Yes. However, Enapter specializes on the AEM electrolyser and auxiliary equipment related to the hydrogen production. Enapter does not offer turnkey solutions with tanks, fuel cells, and other equipment preassembled on site. The good news is, our partners do and you can find them here.

The Enapter EMS, can provide overview and control of a complete hydrogen production, storage and usage system, including third-party fuel cells and other sensors/inputs/outputs.

Doing rough calculations and assuming 4 months of summer with a total exposure of 2 MWh, that would result in about 500kWh per month and about 16,6kWh per day. Each Enapter electrolyser module could run about 7 h a day, using 2,4kW each and generating 3,5 Nm³ of hydrogen gas daily (~300g).

Over the summer period, an energy content of roughly 1200 kWh could be accumulated.

Enapter’s electrolysers produce hydrogen at 35 barg, which is the maximum storage pressure which could be achieved without a compressor. A steel tank or an array of bottles with an internal volume of 12m³ to hold the 35kg would then be sufficient. A standard fuel cell for stationary applications can turn the hydrogen back into electricity.

Typical fuel cells have an electrical efficiency of around 50%. If the generated heat could be used as well, co-generation fuel cells can reach efficiencies of up to 90%.
