Introducing the “Hydrogen Power Feed” concept

At EGI, we understand that large-scale green hydrogen production facilities require substantial and reliable amounts of green energy to function optimally. As experts in power grid systems, we are committed to supporting developers of such projects in implementing the appropriate power system to ensure reliability and maximize the utilization of their facilities.

The Challenges of Feeding Large Scale Green H2 Electrolysers

In large green hydrogen facilities, the power needed is sourced from renewable energy generation systems such as wind farms or solar panels, both of which utilize power electronics. Additionally, bulk power transmission lines often employ High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology, which also incorporates complex power electronics control schemes. The electricity generated by these renewable sources and transmitted through HVDC lines is then fed into the electrolyzers, which themselves consist of power electronics. This conjunction of complexities makes the system very difficult to operate even when carefully designed.

Ensuring the proper operation of such complex systems is even more challenging due to the variable nature of the renewable energy sources involved. The wind does not blow continuously, and the sun does not shine around the clock. This intermittency necessitates careful management and advanced coordination to maintain the stability and reliability of power supplied to the electrolyzers.

Our approach as Power Transmission Experts

At EGI, we recognize the complexities involved in integrating variable energy sources into the power system of green hydrogen facilities while maximizing production output. We recognize the importance of ensuring the correct functioning of the system, despite the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources, and we are committed to overcoming these challenges to help you achieve your sustainability goals.

Large green hydrogen facilities also require significant capital expenditures. To minimize downtime and maximize project benefits, a well-suited de-risking approach is crucial. With our expertise in grid design, planning, and complex system operation, we provide effective support to address these challenges and secure a positive business case.

Our team excels in developing power systems that efficiently handle fluctuations in renewable energy generation. We ensure a reliable and uninterrupted power supply to the electrolyzer by leveraging advanced studies and state-of-the-art technological solutions. Our focus is on capturing complex stability phenomena and designing robust mitigation measures tailored to your needs.

Together, we can drive the transition towards a greener and more sustainable future. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you embrace the Hydrogen Power Feed and play a pivotal role in the sustainable energy revolution!
