Clean Power Solutions aims to create hydrogen power partnership in China

Clean Power Solutions is hoping to create a joint partnership with a Chinese company to further the development of renewable energy, energy storage, and hydrogen production and use.

The renewables company is already in discussions with companies in Korea, Europe and the US for partnerships and is seeking more interested companies.

Clean Power Solutions can store all of the power from any size of renewable energy generation and provide it through a synthetic grid to power a site, a farm or factory.  The excess power can either be exported to the Grid in a controlled manner (G83/3) that does not cause problems for the local network or converted into Hydrogen for use as either heating or vehicle fuel.

Meanwhile, Clean Power Solutions took part in the UK finals of the 8th China (Shenzen) Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition in London. 

The judges considered that their renewable energy, storage and small scale Hydrogen production system was so innovative that they awarded CPS an all-expenses trip to the final in Shenzen next month.

Dr Marc Stanton, Commercial/ Marketing Director, Clean Power Solutions, said: “With the massive energy and pollution problems that China is currently facing, the opportunity for a company to generate all of their own clean fuel, reduce pressure on the local power demand and create vehicle and heating fuel could have major financial implications for China.

“Hydrogen, the most abundant fuel on Earth, is widely underused. Hydrogen or H2 is everywhere and all water content is 2 parts hydrogen.

 “Traditionally the technology used to extract the hydrogen element from water has been prohibitively expensive, but working closely with electrolyser manufacturers, Clean Power Solutions has developed a relatively low cost option of energy storage and use.

“By taking the surplus energy created from renewable sources and passing through an electrolyser the hydrogen element of rainwater is extracted and stored under pressure for use when required to provide heat through a hydrogen catalysing boiler”.
