Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is launching the US’ most comprehensive end-to-end hydrogen study and demonstration facility, which will examine the future potential of the zero-carbon fuel hydrogen as a renewable energy source for not only PG&E customers but the entire global natural gas industry. The centerpiece of the study, known as Hydrogen to Infinity (H 2 ∞), is a large-scale project that will blend hydrogen and natural gas in a stand-alone transmission pipeline system. H 2 ∞ will enable PG&E and its partners (Northern California Power Agency [NCPA], Siemens Energy, the City of Lodi, GHD Inc., and University of California at Riverside) to conduct a complete study of different levels of hydrogen blends in a multi-feed, multi-directional natural gas pipeline system that is independent from its current natural gas transmission system. The dedicated facility will allow for a controlled and safe study of hydrogen injection, storage, and […]
