Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO139: Standards for grid integration of hydrogen infrastructure

Anna Heuschman, Research Associate, Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems IWES


The European Union (EU) Hydrogen Strategy represents a comprehensive initiative devised by the European Commission with the aim of advancing the production, distribution, and utilization of hydrogen as a clean, low-carbon energy source across Europe. A pivotal facet of this strategy revolves around the seamless integration of hydrogen infrastructure with the existing electricity grid. This integration is essential for facilitating the production and dissemination of renewable hydrogen. The harmonization of the electricity grid with the hydrogen infrastructure emerges as a vital pillar within the EU Hydrogen Strategy. This synergy lays the foundation for the sustainable generation of low-carbon hydrogen from renewable resources such as wind and solar energy. Nonetheless, it necessitates meticulous power quality management to guarantee the safe and efficient operation of the electricity grid. The generation of 'green' hydrogen, achieved through climate-neutral techniques like electrolysis, stands as a critical element in the cross-sectoral integration and the establishment of a global energy system that leans heavily on renewable sources. The establishment of additional standards and grid codes becomes imperative in overseeing the impact of various technologies, including electrolysers, fuel cells, battery storage systems, and other storage methods, on the grid's stability and performance. In the future, it's crucial that electrolysers operate seamlessly within the grid while also effectively synchronizing with renewable energy sources, in this abstract focusing on wind energy sources.
