Dynamic grid load management with electrolysis
Lancium Texas Houston, a US client of certified partner H2 Core Systems, are using a system featuring Enapter’s AEM Electrolysers to help achieve grid stability, assisting in the prevention of major power outages and grid damage. The turnkey green hydrogen production system is integrated into the client’s variable load-management system, producing green hydrogen from fluctuating renewable electricity that can also destabilise the grid.
When too much electrical energy is in the grid, the flexible AEM Electrolysis workload is increased to create more hydrogen, and decreased when too little energy is present. This on-demand ramp-up and ramp-down of production within seconds supports both grid stability and the production of cheap, regenerative green hydrogen. After multiple rounds of testing, next steps are planned to expand the system to a multi-megawatt level, with hydrogen sold to industry and mobility offtakers.
