GENCOMM: GENerating energy secure COMMunities through smart Renewable Hydrogen

The GenComm project will address the energy sustainability challenges of distant communities across North-West Europe (NWE) through the implementation of hydrogen production and storage using renewable energy sources. Three hydrogen technology pilot plants will be developed, utilizing the three main NWE renewable energy sources (wind, solar and bio) to cover the local heat, power, transport and storage demand. Based on these pilot plants, technical and financial models will be developed, leading into a Decision Support Tool (DST). The DST will pave the way for energy security in remote European communities.

In GenComm, BURN will cooperate with four universities (Belfast Metropolitan college, National University of Ireland Galway, ENSICAEN and INSA Rouen Normandie), one research institute (IZES gGmbH) and four industrial partners (Viridian Energy Supply Limited, Williams Industrial services, Pure Energy Centre and TK Renewables).
