More news from Orkney - an existing and expanding hydrogen economy.
In a world first project, tidal power is set to be combined with vanadium flow batteries to produce continuous green hydrogen.
The project will be located on the island of Eday, Orkney, at the European Marine Energy Centre’s (EMEC) tidal energy test site, with a 1.8MWh flow battery from Invinity Energy Systems installed to help "smooth" tidal generation.
While tidal generation is predictable, it is variable with two high tides and two low a day. This makes it an extremely heavy cycling application, which can be very hard on conventional lithium-ion batteries, degrading them much faster than when they are used with technologies like solar PV.
