Husum/Reußenköge, 5 September 2019 – At HUSUM Wind 2019, GP JOULE will present its expertise as a power upgrader at Stand 1C09. Concrete power-to-X projects implemented by the corporation – which is also successful in EPC and construction as well as operation management of wind and PV plants – show how wind power can be profitably diversified into new products for the mobility, heat and industrial markets. GP JOULE's reference project Bosbüll illustrates this upgrading of electricity into green heat and green hydrogen. What is more, a space check provides landowners with a trend-setting analysis so as to enable them to profitably plan new plants for tomorrow's energy market.
“The crucial issue facing operators with regard to the energy market is: where do I put my kilowatt hours? Innovative power-to-X projects are the solution. The key lies in networking technology, players and markets – tailored to the individual starting situation,” explains GP JOULE CEO Ove Petersen. “A network structure of this type involving different partners is highly complex. We have many years of project development and plant construction expertise along the entire value chain of renewables in the electricity and heating market: we provide marketable electrolysis technology via subsidiaries, we are active investors ourselves and we operate highly effectively in rural areas, so we are reliable service provider and partner for citizen wind farms, institutional operators and municipalities,” says Petersen.
Reference project involving a wind farm and the municipality of Bosbüll demonstrates how it works: heating and fuelling with wind power and a decentralised network
Visitors to the HUSUM Wind trade fair can find out more at the GP JOULE stand by viewing the concrete example of Bosbüll in Schleswig-Holstein, for example. First-hand experience is shared by John-Heinrich Ingwersen, Managing Director of Bosbüll Wind Park. In connection with this project, GP JOULE has developed three marketing channels: (1) The direct supply of Bosbüll households via their own power grid; (2) the use of electrolysers for the production of hydrogen and its marketing via hydrogen mobility, and (3) implementation of the municipality’s own regenerative local heating grid, including heating with wind power in power-to-heat technology.
