Abstract The ETI’s energy system modelling shows that flexible power generation systems comprising hydrogen generation with CCS, intermediate storage (particularly using salt caverns) and flexible turbines are attractive options for the UK. In the model described here, hydrogen is supplied from coal and biomass fired gasifiers and steam methane reformers, with CO2 captured for storage. This permits the use at high load of capital intensive and relatively inflexible conversion and CCS equipment, filling hydrogen storage when power is not needed, and releasing hydrogen at short notice through turbines when power is at a premium.

This executive summary covers the objectives and main findings of the five work packages, and suggests the next steps.
