EX LIGHTING FOR THE HYDROGEN INDUSTRY
Hazardous Area Lighting | Raytec Case Study
Renewable energy, including technologies such as wind and solar, is an obvious solution for a clean energy future. However, with the sun setting daily and days where there is little to no wind, we need clean fuel to fill in those energy gaps. As energy demand continues to rise, the increased need to store energy is a necessity to keep up with increasing demand.
Battery technology has seen huge advances in recent years, and there is also increasing demand for hydrogen fuel. The utilisation of hydrogen emits only water vapour and warm air and offers many other benefits over other clean fuels. However, the process of producing and storing hydrogen gas is high-risk and precautions must be taken to ensure that any environment where hydrogen is present is safe.
