Siemens Energy has teamed up with Intermountain Power Agency to carry out a conceptual design examine on integrating a hydrogen vitality storage system into a complicated class mixed cycle energy plant.
The venture has been awarded a $200,000 grant from the US Department of Energy, considered one of 4 funding awards obtained by Siemens Energy in late 2020 to advance hydrogen functions within the US energy technology sector.
The examine is about to start in March this yr on the 840MW Intermountain Generating Station in Delta, Utah.
The objective of this examine is to investigate the general effectivity and reliability of CO2-free energy provide involving large-scale manufacturing and storage of hydrogen. Additionally, the examine will analyze features of integrating the system into an present energy plant and transmission grid, such because the interplay with subsystems, sizing and prices.

“The examine can be designed round Siemens Energy’s Silyzer know-how, which makes use of electrolysis to generate hydrogen. The scope of our analysis will embrace hydrogen compression, storage and clever plant controls,” stated Tim Holt, govt board member at Siemens Energy.
“This is an thrilling alternative to work with the Intermountain Power Agency on integrating the cost-efficient use of CO2-free hydrogen in an influence plant on a big scale foundation. The outcomes will profit clients, advance the data about utilizing hydrogen within the US energy sector, and in the end put us one step nearer to decarbonizing electrical energy manufacturing.”
The Intermountain Generating Station is transitioning from coal to pure gasoline, with plans to combine 30% hydrogen gas at start-up in 2025 and 100% hydrogen by 2045. The venture is to offer 840MW of electrical energy to clients in Utah and Southern California.
“By switching from coal to a combination of pure gasoline and hydrogen we will cut back carbon emissions by greater than 75%,” stated Dan Eldredge, common supervisor of Intermountain Power Agency. “We are dedicated to being a pacesetter within the transition to a clear vitality future whereas profiting from the numerous vitality infrastructure already in place on the Intermountain Power Project. This examine will assist pave the best way for the profitable transition to net-zero carbon energy technology.”
