The unique combination of
renewable energy projects and green
hydrogen production reduces grid congestion problems

Renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar farms, currently face many difficulties in their realization or scaling. Due to variable electricity production and increasing consumption and production of electricity, the electricity grid becomes congested. This often leads to the inability to deliver or take electricity from the grid. Congestion problems in the electricity grid often hamper the realization of more renewable energy projects, which slows down the energy transition. 

Green hydrogen can play a key role in reducing congestion problems in the electricity grid. Renewable energy generators can use their additional electricity capacity to produce hydrogen for storage. Different from electricity production by wind and solar, green hydrogen is not limited by real-time demand and can be stored and used when needed. Green hydrogen production and storage may thereby also increase the number of possibilities available for the development of local and regional renewable energy projects.
