Report: Horizon Power Denham Hydrogen Demonstration Lessons Learnt 1 & 2 (PDF 911KB)
This is the first lessons learnt report covering milestones one and two of the project. The report explains the technical viability of incorporating renewable hydrogen power systems into a microgrid.
The purpose of the Project is to demonstrate the technical viability of incorporating renewable hydrogen power systems into a microgrid.
The Project is integrating hydrogen with solar and diesel and to demonstrate the ability to provide firm capacity from renewable energy sources equivalent to the average load of 100 residential houses in Denham, Western Australia (nominally 526 MWh per year, with 220 MWh per year from Hydrogen) (the Project).
The high‐level objectives of the project include:
- Improvement in technology readiness and commercial readiness of renewable hydrogen, by developing the technical ability to duplicate and decarbonise other remote micro‐grids if economically appropriate, and
- Increased skills, capacity and knowledge relevant to hydrogen energy technologies.
