Power-to-Gas

Compressor Solutions for Power-to-Gas Applications

The need for carbon emission reduction is forcing the industry to increase energy production from renewable sources. The increased share of energy delivered from not predictable sources such as solar and wind energy, forces the industry to increase capacity of energy storages. Energy stored in hydrogen produced from wind and solar power is one of the preferred choices of the industry. Stored hydrogen can be converted to electricity using fuel cells. Burckhardt Compression offers a variety of oil-free hydrogen compression solutions for high-pressure energy storages, hydrogen pipeline feed and liquefaction.
