Battery storage is short-term storage with fast response times, whereas the H2 system (electrolyzer, H2 storage, fuel point) can store large amounts of electricity over long periods of time.
The vision being pursued with the demonstration plant is a system of many such self-sufficient plants that are nevertheless interconnected and can operate as a cluster when needed. If the energy sources of the individual cells differ (e.g. wind, solar, biogas), the systems can support each other in energy storage and supply.
The demonstration system will be used to study performance parameters, reliability, resilience, longevity and economics, in addition to consumption and yield profiles.
