The Limits of Offshore Wind and Hydrogen Production

Live Webinar

Offshore wind energy promises to reach 4,000 full-load hours or more. It is a great match for green hydrogen production, as electrolysers need to be operated as many hours per year as possible. A new study commissioned by Agora Energiewende has analysed offshore wind expansion scenarios for Germany and scrutinized the assumption of 4,000 full-load hours.

How many full-load hours can offshore wind effectively reach in the German North Sea at very high installed capacity densities?

To answer this question, the Technical University of Denmark and the Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry simulated interaction effects between wind farms and the atmosphere. They used two physically-based methods of very different complexity to get to the same insight: The more intensely offshore wind energy is being used at increasingly larger scales, its full-load hours are likely to decline. This requires better resource potential estimation methods and planning approaches.

Matthias Deutsch works at Agora Energiewende, an independent think tank, and concentrates on power and heat sector coupling, as well as on storage, including hydrogen.

Axel Kleidon uses thermodynamics to quantify natural energy conversions within the Earth system and applies this approach to understand the natural limits of renewable energy.

One of Jake Badger’s goals is to accelerate developments for the application and dissemination of meteorology modelling and datasets in wind energy community, and to strengthen co-development and collaboration across specializations to deliver novel research and innovation.
