Pioneering clean tech.
WELCOME TO H2GO POWER
H2GO Power is a pioneering cleantech company. We develop and deliver hydrogen energy storage technology for zero-emission, safe, and reliable power supply, with a range of commercial applications.
“Our mission is to provide clean, reliable power from renewable sources that meets decarbonization targets fast, bringing profitable social impact to millions across the world.”
Access to reliable electricity is often not possible, either grid extensions are too expensive or diesel is too costly to use and transport. H2GO offers a production and storage system allowing access to green reliable power at significant cost reductions. Growth in the renewable sector is leading to grid imbalances causing green energy to be wasted. H2GO’s solution allows for 100% renewables utilisation all year round making renewables more economically viable and supporting their growth and development. Instead of a high-pressure cylinder, hydrogen is stored as a solid-state carbon-free fuel with the release of hydrogen on-demand through our patent pending reactor. Energy distribution by solid-state fuel is an alternative to electrical and gas grid networks.
H2GO Power solution
H2GO Power energy storage solution allows for clean, reliable, and scalable energy storage for a wide range of commercial, industrial, and residential applications. This includes applications where grid-based energy is either hard to achieve, unreliable, or uses considerable quantities of fossil fuel via conventional sources.
Our unique technology enables us to develop and sell hydrogen energy storage systems for UAVs/Drones and “Plug & Play” stationary power units on a large scale.
Safe, solid-state proprietary technology eliminates the need for pressurising hydrogen and unlocks significant commercial opportunities. With low-pressure storage removing safety concerns of compressed hydrogen use, H2GO Power’s portable applications enable lightweight and clean energy storage.
H2GO Power’s business is underpinned by a valuable IP portfolio (granted & pending) with freedom to operate. IP portfolio involves a number of state-of-the-art H2 energy storage technologies that cover multiple applications in the power/energy market.
- Innovation on the material front; highly porous nano-particle based smart material that combines production, storage and controlled release of hydrogen.
- Innovation on the system engineering front; 3D printed and traditionally manufactured H2 storage reactors that operate at low pressures to store up to 7wt.%.
- Innovation on the energy storage front; Plug and Play stationary power units, shipping container size units that combine H2 generation, storage and conversion designed to store energy in the form of H2 (i.e. ‘H2 batteries’)
- Innovation on the software management front; AI predictive algorithms that optimise the operation of the storage systems, responding to user demands and predicts power cost.
Competitive advantages over typical Li-Ion batteries are 3x longer the lifetime with >2x the storage capacity.
Lighter than equivalent battery counterparts
Megatons of CO2 savings Yearly
Less pressure than typical high-pressure H2 storage systems
H2GO Power addresses three major impact areas, where addressing energy poverty, tackling climate change and air pollution directly resulted from implementing its solutions.
- Social – Access to energy is key for improving living conditions for billions in poverty across the globe in terms of health, education, and prosperity.
- Environmental – Mitigating climate change with a zero-emission energy supply can reduce humanitarian crises across the globe including creating climate refugees due to extreme weather, droughts, and threats to stability and livelihood.
- Economic/Affordability – significant cost savings through technology which is 3x lower the cost than typical Li-ion batteries over the lifetime of the storage assets with>2x the storage capacity.
Plug & Play Storage Unit
H2GO Power’s PnP units are the size of a standard shipping container that can be transported worldwide for use in permanent or temporary cases. Designed to take in renewable energy and store it as hydrogen for a long duration (>8h), the PnP units then release power on demand (conversion using fuel cells or engines). AI algorithms then provide cost-efficient management and optimal storage/response operations.
Through the use of a water electrolyser, the unit splits water to produce hydrogen. The hydrogen is then stored within our proprietary solid-state hydrogen storage system until needed. During periods of unmet demand, the storage units release hydrogen to the fuel cell with its output being electricity and water as the only by-product.
H2GO Power’s drone application solution also aims to increase flight time – a factor that affects all drone users, ranging from hobbyists to industrial users. The innovative technology can deliver flight times up to 3x longer than typical Li-ion batteries. The shape and design of the storage unit is unlimited with the flexibility to fit within different structures for power systems
The Hydrogen Storage to Energise Robotics in Air Application (HyStERIAA) project aims to develop a compact hydrogen storage system that is safer and lighter than commercially available pressure tanks. This will be achieved through the application of a patent-pending solid-state hydrogen storage system and an innovative additive manufacturing approach to enable early low volume production.
