(power generation renewable/transmission grid balancing/distribution smart grid/storage)
Hydrogen is the best way to store energy due to its gas form: it is possible to dimension the storage vessel as needed (volume, pressure etc); there is no loss due to self-discharge as in traditional battery based systems.
The possibility of the electrolysers to produce hydrogen chasing the production profile of the Renewable Energy Sources (RES) allows a perfect matching of these devices without any loss of energy.
Furthermore electrolysers, acting as big capacitors, can tune the phase of the grid avoiding costs for energy lost, due to the phase displacement and obtaining worthwhile hydrogen as byproduct!
The flexibility of the hydrogen based systems configuration allows to apply this technology both in small/medium applications (house, small refueling station; light mobility, small factories, etc) and in large applications (big factories, large refueling stations, bus, cars etc.).
This flexibility can result in a variety of power plants (small/medium/large) distributed all along the territory which can act as smart grid energy distributors.
CTS H2 as solution provider is able to evaluate, design and propose the best hydrogen based solution in a customized way, realizing turnkey complete systems.
(refining, chemicals, agriculture, methanol, ammonia)
Hydrogen is used to process crude oil into refined fuels, such as gasoline and diesel, and for removing contaminants, such as sulphur, from these fuels. Approximately 75% of hydrogen currently consumed worldwide by oil refineries is supplied by large hydrogen plants that generate hydrogen from natural gas or other hydrocarbon fuels (reforming).
It has been observed that hydrogen water has a significant effect on the growth of some kind of plants. Therefore, in the future, hydrogen water may be attractively used to irrigate crops, promoting plant growth, and reducing the use of chemical fertilizers. Along with carbon and oxygen, hydrogen is one of the main non-mineral nutrients that is vital to plant growth and development. Hydrogen additionally plays an important part during the photosynthesis process by binding with carbon dioxide (CO2) to produce all the essential sugars a plant needs to grow.
Hydrogen is used in a range of other industries, including chemical production (e.g. methanol, ammonia, etc.), metal refining, food processing and electronics manufacturing. Hydrogen is either delivered to customers in these industries as compressed gas or as liquid form, or generated on-site from natural gas reforming. There is a gradual shift towards on-site generation to replace delivered compressed gas or liquid form, largely based on the lower cost of new on-site hydrogen generation technologies when compared to delivered hydrogen.
The hydrogen production from reforming is cost-effective only on large plants with the drawback of a complicated purification system and of pollutant emissions (above all CO2). Electrolysis process supply high purity hydrogen without, or with light purification system (depending from the required purity grade), 100% pollutant emissions free.
CTS H2 systems can be dimensioned from kW till MW or multi MW scale, in order to match the customer industry need.
(buildings, commercial, offices, residential, data center,GSM ups)
The system for communities is based on CTSH2 hydrogen backup system, and it presents a powerful opportunity to provide reliable, efficient and affordable site-generated electricity without the limitations of other power production and distribution systems. This system allows to store the excess of the electrical energy from the Renewable Energy Source (RES) otherwise lost and to use when the RES doesn’t produce or when a surplus of energy is required. The system may also be coupled to existing PV panels or wind turbines for the energy independence from the grid.
CTS H2 proposes complete plug and play hydrogen based energy storage solutions comprising if required even the Renewable Energy Source (RES).
(bikes & scooters, handling, automotive, bus, trains, vessel, drones..)
The Hydrogen Refueling Station HRS from CTSH2 allows to refuel Fuel Cells Electrical Vehicles (FCEV) in a way similar to the other combustion engine cars. The possibility to couple our electrolysers with local Renewable Energy Sources (RES) taking advantage of the excess of energy otherwise lost, and use of light filtered water (even rain water) permits to generate green hydrogen to be used to fuel FCEV such as cars, buses, trains, forklift, bikes, scooters and transportation drones. The byproducts coming from hydrogen combinate with oxygen present in the air into the Fuel Cell is pure water.
CTS H2 offers complete turnkey systems to cover the different need of the market by the refueling point of view but is bale to project and realize complete FC system to be set on the vehicles.
