New Era Offshore Green Hydrogen Production
The transition to renewable hydrogen energy is a necessity to solve the climate change crisis globally. To solve this issue, the world will need large amounts of green hydrogen, and offshore wind will provide a large part of the power needed for its production.
The solution is to integrate an electrolyzer into an offshore wind turbine as a single synchronized system to directly produce green hydrogen. This is done by coupling an onshore 3-MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbine with a 430-kW electrolyzer-Brande Hydrogen.
Renewable hydrogen is the only viable sustainable solution to reduce the emissions of hard-to-electrify industries.
Green hydrogen is seen as a future technology in offshore wind as:
1. Large-scale renewable hydrogen production is possible and economically viable.
2. Broad and cheap energy can be used in hard to electrify sectors that have been causing high pollution, such as transport and heavy industries.
3. Developments will enable the decarbonization of heavy industries.
The new era of offshore green hydrogen production offers some long term benefits which include:
1. The cost reduction of renewable hydrogen production.
2. Resource diversification (opportunity for more countries).
3. Revenue source (local use, export).
4. The decarbonization of the global energy system will unleash the potential of wind energy to produce competitive renewable hydrogen for hard-to-electrify sectors such as steel, ceramics, and ammonia production.
5. Opportunity to tap more of the existing renewable energy sources (address energy access, meet the green targets, combat climate change).
6. Tackling climate change is the fastest and most cost-effective way to decarbonize the economy.
Join the 3rd edition green hydrogen forum today as we gather senior decision-makers representing the public and private sector, policymakers, and research institutes interested in offshore wind green hydrogen for a discussion on the promotion of this promising technology.
