Sempra Energy’s San Diego Gas & Electric discloses plans to place two long-duration green hydrogen storage projects into service by 2022, the first such projects in California.
According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, “If realized by 2022, the projects would become the U.S. power industry’s first long-duration hydrogen storage facilities relying on renewable energy to create hydrogen through the process of electrolysis”
“The projects are two of a host of new environmental, community, and grid-modernization initiatives the Sempra Energy utility launched to “help forge the path to carbon neutrality in California,” says SDG&E CEO Caroline Winn.
“It’s imperative that we move more quickly to address climate change with strategic investments and partnerships because the stakes are so high if we fail to take collective action now,” said Caroline Winn, SDG&E’s chief executive officer. “As an energy company, we have an important role to play in the fight against climate change by not only doing our part to reduce emissions from our own operations, but to also develop and encourage the use of energy innovations that can make a difference.”
