Emily Holbrook of Environment+Energy Leader writes on SoCalGas’ renewable hydrogen efforts.
- Southern California Gas’ hydrogen innovation hub is a 2,000 square foot facility that is making breakthroughs in clean hydrogen production.
- The company has partnered with the University of California, Irvine to demonstrate how clean hydrogen fuel can be safely blended into existing natural gas infrastructure on the university’s campus.
- While the project is still in its infancy, SoCalGas’ success could pave the way for a wider adoption of hydrogen in our energy portfolio.
“The project’s electrolyzer, which uses solar power to split water, has now produced its first full kilogram of renewable hydrogen – the first ever produced by SoCalGas — which is intended to provide power when solar isn’t available. One kilogram of hydrogen, roughly equivalent to a gallon of gasoline, emits only water as a byproduct.”
