The large-scale storage of hydrogen in salt caverns modelled on todays natural gas storage is a promising approach to storing renewable energy over a large power range and for the required time period. An essential subsystem of the overall gas storage is the surface facility and in particular the compressor system. The future design of compressor systems for hydrogen storage strongly depends on the respective boundary conditions. Therefore this work analyses the requirements of compressor systems for cavern storage facilities for the storage of green hydrogen i.e. hydrogen produced from renewable energy sources using the example of Lower Saxony in Germany. In this course a hydrogen storage demand profile of one year is developed in hourly resolution from feed-in time series of renewable energy sources. The injection profile relevant for compressor operation is compared with current natural gas injection operation modes.
