Hydrogen powered Orkney

An Orkney Islands Council van - powered by hydrogen.

"Why Hydrogen? Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. but very little of it is freely available. However, hydrogen can be produced through electrolysis of water (H2O) by using an electrical current to split it into its component parts of Hydrogen (H2) and Oxygen (O2). This process will allow Orkney to make good use of an abundance of renewable electricity that would otherwise be lost or wasted. Hydrogen produced this way allows surplus renewable energy to be stored and used where it is needed for heat, power, transport and other purposes – without the need for an electricity grid. "
