First full integration of hydrogen production, distribution, storage and use is underway

By Scott Jenkins |

The recently launched H2@Scale project is integrating a number of elements necessary for the commercial-scale integrated production and use of renewable hydrogen. Hosted by the University of Texas at Austin (www.utexas.edu) and funded through the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) program at the U.S. Department of Energy, the H2@Scale project involves nine industry partners, including Frontier Energy Inc. (San Ramon, Calif.; www.frontierenergy.com), GTI, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Shell, SoCalGas, Toyota Motor North American, Air Liquide and others. The project represents a first-of-its-kind integration of commercial H2 production, distribution, storage and use. Project partners will generate zero-carbon H2 onsite via electrolysis (powered by solar and wind), and reformation of renewable natural gas from a Texas landfill. It is first time that both sources of renewable H2 will be used in the same project, H2@Scale leaders say. “Each of the individual hydrogen-related technologies already exists,” explains Nico Bouwkamp, H2@Scale project manager at Frontier Energy. “But with this project, we are taking a systematic approach to tying everything together and demonstrating that the cost of H2 energy can be lowered…
