The present paper analyzes an innovative energy system based on a hydrogen station, as the core of a smart energy production center, where the produced hydrogen is then used in different hydrogen technologies adopted and installed nearby the station. A case study analysis has been proposed and then investigated, with a station capacity of up to 360 kg of hydrogen daily generated, located close to a University Campus. A hydrogen mobility network has been included, composed of a fuel cell hydrogen fleet of 41 vehicles, 43 bicycles, and 28 fuel cell forklifts. The innovative proposed energy system needs to meet also a power and heat demand for a student housing 5400 m2 building of the University Campus. The performance of the system is presented and investigated, including technical and economic analyses, proposing a hydrogen refueling station as an innovative alternative fuel infrastructure, called Multi-modular Hydrogen Energy Station, marking its great potential in future energy scenarios.

Abstract

The present paper analyzes an innovative energy system based on a hydrogen station, as the core of a smart energy production center, where the produced hydrogen is then used in different hydrogen technologies adopted and installed nearby the station. A case study analysis has been proposed and then investigated, with a station capacity of up to 360 kg of hydrogen daily generated, located close to a University Campus. A hydrogen mobility network has been included, composed of a fuel cell hydrogen fleet of 41 vehicles, 43 bicycles, and 28 fuel cell forklifts. The innovative proposed energy system needs to meet also a power and heat demand for a student housing 5400 m2 building of the University Campus. The performance of the system is presented and investigated, including technical and economic analyses, proposing a hydrogen refueling station as an innovative alternative fuel infrastructure, called Multi-modular Hydrogen Energy Station, marking its great potential in future energy scenarios.
