Hyundai Announces Project to Generate Electricity Using Hydrogen Vehicle Technology
 
Hyundai Announces Project to Generate Electricity Using Hydrogen Vehicle Technology
  • Hyundai Motor signs MOU to build 1 MW hydrogen fuel cell power facility in Korea
  • NEXO power module to generate 8,000 MWh of electricity annually with zero emissions
  • Hyundai continues effort to build Hydrogen Society in line with ‘FCEV Vision 2030’
Dubai, UAE, April 18, 2019:  Hyundai Motor Company has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with two South Korean energy firms to generate electricity from hydrogen, using technology from the company’s NEXO hydrogen fuel cell vehicle to power around 2,200 homes.
 
The pilot project, conducted under the MOU with Korea East-West Power (EWP) and Deokyang, will deliver a 1-megawatt (MW) hydrogen fuel cell power facility, with Hyundai Motor building the fuel cell system, EWP managing the facility and sale of electricity, and Deokyang supplying the hydrogen.
 
The agreement was finalized in a signing ceremony attended by Hyundai’s Head of Strategy and Technology Division, President and Chief Innovation Officer Youngcho Chi, along with presidents Il Jun Park and Chi Yoon Lee of EWP and Deokyang, respectively.
 
The 1 MW power facility, scheduled to break ground later this year in the city of Ulsan, will consist of two container-type 500 kW generator modules, each loaded with multiple power modules from Hyundai’s flagship fuel cell vehicle NEXO. 
 
The facility will generate an annual supply of 8,000 MWh, enough electricity to power approximately 2,200 households at 300 kWh per month, while emitting zero greenhouse gases or pollution because it is fueled by hydrogen.
 
The hydrogen used in the facility will be byproduct hydrogen brought from a nearby petrochemical complex through a pipe network, reducing costs and making use of local energy sources.
 
The pilot project presents an opportunity for Hyundai Motor to take its fuel cell technology beyond the automotive industry to achieve economy of scale, which will subsequently lead to cost competitiveness, job creation, and growth of other related industries.
 
EWP will be able to secure an increased share of renewables in its energy mix, while Deokyang will be a step closer to bringing down the price of hydrogen through increased trade volume and stable management of supply and demand.
 
Hyundai Motor will collaborate closely with EWP and Deokyang to expand the scope of the project down the line.
 
Hyundai hopes to foster the fuel cell industry and other related sectors in the future, and will continue its commitment to leverage its fuel cell technology to build a Hydrogen Society in accordance with the FCEV Vision 2030 announced earlier this year.
