Evangelist? No, not at all. Pragmatist? Absolutely, because life has kicked me around.
We have to be pragmatic about finding a solution to reducing carbon emissions in our energy network. In 2015 the transmission system operator curtailed 0.85 terawatt hours (TWh) renewable energy at a cost to you and I of £ 90.5 million. In 2017, 1.5 million TWh were curtailed, how much did this cost us? I’d estimate it’s considerably more than £90.5 million.
ITM sees hydrogen as an effective near-term method of decarbonising the grid and storing energy.
