Wind Energy and Hydrogen Integration
Task 24 of the Hydrogen Implementing Agreement
Wind energy can become more reliable when wind farms are coupled to energy storage systems. This will support integrating the growing shares of wind energy in the total electricity generation capacity. Furthermore, wind farms can become multipurpose, decentralised producers of both electricity and hydrogen fuel when the automotive industry enters mass production of hydrogen-powered vehicles.
Task 24 consisted of four Subtasks:
The task “Wind Energy and Hydrogen Integration” started in April 2007 and had 19 members and 6 contributors. They came from 11 countries and represented a broad range of knowledge in electrolyser manufacturing, wind-hydrogen system development and grid integration. Work has continued up to the end of 2010.You can find more details about Task 24 on:
Task 24 was part of the Hydrogen Implementing Agreement (HIA). The HIA was established by the International Energy Agency in 1977 to pursue collaborative hydrogen research and development and information exchange among its member countries.You can find more information on the Hydrogen Implementing Agreement under:
