Stavy, Michael, Is Hydrogen Energy Storage Ready for Prime Time on the European Grid? , WindEurope 2019 Conference,  2-4 April, Bilbao, Spain.

Abstract–  A bulk energy storage plant can be used on the European electric grid for ancillary services, daily, weekly or seasonal wind energy storage.

The goal of this WindEurope-2019 paper is to determine whether hydrogen energy storage is ready for prime time on the European grid.

To determine this, the author developed a hydrogen storage plant (HSP) levelized cost of storage (LCOS) Algorithm. The algorithm is used for sensitivity analysis.

This paper discusses the hydrogen storage (HS) technology, focusing on the three phases of all HSP; one, the production of the hydrogen, two, the storage of the hydrogen, three, the use of the stored hydrogen as the fuel to generate electricity.

Stavy, Michael, Is Hydrogen Energy Storage Ready for Prime Time on the North American Grid? , WindPower Conference 2019,  20-23 May, Houston, TX.

ABSTRACT–A bulk electric energy storage plant can be used on the North American electric grid for the daily, weekly or seasonal storage of wind electricity (energy) and/or to provide ancillary services. The goal of this paper is to determine whether hydrogen (H2) energy storage is ready for prime time on the North American grid.
