University of Malta researchers explore integrating offshore wind, energy storage and hydrogen production

May 12, 2023 |

In Malta, Malta Today reported that a group of researchers at the University of Malta are currently investigating the feasibility of producing green hydrogen out at sea by using energy generated by floating wind turbines.

The project also foresees the use of an innovative piston technology developed by the University of Malta to store excess energy generated by the wind turbines, the report stated.

The two-year project called HydroGenEration is being carried out by the University of Malta and its spin out company FLASC B.V., based in the Netherlands, and is funded by the Energy and Water Agency under the National Strategy for Research and Innovation in Energy and Water.

The report also noted that the HydroGenEration project team is conducting a review of current and emerging technologies’ status, looking at local prospective sites, constraints and opportunities, identifying stakeholders and conducting numerical modeling to investigate the feasibility of offshore green hydrogen production.
