Sustainable agriculture with a powerful combination of solar energy and hydrogen
What opportunities does green hydrogen offer agriculture? Research has begun on the island into the possibilities hydrogen offers to make the agricultural business sustainable and circular. The rationale is that both the generation of green energy and the conversion to green hydrogen will develop into part of the business operations.
This project revolves around exploiting a new market for hydrogen. Several agriculturists in the region are looking into how they can produce, store and use hydrogen in combination with their own solar panels on roofs, mobile solar panels on plots combined with a ‘rest year’ and small-scale wind generation. By generating their own green energy and converting it into green hydrogen, these agriculturists can become self-sufficient.
