MULTI PURPOSE - The same service station that provides freshly charged hydrogen batteries, doubles up as an energy store for the national grid of the country concerned. Why put in load levelling stations that only have one function? We hope this is a topic of discussion at the forthcoming UN COP 26 in Glasgow, Scotland in November 2021.

 

 

 

WHAT IS GRAY HYDROGEN ?

 

Gray hydrogen is hydrogen that is produced through steam methane reformation, which typically uses natural gas as the feedstock, in other words converting a fossil fuel into a more useful energy carrier. But it is not climate friendly, or an efficient use of resources when it comes to cooling planet earth.

 

Gray, hydrogen is cleaner that Brown hydrogen, but dirtier than Blue or Turquoise hydrogen. The cleanest from form of hydrogen production is Green hydrogen, produced from renewable electricity.
