Broadly positioned: Solutions for Energy Storage and Hydrogen Fueling Stations

Energy storage and sustainable mobility are growth areas of the German energy transition: Additional storage capacities and further integration of the mobility sector with electricity generation are needed for the further upscaling of renewable energies.

AREVA GmbH in Germany uses both hydrogen as well as battery technology in ongoing projects. The company offers a broad portfolio of technical solutions for short-term and long-term storage of energy as well as for the use of renewable hydrogen for mobility.

Hydrogen: Secure Energy Storage through LOHC

In the Bavarian town of Arzberg a storage facility based on hydrogen stabilizes the electricity production of a solar plant. An electrolyzer produces renewable hydrogen while a fuel cell provides reconversion. The hydrogen is stored in a carrier fluid: A liquified organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) binds the fluid energy carrier chemically and enables a secure and depressurized storage of the hydrogen at a reduced volume.


Batteries of Electro Vehicles as Grid Buffer

AREVA GmbH links traction batteries of electric vehicles with stationary electricity storage facilities. By integrating complete car batteries in the existing safety shell the construction is safe and efficient. The facility provides primary control to balance the grid if needed and to permanently secure stable supply.


Fueling Stations: Renewable Hydrogen Powers Mobility

Renewably generated hydrogen takes sun and wind energy to the roads and railways. Currently, AREVA GmbH prepares fueling station projects based on hydrogen components manufactured by the company. The focus is on public transport with busses and trains. But an industrial use is also possible, for example for forklifts.
