GE and CVEC to launch green hydrogen technology roadmap

The project will be the first step towards converting the facility into a hydrogen fuel-dependent power plant.

By Umesh Ellichipuram

US-based energy company GE has signed a memorandum of understanding with Cricket Valley Energy Centre (CVEC) to launch a green hydrogen technology roadmap.

How can hydrogen ride the sustainability wave?

The Hydrogen market is expected to expand significantly in the next few years – GlobalData has tracked more than 43.6 mtpa of total active and upcoming low carbon hydrogen production capacity (green and blue hydrogen). As the industry develops and the cost of producing hydrogen drops, demand is expected to increase significantly. As a result, countries across the world are announcing much needed supporting policy framework for hydrogen. While refining and ammonia production have traditionally been the key consumer sectors for hydrogen, new uses such as transport and energy storage are set to influence the market. While green hydrogen presently has a small share in the overall production mix, it is poised to increase given the ambitious targets announced by various countries. GlobalData’s report provides insights into key issues in the emerging hydrogen space, such as:
  • Hydrogen value chain
  • Demand drivers
  • Key application areas
  • Technology trends

The H2 Roadmap project aims to convert CVEC’s power plant in Dover Plains, New York, to zero carbon emission green hydrogen.

The companies will develop the H2 Roadmap and advance a demonstration project to reduce carbon emissions at the combined cycle power plant, which is managed by Advanced Power Asset Management.

Planned to begin next year, the project will be the first step towards converting the facility, currently powered by natural gas, into a fully hydrogen fuel-dependent power plant.

GE Gas Power CEO Scott Strazik said: “We are pleased to work with CVEC to support their efforts in achieving carbon neutrality across their operations while demonstrating the collaboration essential for a decade of action to reduce carbon emissions from the power generation sector.

“GE’s gas turbine technology, building on decades of our leadership in low-British thermal unit (Btu) fuel operations, including hydrogen fuels, validates the important role existing technologies and assets can play in reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change.”

GE said that it would initially work on one of three GE 7F.05 gas turbines installed at CVEC by introducing 5% hydrogen blended with natural gas for several weeks.

The initiative will also support New York State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), which requires the electricity sector to reach zero-carbon emissions by 2040.

Advanced Power Asset Management president Chuck Davis said: “With this agreement, we will begin to define a roadmap for the conversion of recently constructed natural gas-fired power plants to lower and [eliminate] carbon fuels as an important initiative to maintain system reliability as New York increases investment in intermittent wind and solar to meet the CLCPA goals.”
