P2G hydrogen supply chain

  • New energy network to transport electricity in the form of hydrogen
  • It is possible to produce a huge amount of hydrogen using a multi-megawatt solar power plant and supply the produced hydrogen to the facilities where it is required.
  • It is possible to produce hydrogen using unused renewable energy and transport the produced hydrogen to a town where it is consumed.
  • It is possible to transport the hydrogen produced using renewable energy to the places where it is used as fuel for forklifts, etc.

Surplus renewable energy can be stored and transported by converting it into hydrogen. This makes it possible to smooth out the fluctuations in renewable energy generation. Since the stored hydrogen can also be used as a fuel or a chemical material, Toshiba's hydrogen energy solution helps further increase the utilization of renewable energy. Toshiba provides CO2-free hydrogen supply chains using renewable energy.

Era for renewable energy to become the main source of electricity

To reduce CO2 emissions, it is essential to promote renewable energy. However, since many renewable energy sources are intermittent and greatly dependent on weather conditions, it is assumed that much of the renewable energy generation will be suppressed at the time renewable energy becomes the main source of electricity.

To increase the utilization efficiency of renewable energy, it is necessary to use surplus energy.

Now & 2030~

Toshiba's P2G hydrogen supply chain

The process of converting surplus electricity into hydrogen or other gas fuel is called power-to-gas (P2G). Once surplus electrical energy is converted into hydrogen, it can be used anytime, anywhere for various purposes. P2G provides the following benefits:

 ● Alleviation of constraints for grid electricity incurred by on-grid renewable energy
 ● Use surplus energy
 ● Adjusting grid power
 ● Reduced output of thermal and nuclear power generation
 ●Increased domestic energy self-sufficiency ratio

Aiming to realize a sustainable society

To maintain the health of the global environment for future generations, it is crucial to tap into CO2-free energy and use it without waste. Total energy management that takes into account when and where various forms of energy are consumed will contribute to the creation of sustainable and thriving communities.
