So what is a hydrogen hub? It is a major user of green hydrogen that will use renewable electricity from the grid to produce adequate supplies of green hydrogen via an electrolyzer and store this hydrogen in high pressure tanks. The storage might have several functions:
- The electrolyzer can be sized based on average demand rather than peak demand.
- Storage potentially disassociates times of production and use to allow the electrolyzer to use the least-cost renewable electricity for the former when it’s available.
- Stored hydrogen can be used for backup when there is an electric outage.
As I started considering the IEEE Spectrum article used as a source for a future article, I found a lot to like. First of all, it described in detail the changes we (our societies) must make to implement Electric Vehicles, but also explored the..
