Hydrogen has great future potential:
1) use renewables or nuclear power to crack water or methane (natural gas) as a source of clean, utility scale energy generation
2) use hydrogen for storage of various sizes
3) use in fuel cells for vehicles or distributed generation.
More and more electric and gas utilities are starting pilot projects. Public Utilities Fortnightly just interviewed Entergy’s Rod West on their strategic locational advantage and their long term vision for hydrogen….
And, Power Magazine covers Entergy in more depth.
Add to Entergy…..SCE, Sempra, LADWP, OUC, National Grid, FP&L and more with pilots.
If you’re not thinking about a hydrogen pilot project yet, don’t wait too long. Hydrogen may be a “major differentiator” between market winners and losers. Over-stated?
Love to see your thoughts!
