Power-to-X: the HyBalance project

Power-to-X technologies are considered important in order to decarbonize the energy sector, especially where direct electrification is difficult with current technologies.

HyBalance is a project that demonstrates Power-to-X in real scale. Hydrogen is produced from water electrolysis, which enables storage of renewable electricity from for instance wind turbines. The technology can thus help balance the electricity grid and the hydrogen can be used for clean transportation and industrial purposes. The hydrogen produced in the HyBalance project can supply a fleet of more than 800 fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) and could contribute up to 0.5 per cent of the GHG reduction targets of the Danish transport sector.

The project facility is placed in Hobro in northern Denmark close to relevant hydrogen end-users in high value markets, such as industry, hydrogen-refuelling stations for fuel cell cars and -buses and salt caverns for hydrogen storage. The HyBalance project has received EUR 2.6 million in funding from EUDP and EUR 8 million from the EU.
