Hydrogen from wind curtailment for a cleaner European road transport system

Hydrogen from wind curtailment for a cleaner European road transport system
©EU
Abstract: 
Wind power is currently curtailed in order to stabilise power systems and due to economic considerations. Using curtailed wind energy to produce hydrogen could fuel hundreds of thousands of new cars. Producing hydrogen from wind curtailment is however still more expensive than buying it at market price.
