Economic feasibility of green hydrogen in providing flexibility to medium-voltage distribution grids in the presence of local-heat systems

The recent strong increase in the penetration of renewable energy sources (RESs) in medium-voltage distribution grids (MVDNs) has raised the need for congestion management in such grids, as they were not designed for this new condition. This paper examines to what extent producing green hydrogen through electrolyzers can profitably contribute to congestion alleviation in MVDNs […]

International competitiveness of low-carbon hydrogen supply to the Northwest European market

This paper analyses which sources of low-carbon hydrogen for the Northwest European market are most competitive, taking into account costs of local production, conversion and transport. Production costs of electrolysis are strongly affected by local renewable electricity costs and capacity factors. Transport costs are the lowest by pipelines for distances under 10,000 km, with costs […]

Value of power-to-gas as a flexibility option in integrated electricity and hydrogen markets

This paper analyzes the economic potential of Power-to-Gas (PtG) as a source of flexibility in electricity markets with both high shares of renewables and high external demand for hydrogen. The contribution of this paper is that it develops and applies a short-term (hourly) partial equilibrium model of integrated electricity and hydrogen markets, including markets for […]

Levelized costs of lowcarbon hydrogen production technologies

The levelized costs of hydrogen production consist of several components, including investment and operational costs, input costs for energy, water, biomass and oxygen as well as costs of carbon. The breakdown of these cost components for the LCOH of the four different technologies in the base case are discussed and the four technologies will be compared. […]

Economic Value of Power-to-Hydrogen Conversion System in Flexibility of Medium-Voltage Distribution Network (MV-DN)

This study analysed the potential role of P2G systems to solve congestion issues. The main conclusions from this research were: Electrolyzers are able to play positive role in reducing congestion in the MV-DV in case of receiving incentives. From system point of view, dynamic electricity prices as incentives have positive influence on improving net operation revenue. Developing of electrolyzer in medium-voltage distribution grid for […]

Spatial-economic analysis of low carbon hydrogen supply to the European market

This study analysed low carbon hydrogen supply alternatives to the European market. The key results were the following: Production of hydrogen using renewable electricity is most competitive in Morocco Production of hydrogen using renewable electricity is not competitive compared to SMR with CCS production For larger distances, transport as ammonia is most competitive for that […]
