Gas grid feed-in for reduced CO2 emissions
The conversion of surplus wind power into hydrogen using H-TEC SYSTEMS electrolysers is becoming increasingly popular. At the Haurup wind farm, green hydrogen is fed into the natural gas network, thus significantly reducing CO2 emissions for many gas customers.
The initiator of the project is the renewable energy company "Energie des Nordens". The main shareholder, Greenpeace Energy, wants to feed up to 3 million kilowatt hours of green hydrogen into the gas grid each year from surplus wind power. This is made possible by an H-TEC SYSTEMS ME450/1400 electrolyser.
The existing gas grid on-site is used for the H2 feed in. This means that the existing infrastructure can quickly and easily take over the storage and transport of the hydrogen.
The nominal power is 1 megawatt, the production rate 210 Nm³/h. Annually, 530 t CO2 can be saved (Source: Windgas Haurup). The project was funded by the "NEW 4.0" program supported by the German government.
