Abstract

With the increased penetration of renewables, energy storage has become a critical issue in microgrid and small household applications. Accordingly, this paper undertakes a feasability study the varying limitations from conventional batteries in residential buildings, such as capacity-loss over time and aging, as well as the alternative application and challenges of hydrogen-based storage for the domestic sector. The paper considers a test case study where an analysis is performed on the practicality of hydrogen-based storage, in addition to lithium-ion battery storage. Various scenarios are considered based on solar installation sizes, self-consumption, battery capacity, autonomy rates and grid extraction. A detailed analysis is carried out on both thermal and electrical demands of a residential household, which also includes the energy performance and applications of heat pumps. While the obtained results from various scenarios are compared and analysed, these anticipate that the potential integration of hydrogen can improve the autonomy rate of residential buildings, The cost of hydrogen storage is expected to reduce significantly, opening opportunities for hydrogen application.
