Hydrogenics gets energy storage contract for wind-hydrogen project in Germany
Oct 12, 2011 - Canadian fuel cell and hydrogen generation firm Hydrogenics Corp (NASDAQ:HYGS) today said it would deliver an energy storage solution for a wind-hydrogen installation in Herten city, western Germany.
The company will supply one hydrogen generation unit and one 50-kW fuel cell power system to the city in 2012.
The hydrogen energy storage system allows for extra wind power to be stored for use when there is no wind. Thus, the solution enhances the stability and reliability of power supply.
