Project summary description:
The imminent advent of large-scale green hydrogen production raises the central question of which of the two options, transporting green molecules, or transporting green electrons, is the most cost-effective one. This project aims to answer this question by determining the optimal integrated transmission and storage infrastructure solution for large-scale production of green hydrogen. Towards this aim, the work proposes an investment and operational assessment framework of integrated electricity-gas-hydrogen production, transmission, and storage technologies.
