Harnessing Renewable Hydrogen for Long Term Energy Storage

May 12, 2021

A reliable and affordable energy system is essential to the operation of nearly every function of the economy. One of the biggest challenges facing grid operators is to find cost effective ways to balance renewable energy production with demand. While batteries provide some flexibility, the ability to store large quantities of low-cost energy over long periods of time is essential to fill seasonal gaps and to address the prevalence of renewable energy droughts. Integrating renewable hydrogen into system design will address these holes.

Watch this Renewable Gas 360 webinar recording to hear researchers from Caltech:

  • Discuss the role of long duration storage in supporting grid reliability and affordability
  • Present their industry-leading research on the prevalence of renewable energy droughts and their potential impact on renewable energy dependent grids
  • Describe strategies to mitigate gaps in renewable power generation and weather related events
  • Discuss policies and programs that grid operators and policy makers can implement to ensure a more reliable and resilient renewable power system
