Hydrogen's Role in the New Grid
The current electrical grid is a complex network of power generation, transmission, and distribution infrastructure built over many decades. While it has served us well in the past, the grid is facing several challenges driving the need for a new, more modern, and flexible grid. These challenges include the increasing integration of renewable energy sources, the need for greater resilience and reliability, and the growing demand for electricity from electric vehicles and other new technologies. Additionally, the current grid was not designed to handle the integration of a high volume of distributed energy resources and is facing challenges of balancing the supply and demand of the generation sources, often resulting in energy loss and inefficiency.
