Hydrogenics’ technology converts surplus renewable electricity into hydrogen gas. This renewable hydrogen can then be injected, stored, and transported in North America’s existing and expansive natural gas pipeline systems. With existing high efficiency natural gas-fired generators, this stored renewable energy can then be brought back to the electricity grid as renewable power – where and when it is needed most.
This project will build a power-to-gas demonstration plant that will convert electricity into hydrogen. At 5MW, the plant will be the largest power-to-gas demonstration project in North America and will form the building block for future utility-scale deployments.
