Bloom Energy produced hydrogen fuel using CSP technology from Heliogen.
Energy Vault signed a $520 million deal to supply 1.6 GWh of energy storage to DG Fuels to produce renewable hydrogen and a variety of fuels.
The new rates will help to support the expansion of two of the utility’s prominent solar programs, 30-by-30 and the SolarTogether community solar initiative.
Plans call for converting the utility’s newest generating unit from all natural gas to a blend of up to 30% hydrogen, and eventually to 100% hydrogen.
Also on the rise: Mindful action is needed to increase Hispanic participation in solar, and a Hy Stor venture is the latest to join the growing list of hydrogen projects in the Gulf States.
The facility is expected to produce 110 million kg of green hydrogen annually and store more than 70 million kg in underground salt caverns.
Also on the rise: SolRiver Capital buys an Oregon solar development portfolio, Swell Energy expands its distributed power plant model, and a shift in focus is coming to a DOE loan program.
The Louisiana project is expected to create 170 permanent jobs and represents Air Products’ largest-ever investment in the U.S.
Also on the rise: DOE back a Shell-led group in a liquid hydrogen test project, and registration is open for our 2021 Roundtables USA event.
The project aims to advance the U.S. as a leader in LH2-based international supply chain development and facilitate the commercialization of both blue and green hydrogen export opportunities.
