Hydrogen Hubs

Hydrogen Hubs are energy storage systems with off-peak and/or stranded hydroelectric and wind power being used to synthesize ammonia from water and air, in effect storing the energy through chemical conversion.

Then, in times of peak demand, the stored ammonia can be run through converted diesel or gas generators to provide power capacity. This approach avoids the building of new baseline generating capability and new power transmission lines.
