Solar Energy

You can hardly drive into an industrial area or residential area without seeing a roof or lawn with solar panels. More and more people and companies are choosing to install solar panels to meet their own energy needs. The challenge here is only becoming increasingly clear: our electricity grid is not able to process the large amount of energy that is generated locally. We are almost used to using our electrical grid connection as a battery. We produce an excess of energy during the day and at night we use what we had left and fed back to the grid. In some cases it already happens that a maximum is set for the energy to be returned to the grid, so that valuable energy is lost because it cannot be used. And what do you do with the space you have left for solar panels, if you cannot use or store the energy yourself?

Converting solar energy into hydrogen

Storing energy in batteries is possible, but batteries lose their capacity over time during charging and discharging of the battery. In addition, many batteries use rare metals that have to be mined with a significant impact on our nature. Converting solar energy into hydrogen as a battery is a more sustainable solution, but until recently this seemed very complicated. The generated energy is converted into hydrogen and oxygen by means of the electrolysis of water. The generated hydrogen is then stored, and at a later time it can be used again to make energy from hydrogen again by reversing the electrolysis process.


Our solution for using solar panels

Adsensys applies AEM technology to convert energy into hydrogen by means of electrolysis. This technology does not use rare materials. as a result, the hydrogen electrolyser we use is 100% recyclable. In addition, the core of the electrolyser has been developed for series production, which keeps costs low. Because we use this series-produced core, we can already supply a hydrogen generation system with a minimum energy requirement of 2.4 kW (6 400 Watt Peak solar panels). Thanks to the modular system, we can connect these cores to each other, so that larger systems up to, for example, 1MW are no problem.

The hydrogen produced by the AEM electrolyser can be stored after production and used at a later time to supply energy again by means of a fuel cell. The great advantage of this way of energy storage is that it will always remain the same regardless of aging or the charge and discharge cycles.

About Adsensys

Adsensys supplies several innovative systems for generating energy using hydrogen from green energy sources. We are skilled, all-round, progressive, and we work effectively. We supply complete systems and/or individual components depending on your wishes and situation: from the required electrolysers to drying and storage and return delivery. Whether it concerns a small system or a 1MW installation, everything is approached modularly, so Speed, clarity and transparency are self-evident during a collaboration with us.
