Green hydrogen

Renewable hydrogen, also known as green hydrogen, is generated by electrolysis of water using electricity from renewable sources. This process emits no CO2 and transforms water into hydrogen gas molecules and oxygen, using electricity produced from renewable sources. The advantage of this production chain is that surplus renewable energy can be used to generate hydrogen, which can be stored for use at the appropriate time.

The line of research promoted by the TIDOP Research Group focuses on analysing the overall process of underground storage of green hydrogen and its subsequent use. Specifically, the following objectives are pursued:

  • Application of renewable H2 to the need for daily, weekly and seasonal energy storage, favouring energy security, availability and flexibility.
  • H2 storage as an energy vector.
  • Exploration of underground H2 storage techniques.
  • Synthesis of synthetic fuel and NH3 from H2.
  • H2 consumption in energy communities and transport.
