Solar hydrogen filling station opens in Freiburg, Germany

Sponsored by the Ministry of the Environment Baden-Württemberg , the station will serve as a demonstration platform, as well as marking a milestone in the hydrogen filling station network planned in the state. The roof of the hydrogen filling station and a neighbouring building, has seen the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays, which are used to power the electrolysis creating the hydrogen. The station consists of a 30 bare electrolyser, a mechanical compressor for hydrogen compression to 700 bar, puffer storage at two different pressure levels and pumps for dispensing the hydrogen. It can be used to tank cars, buses and bikes powered by fuel cells. It takes on average around 3 minutes to tank a vehicle, which can then drive more than 400 km on the fuel, Fraunhofer says. A further advantage is that hydrogen can be used to stabilise intermittencies in the grid fr...
