We discussed hydrogen generation techniques in our 2014 guest blog by Matt Stern. Since that time, the world has continued its fascination with this element, and recent developments show some interesting progress. 

 

Our present intern Karley Hildin provides an update:

 

One really interesting example is a project taking place in Orkney, an island chain in the Northern Isles of Scotland (Figure 1).  Orkney has been leading the way in energy innovation since its first commercial wind turbine was built in 1951.  Since then, the islands have accumulated 700 wind and 350 solar generators.  Their renewable energy generation has been so successful that it exceeds Orkney’s electricity demand and now they are looking at energy export.

 

So, what is their solution to an overabundance of electricity? Actual transportable sustainable hydrogen production.
