Prince Edward Island
Wind Hydrogen Village
PEI’s Wind Hydrogen Village was sponsored by the P.E.I. Government to confirm the operation of a 100% wind power village electrification system.
This project was meant to demonstrate how wind energy and hydrogen technologies can work together in the real world to offer clean and sustainable energy solutions. The key component in this project was an electrolyzer, which will take electricity directly from a turbine and use it to break water into oxygen and hydrogen. This is one way to store wind energy to be used when the wind isn’t blowing.
Set in North Cape, P.E.I., Frontier designed and constructed a control system to integrate with already existing turbines, allowing the system to optimize the hydrogen being stored as the output of the wind turbines change.
