#Siemens launches ammonia storage demo #windpower #renewables

The £1.5 million (€1.7 billion) project is being carried out in partnership with the UK’s Science and Technology Council, the University of Oxford and Cardiff University. It works by using surplus renewable energy to power water electrolysis, producing hydrogen, and also extract nitrogen from the air. Combining the two gases produces ammonia (NH3 ). Ammonia is typically used in farming as a fertiliser, however it is traditionally a carbon-intensive process to produce. Siemens, and its partners, said this new process is carbon free. Ammonia can also be used as a fuel for gas turbines, according to Siemens. It can therefore act as a long-term and transportable energy storage solution. "Using renewable electricity to make ammonia for fertiliser manufacturing has the potential to save more than 40 million tonnes of CO2 each year in Europe alone, and over 360 million tonnes wor...
