Hydrogen storage system for long-term storage

for ecological autonomy of 5 - 10 days (with a daily demand of 20 - 40 kWh)

You have a photovoltaic system on your roof and perhaps a day storage unit in the basement to really use your own energy. But the next winter is bound to come and then it often becomes difficult to generate your own electricity. So you get your electricity from the regional grid again. But what if you could feed all your surpluses into your own long-term storage system instead of into the grid during the summer months? You would have your own electricity even on less favourable sunny days.

innovenergy offers you unlimited, loss-free, long-term hydrogen-based storage for your PV system:

  • Maintenance-free AES electrolysis technology
  • Space-saving hydrogen storage at 30 or 200 bar
  • Low compressor power of the 35 bar high-pressure AES electrolyser
  • Simple touch-screen control panel with integrated remote maintenance
  • Cradle-to-cradle energy storage system

The system in a class of its own

Secure your ecological autonomy – also for emergencies when the grid fails. Remain self-sufficient for five to ten days if the sun does not shine enough and your photovoltaic system produces too little or no energy. With a hybreeze© you can store for an unlimited period of time without any losses

With the maintenance-free AES electrolysis technology and the delay-free photovoltaic-electrolyser coupling, you can make optimal use of solar energy. It is always possible to increase the output with additional fuel cells or the capacity with an implementation of salt battery storage. Hydrogen is stored in an industrial 50-litre standard gas cylinder bundle at 30 bar. A space-saving version at 200 bar is also available. Both H2 storage systems are expandable in case of larger photovoltaic production surpluses.

The system is a cradle-to-cradle energy storage system. In a closed material cycle within the hybreeze©, rainwater is turned into energy and then back into clean water.

Recycling

The recycling of the hybreeze© works like a normal disposal of electrical appliances via the metal recycling of the official disposal services in the municipalities.

Warranty

The electrolyser and the fuel cell are guaranteed for 15 years. The prerequisite for this is the conclusion of a service contract for the periodic inspection of the components every two years. All electronic components such as inverters, DC-DC converters, etc. have a five-year warranty.

Norms

The products are built according to the current state of the art and in compliance with the requirements of the existing standards, in particular the European standards with CE mark: EN 60335-1, EN 55014-1, EN 55014-2, EN-IEC 61000-6-1, EN-IEC 61000-6-2, EN-IEC 61000-6-3, EN60204-1:2006, EN 60079-10-1 (CEI 31-87):2010, EN ISO 13857: 2008, ISO 22734-1:2008, EN ISO 12100:2010, PED Directive 2014/68/UE, Machinery Directive 2006/42/CE, Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2004/108/CE.

Extension options

In principle, the storage volume (energy content) can be expanded by duplicating the storage cylinders. This extends the required production time accordingly (more sun, more PV production). To increase the power output, the hybreeze© can be supplemented with a salidomo© 9 salt battery storage system. This would provide a nominal 6 kVA and a peak load of 9 kVA.
