TORONTO — StormFisher Hydrogen Ltd. (StormFisher) and kiwi AG (kiwi) announce that they have entered into a partnership to advance the development of green hydrogen related projects in North America and Europe.
StormFisher has a track record of developing long-term, renewable energy facilities that continue to operate today. This includes operation of the largest industrial biogas plant in North America, generating 225,000 gigajoules (GJ) of renewable natural gas, 2.85 megawatts (MW) of renewable electricity, while processing over 135,000 metric tonnes of organic waste per year. For reference, the average Canadian home uses around 90 GJs per year for home heating uses.
With StormFisher’s renewable fuels project development background, it will support kiwi’s plans to build and operate large scale Power to X (PtX) projects throughout the EU (European Union). This includes facilities using renewable electricity to produce low carbon fuels such as compressed hydrogen, renewable natural gas, liquefied renewable natural gas, green methanol, and other liquid fuels or chemicals. Each proposed facility will convert up to 300 MW of renewable electricity into green hydrogen and produce upwards of 1.5 million GJs or 90,000 metric tonnes of green methanol using biogenic carbon dioxide from various industries.
“Being the leading pioneers in PtX and renewable fuels for the transport sector since more than 10 years, the kiwi team is looking forward to the collaboration with the StormFisher Hydrogen team,” says Hermann Pengg, founder and CEO of kiwi AG. “StormFisher have been very successful in developing renewable fuels projects within the last decades. Joining forces will boost our plans in rolling out PtX projects. Kiwi is happy to have StormFisher Hydrogen as a partner who’s experienced in project development in the North American market and for its expertise in the legislative frameworks to enable us as partners to develop market-specific setups that realize the common goal of #Netzero#.”
Through the collaboration, StormFisher will in turn gain access to kiwi’s technical and operational maintenance data from running the world’s first industrial power-to-gas plant in Werlte, Lower Saxony. The plant has been generating up to 1,300 m3 of green hydrogen per hour since 2013 using 6 MW of alkaline electrolyzers and biogenic carbon dioxide from a nearby food waste anaerobic digestion facility.
