Mississauga, Ontario-based Hydrogenics Corp., a designer and manufacturer of hydrogen electrolyzers and fuel cell systems, has been selected to provide the hydrogen electrolyzer for a community wind-hydrogen-diesel system in the community of Ramea, Newfoundland and Labrador.

By adding hydrogen generation and storage, Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is anticipating an increase in the amount of electricity derived from wind. Hydrogenics anticipates it will deliver its commercially proven HySTATTM onsite generation electrolyzer to Hydro within one year.

"We believe that hydrogen will play a critical role in capturing the power of renewable resources and creating viable energy systems that are cost effective, sustainable and environmentally friendly," says Daryl Wilson, president and CEO of Hydrogenics. "Batteries are often used to store excess energy; however, batteries incur significant loss over periods of time and are relatively expensive options for energy storage. By comparison, stored hydrogen does not dissipate energy over time, and the cost of storage is relatively low."
