Hydrogen and Fuel Cells for Resiliency: Hydrogen for Power-to-Gas Energy Storage

May 12, 2016 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

As renewable energy supplies increase, the ability to match unscheduled intermittent energy supply with consumer demand becomes increasingly problematic. This imbalance is driving the need for long term, large scale energy storage solutions.  One promising approach is to use hydrogen as a Power-to-Gas (P2G) energy storage medium.  P2G allows for the efficient storage of high density energy without release of CO2 or other greenhouse gas emissions.

This webinar provides an overview of P2G’s unique features associated with the conversion of electrical energy into chemical energy, project siting, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and decreased reliance on imported hydrocarbon fuels.  Learn about commercially available P2G technologies currently being demonstrated here in the United States and in other countries, and how P2G can be used to support the use of renewable energy generation.
