PE Live: Hydrogen storage to boost offshore wind

The ability to store and transport energy as hydrogen means that far more locations in the North Sea and elsewhere become viable for wind generation

The development of offshore hydrogen production could hold the key to a substantial expansion of power generation in the North Sea while providing greater stability for power prices, panellists agreed on a recent PE Live webcast. The amount of electricity that can be generated by offshore turbines in the North Sea would reach a natural limit while using deployed technology. Many of the sites that see high levels of wind, have short transmission distances to the coast and are located in shallow water have already been taken. And, in the absence of viable storage, increasing the number of turbines could lead to greater levels of downtime. “A lot of offshore wind is already installed in the N
