The California Power Fee (CEC), Expertise & Funding Options LLC (TIS) and Cleantech San Diego member GKN Hydrogen introduced that GKN Hydrogen’s HY2MEDI vitality storage system (ESS) is operational and has been built-in into the Circle Inexperienced Technical Park close to Adelanto on the former Meadowbrook Dairy.

 

GKN Hydrogen’s HY2MEDI vitality storage system makes use of steel hydride hydrogen storage to displace a propane generator and utilizing off grid photo voltaic electrical energy will energy the positioning to help the renewable vitality expertise growth actions. The set up will obtain $1.77 million {dollars} of funding from The California Power Fee’s Electrical Program Funding Cost (EPIC) program that invests in scientific and technological analysis to speed up the transformation of the electrical energy sector to satisfy the state’s vitality and local weather objectives.

 

The efficiency of the HY2MEDI set up might be evaluated over a spread of environmental and operational circumstances on the excessive desert website close to dry lakebed Lake El Mirage. The HY2MEDI operates autonomously to regulate the microgrid, shops obtainable photo voltaic electrical energy and delivers electrical energy as wanted to help the expertise growth actions on the Technical Park.

 

“This mission brings collectively a renewable microgrid at a website that’s being repurposed, a regional mission and biogas expertise developer and a clear vitality expertise developer to implement options that may assist decarbonize the ability grid” stated Janice Lin, the Founder and President of the Inexperienced Hydrogen Coalition. “This California Power Fee (CEC) funded mission demonstrates the applied sciences that may allow microgrids to function autonomously, be used to stability the long run electrical energy grid, and assist decarbonize our financial system.”

 

“This HY2MEDI mission helps us exhibit the potential in repurposing the previous Meadowbrook Dairy as a renewable expertise growth website” stated Kevin Sutton, CEO and proprietor of Circle Inexperienced, Inc., the mission developer of a brand new composting and inexperienced gasoline manufacturing facility. “The Circle Inexperienced Technical Park will assist develop and exhibit the applied sciences that may allow microgrids to function autonomously, be used to stability the long run electrical energy grid, and assist decarbonize our financial system.”

 

Paul Prepare dinner, First District Supervisor, San Bernardino Nation said “The HY2MEDI vitality storage system will permit the storage and on-demand supply of unpolluted vitality, whatever the climate or time of day. I’m proud to see San Bernardino County companies proceed to paved the way in producing and storing clear renewable vitality.”

 

Moh Ibrahim, Developer at Expertise & Funding Options LLC (TIS) stated, “We’re honored to be the recipient of a CEC EPIC Award for this mission to validate and exhibit an vitality storage system (ESS) utilizing steel hydride hydrogen storage. This mission will exhibit the containerized HY2MEDI vitality storage system can autonomously management microgrids and retailer obtainable photo voltaic electrical energy to ship electrical energy when wanted and upon demand to help the renewable expertise growth at this website.”

 

“This Mojave Desert location offers us the chance to validate the efficiency of GKN Hydrogen’s HY2MEDI vitality storage system when uncovered to environmental extremes together with sizzling summer season temperatures,” stated Gottfried Rier, Chief Expertise Officer at GKN Hydrogen. “The absolutely containerized and straightforward to deploy HY2MEDI demonstrates its flexibility to generate and retailer hydrogen for lengthy length vitality storage functions and helps to buffer vitality from intermittent renewables, corresponding to photo voltaic, to allow microgrids to function dependable and resiliently whereas using renewable electrical energy.”
