The research results within the project are now beginning to be disseminated, nationally and internationally. Simon Öberg, who is a doctoral student at Chalmers University of Technology, has now been researching the role of hydrogen in the European energy system for more than 2.5 years and will present his licentiate thesis, Hydrogen in the European […]

The first use of locally produced hydrogen in a gas turbine test !

The ZEHTC facility at Siemens Energy in Finspang

In late December 2021, the project reached a milestone and successfully put the T in the ZEHTC through connecting a gas turbine to the Zero Emission Hydrogen Turbine Center at the turbine manufacturing plant in Sweden. This means that the project is now ready to safely use the hydrogen produced onsite in the regular machine […]

Academic papers from ZEHTC published

The academic partners in the project, University of Bologna and Chalmers University of Tehcnology, published have scientific papers on Hydrogen and the pilot plant in Finspang, Sweden. The University of Bologna has published the paper: “Optimal Design of Renewable Hydrogen Production for Gas Turbine Test Facilities”. The aim of the paper is the development of […]

A milestone reached – hydrogen production

After intensive work a milestone was reached in the project last week, the production of hydrogen was started. The next step is to search for a good turbine to burn the hydrogen in. In meanwhile we trim and learn the system for stable operation. This is one step closer to demonstrate a microgrid solution combining […]

Starting up the batteries with the sun!

Installed solar panels in Finspang

The solar park (PV) design and installation of a stationary battery system is coming together piece by piece. The latest piece is the solar parks battery. The company STELLA is the sub-contractor for this part. The partnership with STELLA gives access to renewable energy production, energy storage expertise and system integration of the world’s leading […]

New national hydrogen strategy

Swans on a lake

The Government of Sweden have ordered the Swedish Energy Agency to produce a national hydrogen strategy which should be finalized latest by july 2021. The goal of the strategy and proposed measures is to develop and take advantage of the opportunities with hydrogen and electric fuels and facilitate the transition to a fossil free society. […]
