    Cummins to build largest electrolyzer in the United States (Washington State)



    Cummins using hydrogen technology to enable renewable energy for public utilities in Washington with the largest electrolyzer in the United States

    Cummins.com | Aug 26, 2020 | Douglas County, Washington (USA)

    Global technology and power solutions leader Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) will provide its 5-megawatt PEM electrolyzer to enable renewable energy for the Douglas County Public Utility District (Douglas County PUD) in Washington state. The Cummins electrolyzer will be dedicated to producing hydrogen from renewable energy and will be the largest, as well as first of its kind in use by a public utility, in the United States.

    Expected to be operational in 2021, the new renewable hydrogen facility allows the Douglas County PUD to manufacture commercial hydrogen using electrolysis to harvest hydrogen from water from Wells Dam on the Columbia River. The PEM electrolyzer system, which stands for proton exchange membrane, takes the excess renewable energy and through a chemical reaction splits water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen acts as an energy carrier and the oxygen is released into the air. The hydrogen can then be stored in a gas or liquid state to be used in a multitude of applications, including fuel cell electric mobility. The electrolyzer is powered by clean hydroelectricity, so the production of hydrogen does not generate any carbon emissions.

    “It takes enterprises, governments and utilities working together, like what we have done with Douglas County PUD, to make alternative power a reality and promote a more sustainable world. Douglas County PUD is just one example of how Cummins is expanding the energy market and driving new power solutions for our customers.”

    The electrolyzer technology provides a means to address one of the largest dilemmas in the renewable energy industry, which is how to store the energy when it’s not in demand. Cummins’ PEM electrolyzers, like Douglas County PUD’s electrolyzer plant, enables utilities to store the excess energy that they would typically sell off to the market at a financial loss, or not harness at all, and instead store that energy to sell into a new green hydrogen market. Additionally, it creates a way for utilities to engage in new market opportunities outside of their typical service area, removing growth barriers often faced in the industry.

    "Douglas County PUD is excited to work with Cummins’ Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Technologies on our 5-megawatt hydrogen electrolyzer project. This hydrogen plant will create efficiencies for our Wells Hydroelectric Project and create a new renewable hydrogen gas resource for our community,” said Gary Ivory, General Manager of Douglas County PUD. “As the first renewable hydrogen production plant in Washington State, we understand the importance of great partners, and we believe Cummins’ will help us build a successful project.”...MORE: https://www.cummins.com/news/release...blic-utilities






    Finally the US begins to wake up to the Hydrogen Energy REVOLUTION. Not a single post here about the biggest US H2 news all year- Nikola Motor, nothing about Germany or Australia's National H2 strategy... while Americans sleep... Soon, North Americans can get their H2 Fuel Cells from China, the country that North American Companies received tax credits to outsource American jobs to, by both (D)'s and (R)'s. What kind of nation gives away it's manufacturing base? A dumbed-down nation led by criminals and fools. That kind of nation.

    Craziest speculative market ever. Nikola Motors has NO product or revenue and now valued more than Ford Motor.
    It is a dog $#@! fraud. Worth Zero. Elaborate research from probably the best short selling research firm on the planet. https://hindenburgresearch.com/nikola/

    Not surprising you think Nikola is "the biggest news of the year"

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    GM spent $2 billion on a bag of magic beans. There's a reason they needed a bailout.

    Personally,, I have been looking for Hydrogen as a Fuel since the early 70s.

    I would really love to see the Desert dwelling HeadChoppers to lose their only source of income. and have to eat the oil.
