Title: Renewable Hydrogen for Carbon-Free Data Center

Abstract

NREL, in collaboration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise, has developed a system model for simulating both grid-tied and island microgrid power for hydrogen production and data center operation (assumed at 50 MW, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week).

  • The Renewable Resource Data Center (RReDC) has been developed at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) under the Resource Assessment Program. Initial offerings are broadband solar irradiance data bases such as the Daily Statistics Files and Typical Meteorological Years from the 1961--1990 National Solar Radiation Data Base, the West Associates data gathered in the Southwest US from 1976 through 1980, the New NOAA Network that replaced SOLMET from 1977 through 1980, and the one-minute data from four universities under the SEMRTS program. Unique data sets are the thousands of measured solar spectra and measurements of the solar intensity in themore » circumsolar region. All these data are provided with their accompanying documentation and online help. Other products such as Shining On and Solar Radiation Data Manual for Flat-Plate and Concentrating Collectors are available in their entirety, as well as glossaries, bibliographies, maps, and other user helps. The Uniform Resource Locator (URL) address of the RReDC is ``http://rredc.nrel.gov.`` Users should have World Wide Web (WWW) browsing software (such as Mosaic), which supports Forms and the necessary browsing viewers.« less
  • This publication includes 43 composite data products (CDPs) produced for next generation hydrogen stations, with data through the fourth quarter of 2014.
  • Low carbon martensitic stainless steels are to be considered as a less expensive pipeline material in North Sea oil and gas production. Although it is generally accepted that the failure mechanism for such materials in sour service is hydrogen assisted cracking, nearly no hydrogen permeation data are existing up to the present. Thus, hydrogen transport in a typical low carbon martensitic stainless steel has been investigated in the delivered and also in the quenched condition at free corrosion in the NACE TM 0177-96 standard solution saturated with H{sub 2}S up to various levels. As a result, it turned out thatmore » the diffusion coefficient in the quenched condition is by the factor five higher than in the state as delivered, but the subsurface concentration is being decreased by an order of a magnitude. Such diffusion data represent valuable input parameters for modelling hydrogen assisted cracking and for life time prediction of martensitic stainless steel pipelines.« less
