Disruptive technology-II: How does hydrogen plug the gap?
Nov 03: While the use of hydrogen in automobiles is already a successful technology, how will hydrogen be used in large scale power generation? 8The website carries here a document that tracks how hydrogen based power plants can be built using renewable energy as the base. 8Renewable energy will produce hydrogen which is then stored and used to produce electricity using modified combined cycle gas generators 8The big problem with renewal energy is its intermittent nature and storing electricity is a challenge in the present system. Batteries have limitations and are not environment friendly. Hydrogen can be used to store excess electricity produced. 8Road delivery of hydrogen for local usage is also becoming a viable technology. 8The fact that research agencies are taking this technological option seriously means that the technology does pack in a lot of punch Click on Reports for more
