Description: Incorporated in 1995, Hydrogenics Corporation is a publicly listed company on the NASDAQ and the TSX since 2001. Initially the three Canadian founders wanted to build a fuel cell company, but were unable to find any component suppliers back in the early 90’s. Hence, they refocused on FC test equipment instead. After the successful IPO the company invested in FC capability, later divested the equipment activity and acquired the electrolyser business of Stewards and Vandenborre in Belgium. Hydrogenics is a worldwide leader designing, manufacturing, and installing hydrogen systems around the globe.

It offers world leading expertise for a wide range of products and applications, including: PEM (proton exchange membrane) and alkaline electrolyser hydrogen generators for

• hydrogen generation for industrial processes;
• hydrogen generation for fueling stations;
• hydrogen energy storage and transportation.

Hydrogenics is pioneering “Power-to-Gas”, the world’s most innovative way to store and transport energy; hydrogen fuel cell power generators for

• transportation such as urban transit buses, commercial fleets and utility vehicles;
• large and small stationary applications such as backup power for hospitals, emergency services, data centers, corporate and production facilities, telecommunication and small commercial buildings;
• free standing electrical power plants and UPS (uninterruptible power supply) systems.

The INGRID project offered Hydrogenics the opportunity to upscale its pressurized alkaline technology by a factor of 2.5, getting this technology ready for grid-scale energy storage applications. Additionally the integration into multiple renewable hydrogen applications is a very valuable learning process. And lastly it gave Hydrogenics the exposure to the Italian renewable energy landscape and stakeholders. Within the INGRID project Hydrogenics is responsible for the hydrogen generation technology as well as the re-electrification or fuel-cell technology. Next to the solid hydrogen storage technology from McPhy, Hydrogenics technology takes up a central role in the INGRID project.

Ingrid paper awarded as Best Paper in IARIA ENERGY 2016

Description: The paper “Multi-objective Optimization of Energy Hubs at the Crossroad of Three Energy Distribution Networks” has been awarded as the best paper in IARIA ENERGY 2016 conference, held in Lisbon (Portugal) on June 26-30, 2016.
The paper has been presented by Engineering to explain some INGRID optimizer tools. The paper provides a multi-objective optimization framework aimed at the management of a multi-carrier energy system involving both electricity and hydrogen. Using the concept of the multi-carrier hub, the proposed system has been modelled in order to define completely every energy flow inside the INGRID plant.

The INGRID project will take part in the Energy 2016 in Lisbon (Portugal) on June 26-30, 2016

Description: The INGRID project will take part in the sixth International Conference on Smart Grids, Green Communications and IT Energy-aware Technologies – ENERGY 2016, that will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) on June 26-30, 2016.

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)
