Vandenborre Energy Systems NV
Vandenborre Energy Systems NV is a Belgian SME (Small and Medium Size Enterprise) active in the R&D, design, manufacturing and distribution of (amongst others) hydrogen generation products and services.
The business mainly consists of (i) electrolysis-based hydrogen generation equipment for buildings and industrial applications (Hydrogen Generation); (ii) hydrogen-based energy storage solutions for renewable energy applications (Energy Storage); (iii) working with European private and government bodies to realize energy storage projects for coupling with renewable energy based on hydrogen, both directly and with partner firms (Projects & Services).
Contribution to NETfficient:
Demonstration and performance verification of energy storage based on hydrogen technology that is connected with a low voltage substation or with variable distributed electricity generation in individual houses. Issues on safety, socioeconomic and business models are envisaged. The proposed energy storage solution is the missing link for mass uptake of residential solar PV, since it balances its irregularity, i.e. no longer facing peak or off-peak periods.
