HYDROGEN FROM RENEWABLES STORED IN NATURAL GAS.

November 28, 2011 – Vol.16 No.37 HYDROGEN FROM RENEWABLES STORED IN NATURAL GAS. by Bruce Mulliken, Green Energy News I’ve been asked more than once,”What good are solar and wind energy if they only provide power part of the day? What about energy storage?” I usually answer briefly, “Those are issues. They’re being worked on. In green energy, storage is the next big thing. Lots of companies are looking for an answer.” Here in the U.S. there are any number battery energy storage systems already in place, connected to renewables too. But none of them are large enough to store all the power generated from a solar or wind plant. Batteries store electricity at a high cost. There will have to be a significant battery technology breakthrough, or some cleverness in battery design, for costs to drop dramatically. Low cost is necessary to make really large, grid-scale battery storag...
