Description

Presentation given at ISCID about fuel cell technology and the hydrogen economy.

Presentation at: Institut Supérieur de Commerce International Dunkerque, France March 2009

What do we use energy for? Where do we get our energy from today? What is ‘renewable’ energy and how is it different from ‘non-renewable’ energy?

Hydrogen & Fuel Cells : Brief Introduction First demonstrated by Welsh scientist Sir William Robert Grove in February 1839.

PURE Energy Centre, Baltasound, Unst •The PURE Energy Centre is a venture on the northernost Shetland Island of Unst. Established originally as a community venture, the project has since grown into a world-leading consultancy on clean hydrogen. •Island community •Highest Oil Prices in UK •„Energy Isolation‟ – North Sea Oil currently generates revenue. •Lack of “highly skilled” jobs •Problems retaining young people on the island •Low wages, hard to generate wealth, limited opportunities Two Proven Wind Turbines Produce Renewable Power This feeds an electrolyser which produces hydrogen. This hydrogen can be stored, for later use. An onsite hydrogen fuel cell provides heat and power. A small fuel cell vehicle can be refuelled using H2

Hydrogen Office, Methil Energy efficiency •Increased insulation •Increased efficient glazing to minimise heat loss and unwanted heat gain •Natural ventilation to remove the need for air conditioning •A layout that maximises natural daylight to minimise the need for artificial lighting •Efficient lighting and control systems •A ground source heat pump, also recovering waste heat from a fuel cell and electrolysis unit, to provide most of the heating and hot water for the building

Environmental Energy Technology Centre The main criteria for the development of EETC are: •Iconic building •Use of innovative technology •„Zero carbon building‟ •Iconic Renewable Hydrogen System •Support enterprising and innovation of products •Exploit opportunities arising from low carbon economy

Woking Park CHP Woking Park Leisure Centre Uses a Fuel Cell To Provide Heat & Power In ‘traditional’ CCGT Gas Plant, the heat produced as a by-product of electricity production would be wasted!

Woking Park CHP Fuel Cell CHP ‘Bolted on to existing multi-storey car-park’ Supplies heat and power to neighbouring hotel. Savings in ‘plant room’ allowed them to add a number of additional rooms.
