Hydrogen production plans for Ireland's Valentia Island

An example of a small community seeking to produce hydrogen for their own use is Ireland’s Valentia island off the coast of County Kerry. Valentia Island Energy Co-operative have recently completed their ambitious local Energy Masterplan, and the production of hydrogen is detailed as a key strategic objective.

The next step for the Co-Operative will be to complete a feasibility study, which will be undertaken by Energy Co- Operatives Ireland in early 2019.

The development of GenComm’s Decision Support Tool (DST ) will be very timely for this project, and will be of significant benefit in making hydrogen production a reality for this small but remote community.
