development of renewable energy projects, the creation of local jobs, and the climate-neutral production of water and hydrogen – two crucial resources for the country's future path.
Autonomous Green Hydrogen Production
Solar meets Hydrogen. We have been harvesting the solar energy for many years now. The technology is proven. The benefits of green hydrogen generated by electrolysis are more than ever public and the technology is proven. Connecting the technologies, we conducted a study where Hydrogen can autonomously be generated by solar plants in North Africa or the middle east. This ensures a decentralized green Hydrogen production. The produced Hydrogen can be used directly (compressed or as liquefied H2) or can be converted into derivates like Ammonia, Methane or Methanol for further uses and transportation.
