The market for batteries is growing as new use cases develop and synergies are found with other technologies. At the same time, there are growing expectations for hydrogen to help decarbonize heat and transport applications, and interest in producing hydrogen from electrolysis powered by clean electricity is also growing. The combination of batteries with intermittent renewables (in particular solar) may be an important technology option for powering such green hydrogen production facilities.
The session will focus on addressing the following questions:
• Why might batteries be a useful addition to green hydrogen production systems?
• Does pairing batteries with an electrolyzer lead to lower cost of green hydrogen?
• What other benefits could adding a battery to the system bring?
