Analysis of the Operation of a University Campus using Renewable Energy Sources, Hydrogen Generator and Fuel Cells
The European Green Deal ecological package favors the upward trend for installing new renewable energy sources (RES) and achieving climate neutrality. In this sense, new RESs are installed and proposed. In this study, the upscale of a smart grid system installed at a university campus consists of renewable energy sources, a hydrogen generator, a fuel cell and a methanizer are analyzed in order to obtain a circular economy. The hydrogen generator is producing hydrogen that can be stored in tanks and used by the fuel cell in order to supply the demand. The methanizer uses the hydrogen produced by the hydrogen generator and the carbon dioxide from the exhaust of the diesel engine and is producing methane.
