Tidal and wind energy are being used to generate hydrogen in a pilot project installed in Orkney, Scotland, called Surf ‘n’ Turf.
The project was launched earlier this week by Paul Wheelhouse, the Scottish Government’s Business, Innovation and Energy Minister. He officially unveiled the newly installed hydrogen fuel cell at Kirkwall Pier. Other elements of the system, including an electrolyser, have already been installed. The facility produced the “world’s first tidal-powered hydrogen” in August, the European Marine Energy Centre says.
