ABSTRACT
This article presents information related to the use of wind energy to generate electricity and produce hydrogen in the island of Unst, Scotland. Unst has the world's first community-owned hydrogen production plant. Two 15-kW wind turbines provide cheap and clean electricity and surplus power goes through hydrogen production and storage equipment, which is bottled for future use. The project Promoting Unst Renewable Energy hopes to expand hydrogen's applications.
