Green Hydrogen for Ammonia Production - A Case for the Netherlands


An integrated system is studied to supply green hydrogen feedstock for ammonia production in the Netherlands. The system is modeled to compare wind and solar resources when coupled to Alkaline Electrolysis (AEL) and Proton Exchange Membrane Electrolysis (PEMEL) technologies with a compressed hydrogen storage system. The nominal installed capacity of the electrolysis plant is around 2.3 GW, with the most suitable energy source offshore wind, and the preferred storage technology pressurized tubes. For Alkaline Electrolysis and Proton Exchange Membrane Electrolysis technologies, the levelized cost of hydrogen is 5.30 V/kg H2 and 6.03 V/kg H2, respectively.
