The project aims to demonstrate that the hydrogen fuel cell system can provide 1.5 MW of backup power to meet or exceed expectations set by current diesel engine systems.
The system will be fueled by low-carbon-intensity hydrogen, the companies said.
The Biden administration is making massive investments in hydrogen technologies as part of its effort to decarbonize the American power grid by 2035. More than $9 billion for research and deployment of clean hydrogen is included in the bipartisan infrastructure bill that was signed into law last week.
Funding for hydrogen in the bipartisan infrastructure bill:
$8 billion for four clean hydrogen hubs to demonstrate the production, processing, delivery, storage, and end-use of clean hydrogen
$500 million for clean hydrogen manufacturing and recycling to support a clean hydrogen domestic supply chain
$1 billion for demonstration, commercialization and deployment to decrease the cost of electrolyzers
