Hydrogen in the real world – have a look!

 

Hydrogen via wind power in action can be witnessed from several parts of the world – especially Denmark, home country of the great pioneer Poul la Cour (See our home page for info on Poul la Cour). Whether you are already a committed hydrogen advocate, or so far just a curious observer of the hydrogen scene, here are some sites which may convince you of the feasibility of wind-derived hydrogen as a store of ambient energy and as a fuel,entirely fit to displace all carbon-laden fossil fuels.

We begin in Denmark, of course, where all the information we need has kindly been translated into English. Here is Lolland, hard at work on hydrogen since 2008:

And in Denmark again, another island is hard at work, although hydrogen only merits a small mention within a bigger story of the extraordinary efforts made by 4000 islanders to minimise their carbon emissions:

Still in Scandinavia, we hop over to another island, the Norwegian possession of Utsira:

Further afield, we can visit the island of Unst, off the coast of Scotland, where the PURE project has been working in parallel with the Danes and Norwegians:

And in Canada, where the Harp Project shows how hydrogen needs to be integrated into the wider energy picture of each community:

And over to New Zealand, where the Hy-Link Project, at Totara shows how the wind/hydrogen concept can inspire the highest degree of intelligent investigation by young University researchers:
