Kulturhuset Vingen: House of culture with solar power combined with fuel cells

The solar power system at Kulturhuset Vingen is a part of a futuristic energy system were the sun's energy is stored in a little box. The environmental friendly power that the solar panels and the wind power stations produce will together with fuel cells and hydrogen gas be stored, to be used when the wind subsides and the sun is clouded. ExoTech is one of the companies that were involved in the futuristic project.

To store sun shine in a box

The installed system at the house of culture in Torslanda, Sweden, will work as a demo project. By testing the technology in a real and suitable project as this, it will be easy to evaluate the potential of solar power in combination with fuel cells in larger projects. ExoTech share Västcells positive attitude towards the technology.

Sadly the sun doesn't always shine, therefore the energy must be stored. A solution for this is hydrogen gas in combination with fuel cells. Hydrogen gas is not an energy source itself but is used to store and transport the power that the solar panels produce. The gas can be stored in pressure tanks, in liquid form or bound to metal hubris. When the hydrogen gas is turned back into electricity it's used as fuel for the fuel cells. In the reaction both heat and electricity is generated. The energy transformation in the fuel cells is about double as effective as the one in a petrol engine, and the only by-product is water.

ExoTech and Sharp delivered the solar modules.
