PROJECT VANGUARD: Refuelling fleet vehicles with Green hydrogen

Storengy UK are proud to be leading Vanguard, ensuring project delivery, operations and maintenance of the 1st green H2 station in North West of UK. Vanguard will provide a central hydrogen fuelling station for Local Authority (Cheshire East Council) and Storengy UK fleet vehicles.

This is Storengy UK’s 1st Green Hydrogen project under its commitment to be a leading sustainable energy storage and solutions provider.

 

Vanguard will produce hydrogen by alkaline electrolysis, powered by renewable electricity from solar panels and splitting rainwater to produce Green Hydrogen. This will be stored onsite at the refuelling station.

The central refuelling station will dispense hydrogen to “dual-fuel” refuse trucks and a Storengy UK vehicle.

Benefits

  • Innovative step towards Cheshire East Council’s target of net-zero by 2025
  • Reduction in CO2 emissions, increased engine efficiency
  • Reduce diesel use by more than 10,000 litres per year
  • 1st project to claim renewable transport fuel certificates for H­2 in the UK
  • Air quality benefits for local community - trucks are in use 5 days per week

 

Q

We pride ourselves in being part of the energy transition that harnesses a fresh approach to deliver and store energy sources in the UK and worldwide. We are delighted to unveil this scheme in partnership with Cheshire East Council, the first of its kind in the United Kingdom.

The Future of Energy Storage

At our Stublach site we already store around 4,400 TWh of energy in the form of natural gas. This is 1000 times more energy than all the electricity battery capacity in the country. To decarbonise this storage our aim is to store hydrogen in the same cost effective and proven means. We are working with local partners and the UK Government to develop salt cavern hydrogen storage on our site. In project HySecure we have developed the technology required to store hydrogen and we are now looking to start debrining our first hydrogen cavern.

Project Centurion - Large scale Hydrogen production transportation and Storage

The vision for Project Centurion is to demonstrate a 100MW P2G energy storage system which can produce low carbon hydrogen for heat, decarbonisation of industry, and transport fuel. Once successfully demonstrated, such systems can make a significant contribution to the decarbonisation of the electricity and gas networks, and by coupling these two networks together provide energy storage, allowing the UK energy system to accommodate increasing amounts of renewable energy, reducing curtailment and constraints

Centurion has been identified by the World Energy Council as a blueprint for large scale energy storage solution. With a storage capacity of 40,000 MWh for a single salt cavern, a thousand times more than what the largest UK battery can store, the potential to address the flexibility requirement of the growing share of renewable energy on the grid is huge. Capital costs for the technology are competitive too, at about 1/100th of the cost of a battery storage.”

Q

Power to gas energy storage is key to decarbonise European energy systems. We firmly believe hydrogen is a promising solution and a project like Centurion will allow us to identify the conditions under which such a project could be developed in the future.
