SoCalGas and Bloom Energy agree to lead hydrogen blending project

Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) and Bloom Energy have announced they will power a portion of Caltech’s grid via a hydrogen project.

The project will leverage existing infrastructure with electrolysers and fuel cell technology, potentially creating microgrids that deliver resilient power and can help safeguard business and such from power disruptions.

Using water from Caltech’s service line, it will then be run through Bloom Energy’s solid oxide electrolyser which uses grid energy to create hydrogen. The produced hydrogen will be injected into Caltech’s natural gas infrastructure upstream of Bloom’s fuel cells, creating a 20% blend of hydrogen and natural gas. This is then converted into electricity and distributed for use on campus.
