To curb carbon dioxide emission and to cope with the crisis over fossil fuel supply, there is a pressing universal need to examine our fuel policy, and determine a new fuel which emits either zero or insignificant levels of exhaust gases. Using hydrogen as a transport fuel is a vision of future for many.
A new technology roadmap on Carbon Capture and Storage in Industrial Applications shows that carbon capture and storage (CCS) has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions from industrial applications by 4 gigatonnes in 2050.
MNRE (Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Govt of India) has sponsored a R&D project to ERDA. As part of this project, a 2 x 5 kW wind turbine is installed and integrated with water electrolyser. Complete demonstration system is expected to be ready soon. This demonstration project is undertaken to validate the feasibility of this concept.
