The best use of green electricity is to satisfy demand in the electricity grid, but when supply outstrips demand what happens to the potential surplus? If there is no market for it, that potential is currently wasted. This is particularly poignant in the case of wind energy, which has an almost negligible marginal cost. No sane person would make hydrogen from 20p per unit electricity, but making it from energy that would otherwise be lost is a different game. As UK renewables capacity increases, so do the opportunities to divert excess generation into producing and selling green road fuel. Decoupling energy production from its eventual use also helps in grid balancing – increasing the efficiency (including cost) of the overall energy system.
