The Energy Institute will be hosting a free online evening lecture entitled ‘Energy storage and fuel security’ this Thursday, 9th June. Dr Graham Cooley, Chief Executive Officer of ITM Power will be presenting the lecture which will explore the concepts underlying energy storage and fuel security and outline both the industry needs and the technologies available. The presentation will cover the use of water electrolysis to provide a way to convert excess power from intermittent renewables and store it as hydrogen.
ITM Power’s HFuel product can be used as a flexible load which can be operated by power companies to absorb excess power, and to manage the grid so that we would never have to cease renewable energy production. The market for the hydrogen produced from renewable electricity is potentially huge. It is the market for a zero carbon footprint fuel, and provides fuel security.
The online facility enables viewers to see the presentation onscreen whilst hearing the speaker at the same time. There is also the opportunity to pose questions to the speaker during the interactive session.
