  • Engie EPS has actually introduced its hydrogen-based power storage space system developed with its proprietary modern technology in Greece.

Engie EPS, has revealed the unveiling of the hydrogen-based energy storage system developed with its exclusive technology in Agkistro, Greece.

The Agkistro website, presented in October in an occasion gone to by numerous agents of Greek authorities and also of the technological and also academia, has been established in the framework of the EU-H2020 moneyed project qualified "Remote location Energy supply with Multiple Options for incorporated hydrogen-based Technologies" (REMOTE).

The project intends to show the advantages of hydrogen-based technologies for renewable energy storage space in separated as well as off-grid areas and has actually been awarded as the most effective renewable resource project in the Innovation section at the European Sustainable Energy Week 2020.

The technology introduced by Enegie is anticipated to allow the Greek renewable resource gamer HORIZON S.A. to supply a power independent agri-food handling device, utilizing part of the created power from the close-by HORIZON owned hydroelectric plant to generate hydrogen, which will certainly be after that stored as well as utilized for power generation when needed.

" Engie EPS has originated hydrogen considering that 2005, and has actually gone to the leading edge of battery storage space and also microgrids given that 2012" claimed Carlalberto Guglielminotti, ENGIE EPS' CEO and General Manager. "With the finalisation of the Agkistro's plant, our hydrogen exclusive technology is now proven in 4 continents as the only readily available choice to make microgrids 100 percent eco-friendly. For the future, we are also targeting utility-scale chances as system integrator as well as innovation supplier, leveraging our patented technology system and also unrivaled hydrogen and also storage experience for our Industrial Solutions line of product."

EPS' equipment in Agkistro includes a hydrogen "Power-to-Power" system made by an electrolyser, transforming electricity into hydrogen (Power-to-Gas), and also a fuel cell system, converting hydrogen saved in large amounts back to power (Gas-to-Power), both based upon ENGIE EPS' proprietary technology covered by more than 130 patents.

The system will certainly benefit from the continual accessibility of the eco-friendly hydroelectric energy that enables to minimise the Power-to-Gas sizing, while covering peak load demand and also guaranteeing back up energy thanks to the 500 kWh hydrogen storage space equal net power. The appointing and Site Acceptance Test have actually been finished successfully.
