EGAT Learning Center & microgrid for green hydrogen education
The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) Learning Center functions as an education and research hub and was designed to provide insights about the use of renewable energy to the public, as well as prepare businesses for the country’s future carbon-neutral energy targets. Based in Bangkok, the EGAT Learning Center has a hydrogen energy system featuring 10 AEM Electrolysers, 2 Dryers, and a water tank module, all integrated in an indoor cabinet by our partner H2 Core Systems. It also has 2.5 kg of H2 storage capacity and three fuel cells with a total capacity of 12kW.
In the daytime, excess power from solar PV is used to produce 100% green hydrogen through AEM Electrolysis. During the nighttime, the three hydrogen fuel cells power the EGAT energy efficient house using the stored hydrogen. This green hydrogen micro-grid project by EGAT and Enapter aims to be a role model for the whole nation, and beyond. Thailand, with its abundant sun and many islands, can become a lighthouse nation for green hydrogen microgrids eliminating diesel use. Following the successful establishment of this project, the aim is to deploy AEM technology for decentralised green H2 production across Thailand, and everywhere else where such needs arise.
