Energy Storage And Future Mobility
ABO Wind's department of Future Energy works on solutions for the storage of renewable energies. One approach is to create an integrated system including a wind farm, a biogas plant, and an electrolyzer in order to store excess wind energy as hydrogen and use all the residues including carbon dioxide in a closed circuit system.
Hydrogen can be stored, fed into the natural gas grid, or used for mobility. That's why another focus is the mobility of the future, including electric mobility and hydrogen as a fuel. For example we are working on developing a new hydrogen filling station for fuel cell cars.Another focus of the department is "power to gas storage" because this technology has proven to be diverse, efficient and environmentally friendly. So-called "green" hydrogen (from renewable energy sources) can propel vehicles, be used as a raw material by local industries, be converted into heat and electricity or stored in pressure accumulators and converted back into electrical energy when required. When hydrogen and oxygen react to form water, the released chemical energy can be converted into electrical energy by gas turbines or fuel cells. Hydrogen can be fed into the gas grid. Today the percentage of hydrogen in the natural gas grid can reach up to five percent.
