The demonstration venture, comprised of 15 HEVO-Photo voltaic items and related steadiness of plant tools, will produce 15 tons of inexperienced hydrogen per yr and displace 135 tons of CO2 yearly. The ability features a 200-kilowatt FCwave gas cell module provided by Ballard Energy Techniques, which is used to transform its inexperienced hydrogen into electrical energy, enabling Fusion Gas to promote energy into the electrical grid in periods of peak demand. The mixing of Fusion Gas’s solar-to-hydrogen HEVO answer and Ballard’s gas cell know-how is a strong proof of idea for the usage of hydrogen as a versatile power storage vector and off-grid energy provide.
“We’re thrilled to lastly be capable of fee our H2Évora venture, Portugal’s first totally built-in solar-to-green hydrogen plant” stated Frederico Figueira de Chaves, Co-Head and Chief Monetary Officer at Fusion Gas. “Whereas this modest facility has successfully been outmoded by among the larger-scale tasks we’ve beneath improvement, its worth can’t be understated. We will now sit up for H2Évora offering emissions-free energy to the grid for a few years to return, an indication of the flexibleness of inexperienced hydrogen and our HEVO-Photo voltaic answer, significantly contemplating the protracted power disaster roiling European markets. The ability may even function an essential proving floor for our R&D staff as we proceed to roll out future iterations of our know-how. I wish to take this chance to thank everybody who had a hand in serving to us obtain this essential milestone.”
João Galamba, Deputy Minister and Secretary of State for Vitality in Portugal, added that Portugal aspires to be on the forefront of all inexperienced hydrogen tasks and is counting on Fusion Gas to assist obtain this purpose.
“The H2Évora venture, because of its pioneering spirit, is an ideal instance of how Fusion Gas can contribute to our collective success” stated Mr Galamba.
