100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

Shell Global Solutions International B.V. (Shell) and Wison Engineering Ltd. (Wison) announced their agreement to jointly develop a new, low-cost “hybrid” gasification technology demonstration plant in China, to collaborate in the technology’s future design and marketing, and to extend future cooperation to other coal gasification technologies.

This co-operation plays on Shell’s expertise in gasification and energy technologies, as well as Wison’s strong experience in project design and engineering.

The hybrid gasifiers promise to further expand the market for syngas – the main product of the gasification process – into the chemicals, hydrogen and fertilizer industries.
