Future demand for on demand supply of hydrogen will require infrastructure and increased conversion capacities. For near shore wind parks an electrical cable seems most effective, as long as grid connection is available and its stability is not comprimized. Already here hydrogen may play a role, the real value however in larger distances to the onshore grid connection of a wind park. In such cases energy transport of hydorgen via pipelines has already been shown to more effective than using cables. Adding the benefit of storage for short or long periods, completes the case for hydrogen.
H2SEA will endeavor to provide the knowledge, services and project management to support economics for hydrogen developments by extending our concept range further with firm pricing for execution. Site specific data and distance to electrical connections and pipelines have a direct impact on the business case, please contact us for assistance.
