How can hydrogen ride the sustainability wave?

The Hydrogen market is expected to expand significantly in the next few years – GlobalData has tracked more than 43.6 mtpa of total active and upcoming low carbon hydrogen production capacity (green and blue hydrogen). As the industry develops and the cost of producing hydrogen drops, demand is expected to increase significantly. As a result, countries across the world are announcing much needed supporting policy framework for hydrogen. While refining and ammonia production have traditionally been the key consumer sectors for hydrogen, new uses such as transport and energy storage are set to influence the market. While green hydrogen presently has a small share in the overall production mix, it is poised to increase given the ambitious targets announced by various countries. GlobalData’s report provides insights into key issues in the emerging hydrogen space, such as:
  • Hydrogen value chain
  • Demand drivers
  • Key application areas
  • Technology trends

Description

The Maui Smart Grid Project was completed using smart grid as the technology category. It is an advanced grid infrastructure, advanced metering infrastructure, microgrid project with a rated capacity of 200MW. It is implemented in the islands.

The smart grid project is owned by Hawaiian Electric and Maui Electric.

The Maui Smart Grid Project has the following equipment associated with it:

– 1 MW / 1.2 MWh Battery Energy Storage System
– Distribution Management System
– Smart Meters

Maui Smart Grid Project development status

The development of Maui Smart Grid Project was started in 2011 and the commissioning was completed in 2017.

The project was developed with Advanced Metering Infrastructure as the main technology.The key benefit of the technology used is improves the process of managing supply, demand and data quality.

Additional information

– “JUMPSmartMaui,” a collaborative demonstration project between Japan, Hawaii, and Maui that incorporated Smart Grid, renewable energy, and all-electric vehicle solutions in Maui’s electrical grid. – The goal of JUMPSmartMaui – based on a US-Japan government agreement – was to demonstrate smart grid technologies to enable the efficient use of renewable energy in an island setting. – The project aggregates and control distributed energy resources, EVs, and other innovative technologies to respond to changing demands on the grid caused by the increasing levels of as-available renewable energy.
