Underwater green hydrogen storage for energy grids


A new study undertaken at the Aberdeen-based National Subsea Centre (NSC) aims to advance the potential of subsea green hydrogen storage for use in industries such as offshore oil, automotive and aerospace, and household heating.

As demand continues to increase for low and zero carbon energy solutions, green hydrogen technology has shown to be a viable alternative to fossil-based fuel. 

To help fulfil this need for clean energy, a joint research project between Robert Gordon University (RGU) and the Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) is exploring the design and optimisation of underwater tanks able to store pure hydrogen at a large scale. 

Stating that hydrogen is ‘at the heart’ of integrated energy, Jemma Reynolds, Integrated Energy Research Assistant, NSC, spoke about hydrogen, adding, “When pressurised or liquefied, it has the highest energy content per unit of weight.”
