Project Summary

ITEG will develop and validate an integrated tidal energy and hydrogen production solution for clean energy generation to be demonstrated in Orkney.The project addresses energy related carbon emissions in North West Europe and will tackle grid export limitations faced in remote communities.

Led by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney, the ITEG project brings together partners from across the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands and will adopt three low carbon technologies (tidal turbine, electrolyser and Energy Management System)

The cost of pre-commercial demonstration for ocean energy is high and investors are reluctant to invest until the technology has been proven in the sea at scale. ITEG sets out to drive down these costs through the development of an integrated hydrogen production solution.

The integrated solution combines軌道的next generation 2 MW floating tidal energy converter, the軌道O2 2MW, with a custom built500kW Elogen electrolyser與陸上energy management system (EMS)to be deployed at EMEC's hydrogen production site on the Orkney island of Eday.

The EMS will support the production of hydrogen by routing any excess energy generated by the Orbital O2 turbine on EMEC’s Fall of Warness tidal test site to be used to power an Elogen electrolyser, the first to be deployed in the UK.

Project objectives

  • 開發和驗證為在偏遠地區清潔能源發電的集成的潮汐能和氫生產溶液
  • 通過氫的生產和儲能海洋能源領域打開新的市場機會
  • 優化EMS和快速跟蹤在實現商業化清潔能源發電,管理和存儲解決方案
  • 建的路線圖,以支持在其他遠程集成解決方案的複製,網格限製區域

ITEG Webinar Series: The Importance of Tidal Energy in a Clean Hydrogen Economy

, Online/Zoom

You are invited to join us for the first virtual event in the 4 part ITEG webinar series on 19 October 10:00 - 11:30 (BST). In this first webinar, we’ll discuss the important contribution that tidal energy can bring to achieving global carbon emission reduction targets. Speakers will discuss the latest tidal innovations under development and how integration with hydrogen production could open up new market opportunities for the ocean energy sector. The webinar will also share insight from the ITEG project: an integrated tidal energy and hydrogen production solution for clean energy generation to be demonstrated in Orkney.



Theme of the day: Hydrogen Valleys connected     The symposium experts will discuss the various regionally Hydrogen Valley initiatives that are developing through-out European Union and elsewhere. What do the various initiatives have in common and where do they differ? In addition, it will be discussed how duplication of effort and undue competition can be prevented and how instead synergies can be achieved by intensifying collaboration. Many representatives of Hydrogen Valleys and involved stakeholders will share their hands-on experiences, seek for modalities to align mutual interest and to create lasting cross-border alliances.

NTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HYDROGEN SAFETY 2021 “Safe Hydrogen for Net Zero” The Scottish Government and IA HySafe invite you to take part in ICHS2021 which will be about “Safe Hydrogen for Net Zero”. The first eight ICHS biennial conferences from 2005 to 2019 attracted experts from all over the world, and provided an open platform for the presentation and discussion of new findings, information and data on hydrogen safety – from basic research to applied development and from good practice to standardisation and regulatory issues. This further reinforces Scotland as one of the leading locations for deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell solutions into developing low carbon energy systems. Highlights include the expanding hydrogen bus fleet in Aberdeen and along with many other innovative projects in locations such as Fife, the Western Isles, and the Orkney Islands. These projects are leading the way with a ‘learning by doing’ approach, and are willing to share best practice and experience. All contributions to ICHS2021 will be evaluated for their scientific content and relevance to the wider uptake and deployment of safe hydrogen as part of the transition to a low carbon energy system.

At WHTC 2021, local and international attendees have the opportunity to present their technical findings and advancements in hydrogen and fuel cells, as well as participate in f-cell+HFC, the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Event for marketing and networking. WHTC is hosted by the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA), under the auspices of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE). WHTC together with f-cell+HFC join two important worlds: innovative technologies and scientific research with international markets and business cases. The convention will see the leaders of the hydrogen sector of the clean energy transition creating, discussing and developing next steps, now that the Canadian Hydrogen Strategy and others worldwide have been announced. This year’s event takes place online – a first for WHTC – and offers three days of live scientific and market-oriented activities, including plenaries, seminars, technical sessions, poster and oral presentations, and an international Networking Hub.

With a view to 2050, the European Commission is also putting forward renewable hydrogen as a sustainable energy source. This thematic seminar will guide you through the latest market and technology trends. We’re specifically focusing on the marriage of offshore energy, such as offshore wind energy in combination with the production of green hydrogen. Hydrogen is an important part of the European Green Deal. The development of renewable hydrogen based on wind and solar energy is a priority for the European Commission. The aim is to decarbonise the production of hydrogen. The increasing production of offshore wind energy in Europe, in addition to other forms of energy production at sea that are still in full development, offer numerous opportunities to combine and integrate electrolysis. The use of hydrogen will gradually be introduced in various industrial sectors, including the offshore sector.
