Hydrogen from methanol
Hydrogen converted from methanol by our Fuel Tower was used by our Power Tower to provide clean energy for ACCIONA's construction site at Alcalá del Valle, Spain.
Hydrogen carrier fuels, such as methanol, are widely recognised in the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate sectors. This is because they are more energy dense than hydrogen, their lower bulk makes them easier and cheaper to transport and store.
In this important field trail, in partnership with our construction partners ACCIONA, we show how it's done.
Our Fuel Tower converts the methanol into hydrogen at a purity suitable to fuel our Power Tower. The connected fuel cells within our Power Tower generator then converts the hydrogen into clean power.
