Abstract

One of the current main challenges in green-power storage and smart grids is the lack of effective solutions for accommodating the unbalance between renewable energy sources - offering intermittent electricity supply - and a variable electricity demand. Integrating intermittent renewable energy sources by safe and cost-effective energy storage systems is today achievable. Coupled with electrolizers, high-capacity solid-state storage of green-hydrogen is practicable to sustain integration, monitoring and control of large quantity of GWh from renewable generation. The 23.9 MLN Euros INGRID European large demonstrative project started in July 2012 combines magnesium-based material solid-state hydrogen storage systems with advanced ICT technologies to intelligently interconnect miscellaneous energy networks (i.e. electricity and gas) and safely delivering green-hydrogen to various existing or forthcoming markets. One solution INGRID project addresses is an off-grid utility to store renewable electricity captured from wind sources to refill full-battery electric cars.
