The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has awarded nearly $13 million to three hydrogen storage projects. Hydrogen Industry Leaders investigates how this aims to advance renewable energy integration and cut emissions in New York.
With hopes to reduce emissions from the New York Independent System Operation gird, $12.5m is destined for Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station, LLC which plans to demonstrate nuclear hydrogen fuelled peak power generation, paired with long duration hydrogen energy storage unit.
Power to Hydrogen is set to receive $100,000 to develop a reversible fuel cell system for hydrogen production and energy storage, which has been called the Clean Energy Bridge.
In addition to this, a further $100,000 will be made available to ROCCERA to evaluate and demonstrate a commercially viable solid oxide electrolyser cell (SOEC) prototype for clean hydrogen production.
It comes after it was confirmed that New York is aiming to become a hydrogen hub, as the state signed a multi-state agreement with 40 hydrogen ecosystem partners to develop a proposal for its ambitions, to receive US federal funding to develop a regional hydrogen hub.
