Hydrogenics has agreed to provide one HySTAT30 hydrogen generation unit and a HyPM 50kW fuel cell power system, to the City of Herten in next year.

Hydrogenics said by incorporating a hydrogen energy storage system, excess wind power can be stored and redeployed when the wind is not blowing.

From storage, the energy will be redeployed through fuel cells as electricity to the grid, or be used to fuel zero carbon emission vehicles and other devices such as industrial equipment.

Hydrogenics president and CEO Daryl Wilson said electrolyzing water into hydrogen using excess intermittent renewable energy is the optimal clean pathway to smart grid stabilization and energy storage capacity.

Hydrogenics is a developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and fuel cell products.
