ABERDEEN INTERNATIONAL (TSX:AAB, F:A8H) AND AES-100 INC. IDENTIFY NUCLEAR PLANTS AS ADDITIONAL MARKET POTENTIAL FOR ITS HYDROGEN PRODUCTION
Aberdeen International Inc. has provided an update regarding its recent acquisition, AES-100 Inc. (see press releases dated Feb. 1, 2021, Feb. 11, 2021, March 3, 2021, and March 10, 2021).
AES-100 is currently investigating whether hydrogen production could, under the right conditions, offer a solution to U.S. and European nuclear reactors from retiring early as well as support newer reactors to run at their highest efficiency.
While nuclear energy supplies 19 per cent of the energy consumed in the United States and about 25 per cent in the European Union, many nuclear power plants find it hard to compete with cheaper natural gas and renewable energy generation, later being often subsidized by government programs.
Nuclear plants appear to be a perfect component to produce green hydrogen, while ensuring the nuclear plants power output to be stable and therefore maximizing efficiency. Excess electricity and steam produced by the nuclear reactor could be used to produce hydrogen in times when a reactor would have to be tuned down due to less demand from the grid.
The European Union imports 55 per cent of its energy ($350-billion) and has a goal to cut its GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions to 40 per cent below 1990 levels. Therefore, nuclear power will remain an important part of Europe's green energy output and could transform into a major piece in the hydrogen strategy. AES-100 will continue to investigate opportunities and markets for hydrogen.
AES-100 has acquired exclusive rights and all intellectual property pertaining to T2M Global's advanced electrolyzer system for the production of hydrogen from diluted syngas. T2M Global is the world's leader in clean energy technology using hydrogen with zero carbon footprint and no greenhouse gas emissions.
