Green Hydrogen Production Challenges & Solutions
Hydrogen, mainly green hydrogen, has emerged as a beacon of hope in the transition toward cleaner energy. Hydrogen, produced through renewable energy sources and emitting no greenhouse gases during combustion, promises to revolutionize the energy landscape. However, the road to large-scale green hydrogen production is fraught with challenges. This blog will explore these challenges and discuss how Rishabh Engineering can envision solutions to overcome them.
Green Hydrogen Production Challenges
- Transporting and Storing Green Hydrogen: Beyond production, the transportation and storage of green hydrogen represent a pressing challenge for the industry. Efficient transportation methods and safe storage solutions are essential prerequisites for the large-scale adoption of green Hydrogen. Much hydrogen transportation relies on trucks due to a lack of dedicated pipeline infrastructure. To transport hydrogen via trucks, we need to highly compress it or keep it in an icy liquid state, which can be resource intensive. While pipelines are increasingly emerging as a transportation solution, there is room for improvement in reducing costs, enhancing efficiency, and minimizing leakage incidents. Hydrogen storage also necessitates creative solutions. Storing significant quantities of hydrogen in salt caverns is a reliable method that ensures high-pressure storage. However, it would require keeping hydrogen in liquid form, which may remain the most cost-effective option for smaller hydrogen production facilities.
- Innovation in Hydrogen Production Technologies: While hydrogen production is not a novel concept, the technologies used today vastly differ from those used in the past. To achieve efficient, large-scale green hydrogen production, we must innovate.
- Delivering Hydrogen to Remote Communities: Remote communities often lack access to traditional energy grids, making it challenging to provide energy solutions. There’s a need to explore innovative methods to deliver green hydrogen to these communities efficiently. Hydrogen can be vital in reducing emissions and providing reliable energy solutions, whether for mining operations or rural microgrids.
While we have discussed the green hydrogen challenges with production, let’s now discuss some solutions that a multidisciplinary engineering company can offer.
