Smart integration of renewable energy
ARTIE Innovation Award for FREQCON
At the 3rd Hydrogen Day & ARTIE Expert Congress, which took place on 07 July 2021 in Osterholz-Scharmbeck, the ARTIE Innovation Award was also presented to hydrogen pioneers in Northeast Lower Saxony. The award was given to companies that have advanced the development of a hydrogen economy in the region at a very early stage. We are award winners! The background to the award is that we are planning a demonstration plant at the company’s site in Rethem consisting of an electrolyzer with a peak output of 1 MW in stand-alone operation and an annual production of 60,000 kilograms of hydrogen. This pilot plant will be powered exclusively by electricity from renewable energy generators (wind turbine, photovoltaic plant and battery storage). In addition, charging stations for vehicles with hydrogen or electric drive will be created. We want to demonstrate that we can ensure a reliable power supply to the electrolyzer with our high-performance hybrid converter solutions by directly connecting renewable energy sources.
