“What hydrogen can contribute to energy storage”

Die Welt

The HanseWerk facility can produce up to 290 cubic meters of hydrogen per hour. Hydrogen could play a key role in the energy supply of the future. As a storage medium, hydrogen could help stabilise the fluctuating production of electricity from wind and solar power plants, the article says.
