China Huadian launched a renewable power-to-gas and large-scale hydrogen storage project that marks the first-of-this-kind in China. The project covers a big part of the hydrogen infrastructure by focusing on water electrolysis hydrogen production, solid state hydrogen storage, liquid state hydrogen storage and fuel cells. The project will utilize hydropower from Huadian’s Luding hydropower dam.
Last week the project completed its first trial run and produced the first tank with hydrogen. The hydrogen in the tank reached 99.99% pure hydrogen, which meets the requirements of hydrogen fuel cells.
