NuScale Power Signs Research Collaboration Agreement for Clean Hydrogen Production
- Dec 5, 2022 5:42 pm GMT
NuScale's flexible SMR technology has the potential to balance and stabilize renewable-dominated power grids by producing hydrogen. Energy markets present reliability problems at a time when energy demand is high and renewable energy production is low. In these markets, hydrogen would be used as a final product or as a stored energy source that would be processed through a reversible solid oxide fuel cell (RSOFC) for electricity generation.
'Hydrogen has been identified as a pathway to global decarbonization and NuScale's SMR technology complements this goal through low-carbon hydrogen production,' said
A NuScale control room simulator will be modified to evaluate IES dynamics and will include models for the solid oxide electrolysis cell system (SOEC) for hydrogen production, plus an RSOFC for electricity production. The research will consider the number of NuScale Power Modules needed for use in SOEC hydrogen production and the amount of hydrogen stored for subsequent electricity production. In addition, the local economic factors of the
'We are pleased to join this collaboration, which is in line with our efforts to explore technologies that have the potential to enable decarbonisation and support the energy transition,' said
