Project summary description:
This project aims to fill a research gap in the production of hydrogen from renewable energy (RE) sources, by focusing on the transition from AC to fully DC microgrids for green hydrogen production.

  • This project will propose an efficient, first-of-a-kind fully DC microgrid for green hydrogen production, using electrolysers, solar photovoltaic (PV) and battery energy storage systems.
  • This project is the first step towards the fully DC “power to gas – gas to power” systems with high efficiency.
