Denmark - Lolland Hydrogen Community starts hydrogen supply to homes
Applications, Oct  01  2008 (The Hydrogen Journal)

- The "hydrogen community" in the village of Nakskov, on Lolland Island, Denmark, has started phase 2 of its hydrogen plan, which is using hydrogen in five houses for power and heating, with small fuel cells installed in the houses.

The "hydrogen community" in the village of Nakskov, on Lolland Island, Denmark, has started phase 2 of its hydrogen plan, which is using hydrogen in five houses for power and heating, with small fuel cells installed in the houses.

Phase 2 was officially opened by Queen Margrethe of Denmark on September 15 2008.

Phase 1 of the scheme, started in May 2007, was to generate hydrogen using electricity from surplus wind energy.

The village has established a hydrogen community, to try to show how a full scale implementation of hydrogen technology could look like.

The third phase of the project, to start in 2-4 years, will be to install hydrogen heating and micropower systems in 35 to 50 houses.

The existing wind turbines on the island of Lolland produce more than twice as much power as residents can use, says Leo Christensen, project manager.

By converting the wind power to hydrogen, it can be used to keep electricity flowing when there is no wind.
