Siemens Energy, Duke Energy and Clemson University have teamed up to study the use of hydrogen for energy storage and as a low- or no-carbon fuel source to produce energy at Duke Energy’s combined heat and power plant.
Located at Clemson University in South Carolina, the H2-Orange pilot will be supported by a $200,000 grant from the US Department of Energy and will combine the experience of Siemens Energy as the technology developer, Clemson University as the beneficiary and Duke Energy as the owner and operator of the asset.
Project partners today (10th Dec) said they have plans to ramp up in March 2021 and include studies on hydrogen production, storage and co-firing with natural gas. The studies will include multiple forms of hydrogen production.
As part of its contribution to the project, Siemens Energy will study the use of its Silyzer electrolyser to produce hydrogen fuel to help power the existing SGT-400 natural gas turbine at the Clemson plant.
