Hydrogen

I am following here Arno A Evers. He is the Hydro Energy Pioneer of the First Hour and started his research and hydrogen ambassador campaign more than 15 years ago! Club Of Rome and UN conferences have discussed the need of renewables for decades getting rid of fossile fuels to save the planet and mankind.

At present, hydrogen production predominantly relies on fossil fuel-based processes such as steam methane reforming, which contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. To establish a sustainable hydrogen economy, we must focus on developing and scaling up low-carbon or carbon-neutral production methods. Advancements in electrolysis, for instance, offer a promising pathway to produce hydrogen from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, and hydropower. By utilizing surplus renewable energy during periods of low demand, we can generate hydrogen through water electrolysis, resulting in a clean and abundant source of energy.

Moreover, integrating hydrogen into existing energy systems presents opportunities for off-the-grid solutions. By coupling hydrogen production with renewable energy installations, excess energy can be stored and utilized during periods of high demand or when intermittent renewable sources are unavailable. This not only enhances the stability and reliability of energy supply but also facilitates the decentralization of power generation, empowering communities to become self-sufficient and resilient.

Motto von Arno A Evers:

“Power to the People” betont die Demokratisierung des Zugangs zu Energie, die Menschen sind dabei Eigentümer ihrer Energiequellen.

Die Sonne ist für alle Menschen da wie auch der Wind und das Wasser!

Indem wir uns von der Abhängigkeit von Energiekartellen und Lobbyisten lösen, ermöglichen dezentrale Lösungen lokaler Kommunen und Einzelpersonen (Endverbraucher) selbst aktive Teilnehmer in der Energieerzeugung und -verteilung zu werden.

Die Vorteile von verteilten Energiesystemen liegen auf der Hand, wie zum Beispiel gemeinschaftseigene erneuerbare Energieprojekte, Kooperativen und Mikronetze.

Diese Modelle fördern Energieunabhängigkeit, sie bringen lokale wirtschaftliche Entwicklung voran und Personen oder Gemeinden werden dazu befähigt, nachhaltige Entscheidungen für sich selbst zu treffen.

Neue Denke heisst dabei Zusammenarbeit und ein gerechter Zugang zu Energieressourcen für alle Mitglieder der Gesellschaft.

Storage and Off the grid solutions

Yes, there are many decentralized off-grid solutions that use renewable energy sources to provide electricity and water for various purposes. Some of the common technologies are:

  • Solar photovoltaic (PV): This technology converts sunlight into electricity using solar panels. Solar PV can be used to power individual homes, businesses, or mini-grids that serve a community. Solar PV can also be used for water pumping, heating, cooling, and refrigeration¹².
  • Mini/micro hydro: This technology harnesses the energy of flowing water to generate electricity using turbines. Mini/micro hydro systems can be installed in rivers, streams, or canals, and can supply electricity to nearby households or mini-grids²³.
  • Biomass gasifiers: This technology converts organic matter such as wood, crop residues, or animal waste into a combustible gas that can be used for cooking, heating, or generating electricity. Biomass gasifiers can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels¹².
  • Biogas: This technology produces a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide from the anaerobic digestion of organic waste such as animal manure, sewage, or food waste. Biogas can be used as a fuel for cooking, heating, lighting, or running vehicles. Biogas can also be upgraded to biomethane, which can be injected into the natural gas grid or used as a transport fuel¹⁴.
  • Wind turbines: This technology converts the kinetic energy of wind into electricity using blades that rotate a generator. Wind turbines can be installed individually or in clusters, and can provide electricity to off-grid or grid-connected users. Wind turbines can also be used for water pumping or desalination¹⁴.

These are some of the examples of decentralized off-grid energy solutions that can help reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and improve the energy and water access for rural and remote communities. 🌱.
