It is a presentation project advertised by Fusion Fuel, which put to work 15 of its HEVO-Solar units-- hydrogen generators incorporating mini-electrolysers and concentrated photovoltaic or pv (CPV) solar panels. Ballard provided its 200-kW FCwave fuel cell module to convert green hydrogen from the center into electricity.

The plant will certainly generate 15 tonnes of green hydrogen per year and also enable Fusion Fuel to market power right into the grid during durations of peak demand, Ballard stated.

"We are enjoyed lastly have the ability to appoint our H2Évora project, Portugal's very first fully incorporated solar-to-green hydrogen plant," said Frederico Figueira de Chaves, Co-Head as well as Chief Financial Officer at Fusion Fuel.

"While this moderate facility has actually efficiently been superseded by several of the larger-scale projects we have under advancement, its worth can not be underrated. We can currently eagerly anticipate H2Evora giving emissions-free power to the grid for several years ahead, a presentation of the flexibility of green hydrogen and also our HEVO-Solar remedy, specifically thinking about the drawn-out energy crisis roiling European markets," Figueira de Chaves included.
