Feasibility study into the production of hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen gases on Unst using a smart management system to utilise grid constrained renewable energy.


Study to assess the feasibility of producing hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen gases on Unst using a smart management system to utilise grid constrained renewable energy. It will evaluate how these gases can be used positively to benefit markets and industries present on the island through the provision of a natural fuel resource and stable prices. It has the potential to decrease cumulative power demand on the island through the provision of locally sourced alternative fuels. It will seek to identify a smart off grid and on grid balancing solution.
