INGRID Project at “Smart Mediterraneo. Best practices, innovation and pilot projects in smart grid development in the Mediterranean region” workshop planned in Bari (Italy) on June 23 - 24, 2016

Description: On June 23 and 24, INGRID project will be presented in the workshop “Smart Mediterraneo. Best practices, innovation and pilot projects in smart grid development in the Mediterranean region”, organized by the European Commission Joint Research Centre Institute for Energy and Transport in Bari (Italy).

The workshop is related to the activities of the smart specialization platform for energy and is aimed at building synergies among the regions of the Mediterranean Sea to exchange experiences and best practice in the field of smart grid. Regional authorities, companies, universities and research centres will benefit from the workshop, whose objective is the creation of links between local and international stakeholders, gather needs and expertise and improve innovation capacities in the smart grid technologies.

On June 23 Puglia Region and ARTI Puglia, represented by Carlo Gadaleta Caldarola, will have a speech on the apulian background on sustainable energy and smart grids, with a special link to INGRID, and on June 24 Massimo Bertoncini will present INGRID project in the session related to best practices from pilot projects in smart grid development.
Target audience: Local institutions, Industry, SMEs, Academia
Date: June 23-24, 2016
Location: Bari (Italy)

Description:  One of the key building blocks of the INGRID demonstrator site is the water electrolysis system. Here pure water molecules are decomposed into oxygen (O2) and hydrogen (H2) gases by applying a direct current (DC) through electrodes immersed in a water-salt solution. For INGRID project, the consortium partner Hydrogenics has engineered, built and tested their largest single electrolyser to date based on this robust alkaline technology.

The unit is a self-sufficient hydrogen production plant. Besides the water electrolysis modules, it contains a gas-liquid separation system for both hydrogen and oxygen, and a purification system yielding a 99,999% grade pure hydrogen product. Additionally all the power conditioning is being done inside the system, transforming high voltage alternating current (AC) of green origin taken from the grid to a DC voltage suited for electrolysis. A high performance water purification system treat the incoming city water so that the volume of splitted water is made up and added into the processing unit. Last but not least an integrated control and safety system takes care of the communication with the surrounding equipment.

The over-all efficiency of the electricity-to-hydrogen conversion has been verified in factory acceptance tests and ranges from 60 to 80% for this type of units, depending on the exact operating point. Water electrolysis thus becomes a corner stone in many of the new technologies that are able to store excesses green power by either using hydrogen gas as such, or by using the hydrogen for further chemical processing.
