The first integrated energy station in China’s Greater Bay Area officially opens

Sinopec announced on December 6 that the first integrated energy station in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has officially been put into operation. The ‘Sinopec Guangzhou Dongming third Road Integrated Energy Service Station’ integrates a number of energy supply services, such as refuelling, hydrogenation, charging, photovoltaic power generation, chain convenience, and automotive service.

The integrated energy service station is located in Guangzhou. At present, it has two hydrogenation machines with a daily hydrogenation capacity of 500kg, which can meet the hydrogen demand of 60 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. What’s more, the station is also equipped with two 240KW DC charging piles, which can charge 4 electric vehicles at the same time and provide charging services more than 80 times a day.

The station also has more than 100 square metres of distributed photovoltaic power generation devices with an estimated annual power generation capacity of 11,000 KWH, which can reduce carbon dioxide emission of 2,500 tonnes per year, and can meet the daily production, operation and domestic electricity needs of the station.

At present, Sinopec is comprehensively promoting the construction of China’s hydrogen energy industry chain and is striving to build China's first hydrogen energy company. Sinopec recently began construction of the world's largest photovoltaic green hydrogen production project in the city of Kuqa.

It is reported that the ‘Kuqa Green Hydrogen Demonstration Project’ in Xinjiang is the first large hydrogen production project using photovoltaic power generation directly in China, with a total investment of nearly 3 billion yuan (£355m). It mainly includes photovoltaic power generation, power transmission and transformation, electrolytic water hydrogen production, hydrogen storage, and hydrogen transmission.

The project will build many facilities, including a photovoltaic power plant with an installed capacity of 300MW and an average annual generating capacity of 618 million KWH, an electrolytic water hydrogen production plant with an annual production capacity of 20,000 tonnes, a hydrogen storage tank with a hydrogen storage capacity of about 210,000 cubic metres, a hydrogen transmission pipeline with a hydrogen transport capacity of 28,000 cubic metres per hour, and a supporting power transmission and transformation.

This project is expected to be completed and put into operation in June 2023. The green hydrogen will be supplied to Sinopec Tahe Refining and Chemical Co., Ltd. to replace the existing natural gas and fossil energy for hydrogen production. It is estimated that carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by 485,000 tonnes per year, which will contribute an average of 130 million yuan (£15.4m) to local GDP and generate more than 18 million yuan (£2.1m) in tax revenue.

Sinopec says it is moving towards net zero emissions and striving to build itself into the world's leading clean energy chemical company. In the course of the 14th Five-Year Plan period, Sinopec plans to build 1,000 hydrogenation stations, 5,000 changing stations, and 7,000 distributed photovoltaic power stations. At present, 38 hydrogenation stations, more than 900 changing stations, and more than 900 distributed photovoltaic power stations have been built.
