Hydrogen technology to be integrated into solar microgrid at Pearl Harbor base

A solar microgrid system installed at a Pearl Harbour military base is set to welcome hydrogen production, storage and utilisation technology as part of a US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) project.

BWR Innovations revealed it had signed a two-year subcontract to develop a hydrogen fuel cell microgrid (H2MG) that could be replicated by the US Department of Defence.

The H2MG project will see gaseous and liquid hydrogen production, storage and utilisation technologies integrated into an existing 1.5MW solar microgrid system at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickman (JBPHH) in Hawaii.

Having been in operation since 2016, the Pacific Energy Assurance Renewables Laboratory (PEARL) microgrid has been demonstrating how military facilities can meet energy needs, mission assurance and cyber security.
