Techno-economic assessment of wind energy for renewable hydrogen production in Sweden!

Published Jun 27, 2019

New PhD thesis!

In April 2019,  researcher Shahid Siyal  presented his thesis on wind energy for renewable hydrogen production in Sweden. In the thesis, high-resolution spatial assessments were performed to evaluate wind energy and wind-to-hydrogen energy potentials, including land use restrictions and techno-economic evaluations. The methodology combines analysis with Geographic Information System (GIS) data and the Hybrid Optimization Model for Multiple Energy Resources (HOMER) tool and includes key constraints with the purpose of improving the fidelity of the assessments. The analysis showed that significant potentials for wind and hydrogen energy might be harnessed in Sweden and that wind-generated hydrogen can be produced cost-effectively at selected sites along existing roads.
