The drive for a renewable, carbon-free energy transition reaches individual residences and consumers with small-scale hydrogen production and utilization.
Emerson announces the availability of a White Paper describing how they assisted Southern California Gas (SoCalGas) with a hydrogen microgrid project.
Hydrogen use is growing rapidly worldwide to provide a clean source of energy in a variety of industrial applications, but until now the residential market has had limited use. This situation is changing as utility companies worldwide are exploring delivery solutions to enable their customers to use hydrogen for emission reduction.
SoCalGas, a regulated subsidiary of Sempra Energy, is working with Emerson to deploy digital technologies, software, and services to demonstrate the resiliency and reliability of a hydrogen microgrid for southern California utility consumers.
The [H2] Innovation Experience is one of the first projects of its kind in the U.S., and it shows how this carbon-free gas made using renewable electricity can be consumed in pure form, or blended with natural gas to fuel clean energy systems of the future. Now operating, this demonstration project provides a path to reducing emissions from home energy use—another critical contribution to a cleaner energy future.
