Hydrogenics Secures Utility-Scale Energy Storage Project

Hydrogenics, an Ontario-based fuel cell equipment manufacturer, inked a deal with E.ON, Germany‘s largest investor-owned electric utility, to install a 1 megawatt “power-to-gas” energy storage system in Hamburg, Germany.

The energy storage system will produce hydrogen using excess power generated from renewable energy, primarily wind power. The Hydrogenics‘ system will include the world’s largest proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer stack. Currently, the fuel cell installation at the SolVin plant in Antwerp, Belgium boasts the world’s largest PEM stack.
