Electricity Products:
With the reliable power generation system, stable electricity is guaranteed 24 hours per day at a constant output. During off peak periods, the surplus electricity is automatically switched to hydrogen production by electrolysis of another I-OTECS product, pure water.
How it works:
Electrolysis of pure water is the decomposition of water into oxygen and hydrogen gas by passing an electric current through pure water, (see fig. 3). The hydrogen manufactured at these off peak times can be stored and later utilized to meet power needs during peak times or used to fuel vehicles via fuel cells. This utilization of hydrogen enables the wider use of renewables and self-sustainability.
As I-OTECS utilizes 100% renewable energy, the hydrogen produced is also 100% renewable, in contrast to the current methods which rely heavily on fossil fuels.
