Fraunhofer IISB builds long-term energy storage with hydrogen technology

  • 14 August 2017

A world-wide unique system for the compact storage of large quantities of energy is set up at Fraunhofer IISB in Erlangen and integrated into a modern DC power grid. As part of the center of excellence for electronic systems LZE, research is being conducted on how such an energy storage unit can contribute to the safe and clean energy supply of industrial plants and larger building complexes.

Gasunie invests in first 1 MW Power-to-gas installation in the Netherlands

  • 18 July 2017

Gasunie has announced that it will invest in a power-to-gas installation at the site of the gas storage location near Zuidwending in the Dutch province of Groningen. Gasunie subsidiaries EnergyStock and New Energy aim to convert sustainable electricity into hydrogen at its Underground Gas Storage Zuidwending using approximately 5,000 solar panels. In addition, sustainable energy will be delivered to the project from Tennet’s high-voltage electricity grid. This pilot project (HyStock) will be the first power-to-gas facility in the Netherlands with a capacity of 1 Megawatt. The location is ideal because it offers the opportunity of future large-scale storage of hydrogen in salt caverns made suitable for gas storage. Through HyStock, the Gasunie subsidiaries aim to contribute, together with market parties, to the further development of the hydrogen market and apply new technologies on a larger scale. [...]

Our objectives

  • Map out when power-to-gas can be implemented succesfully
  • Support the formation fo collaborations
  • Involve all stakeholders in exploring the possibilities in Europe
  • Line up all stakeholders for supporting R&D and demonstration projects
