Need a utility-scale storage alternative to Lithium Ion batteries? Try Hydrogen.
The Advanced Clean Energy Storage (ACES) project in Delta, Utah, plans to produce hydrogen using excess renewable electricity and store it in two new underground salt caverns.
The stored hydrogen would then be sold for use in transportation, heavy industry and refineries, and….a re-powered coal plant.
The IMP https://lnkd.in/grc7fXRh will re-power away from coal by 2025 and burn a 70 percent-30 percent mix of natural gas and hydrogen. By 2045, the plant would(theoretically) transition to 100 percent hydrogen.
The project is planned to store several months worth of solar and wind overproduction from the Western U.S. and potentially make that electricity (in the form of hydrogen fuel) available in other seasons of the year when there are varied energy demands.
The project will be able to store 150 GWh worth of hydrogen, or about the same amount of battery storage DOE expec
