Lancaster signs first offtake agreement with Heliogen

Heliogen has signed a contract with Lancaster to produce green hydrogen to serve its growing fuel needs, marking the Californian city’s first hydrogen offtake agreement.

The green hydrogen will be produced at Heliogen’s Proxima hydrogen facility in Lancaster and will leverage Heliogen’s technology using AI and advanced computer vision software to concentrate sunlight with mirrors, producing carbon-free hydrogen with significant economic development potential.

As part of the agreement, Heliogen will provide green hydrogen to the city and will certify its carbon intensity, a measure of the CO2 emitted per kilogram of hydrogen produced. Proxima could ultimately help support other projects within the city and region, including sustainable aviation fuel, and sales and distribution of hydrogen fuel for industrial processes such as long-haul trucking, cement, and mining.

The agreement between Heliogen and Lancaster builds upon the previously announced MOU between the parties to establish a clean hydrogen generation facility, and is expected to contract hydrogen conforming to SAE J2719 hydrogen fuel cell vehicle specifications at a $10/kg offtake price.
