Modelling real-world renewable hydrogen energy systems for enabling Scotland zero-carbon ambition.




Hydrogen is described as one of the most indicative scenarios for meeting Scotland Net-Zero carbon ambition set out for 2045. According to the 2021 Scottish Government’s hydrogen policy statement, the target is to invest 5 GW of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen by 2030 and to boost the planned capacity to 25 GW by 2045 to transform Scotland into a hydrogen nation. To enable meeting such ambitious goal and promoting the development of renewable hydrogen, there should be accurate dynamic modelling tools and approaches for simulating the entire operation of real-world renewable hydrogen energy systems and measuring realistic opportunities for decarbonizing miscellaneous energy sectors. This talk will investigate the potential of a precise dynamic model designed for sizing solar-hydrogen energy systems and accurately simulating their real-world dynamic behaviors in charging and discharging on-site hydrogen fuel considering an effective energy management operation that can ensure increased clean energy supply towards decarbonizing the Scottish building sector. The developed model has been tested and validated on a group of grid-connected buildings within a Scottish university and the obtained results have demonstrated effectiveness in planning the integration of renewable-hydrogen energy systems within grid-connected buildings.
