Global renewables programmer Invenergy has introduced its very first green hydrogen project.

The five-acre Sauk Valley Hydrogen project in Illinois will certainly produce green hydrogen by making use of power from Invenergy's co-located solar plant as well as Ohmium International low-carbon, electrolyser modern technology.

Invenergy vice president origination brand-new modern technologies Matt Nicholls stated: "The Invenergy group is incredibly excited to launch our initial green hydrogen venture as we remain to lead the transition to a clean energy future.

" Green hydrogen is a cutting-edge, zero-carbon service that enables us to decarbonize markets across the economic climate through clean power.

" Green hydrogen projects can scale swiftly and effectively to reach megawatt to gigawatt applications.

" We are proud to be dealing with Ohmium International as we launch this green hydrogen development."

The Sauk Valley Hydrogen Project is anticipated to produce as much as 52 tonnes of hydrogen annually.

The project will have capacity to accumulate to 400kg of hydrogen on site and also can provide hydrogen to Invenergy's 584MW Nelson Energy Center.

Sauk Valley's loading capability will enable any type of excess hydrogen created at the facility to be shipped as well as made use of offsite.

Ohmium International chief executive Arne Ballantine said: "We're thrilled to companion with Invenergy, one of the largest as well as most well-respected renewable energy designers worldwide, on their first green hydrogen project.

" We hold a shared vision, as well as we are eager to match their industry proficiency with our intuitive, low-carbon, PEM electrolyzers to additional advance domestic green hydrogen production."

Ohmium's leading edge modular PEM electrolyzer can creating 6kg of hydrogen per hour and will certainly utilise renewable resource generated by Invenergy's regional solar plant to power the process.

This project will demonstrate the capability of Ohmium green hydrogen generation paired with the power of Invenergy's renewable resource facility.

Sauk Valley Hydrogen, situated in Nelson Township, Illinois, is Invenergy's twenty-first growth in the state.

Invenergy, whose international headquarters lies in Chicago, adds a fifth modern technology to its Illinois portfolio that currently consists of, wind, solar, as well as thermal generation as well as innovative energy storage projects.

The project is readied to begin in the coming months and is anticipated to be completely operational by the end of 2022.
