Cutting Edge AI Software to Optimise Hydrogen Production and Storage

A 12-month project in Orkney will trial artificial intelligence (AI) software to optimise hydrogen production and storage.

Taking place in two phases: the first phase involves running proof-of-value simulations with the AI software using data from commercial use cases provided by project partners EMEC and National Grid Gas Transmission.

The second phase will see the platform integrated into EMEC’s hydrogen production plant on Eday and tested as a fully integrated pilot. 

The project has received £494k funding from the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy’s Energy Entrepreneur Fund.

Enas Abo-Hamed, Co-Founder and CEO at H2GO Power said:

“We are very excited to demonstrate how our collaboration with EMEC and National Grid Gas Transmission is going from strength to strength. HyAI, alongside our smart hardware storage system, addresses the unique operational challenges that come with system design, production, storage, distribution and conversion of hydrogen as a commodity.

“This project is the start of many others in the pipeline. The commitment within this partnership, team competence and cutting-edge technology we’re trialling provide all the ingredients to give confidence in successful outcomes of the project and a promising scalable commercial offering.”

Scotland has a five-year plan “to help build Scotland’s hydrogen economy and deliver an ambition for the technology to provide nearly a sixth of Scotland’s energy needs by 2030” backed with over £100million of funding from the Scottish Government.
