About Don Quichote

Hydrogen production via renewable electricity utilisation is seen as a valuable business opportunity to efficiently use intermittent clean energy sources.

By storing excess renewable electricity in large quantities in hydrogen, renewable energy can be effectively utilised for road transportation, grid balancing and other areas of application.

In this way, the role of hydrogen as a storage medium could greatly enhance the deployment of renewable energy sources and contribute to the EU’s decarbonisation objectives. However, energy companies and renewable energy developers have yet to integrate hydrogen as a storage medium into their future planning.
