The sheer abundance of hydrogen on this planet, along with the gas’ status as a clean burning fuel, makes it an appealing decarbonization tool. The alternative fuel source can be derived from water and has uses across sectors including food processing, fertilizer, medicines and rocket fuel. But while hydrogen produced with renewable energy offers a sustainable fuel for these applications, the global supply of hydrogen is still mainly derived from natural gas, according to a recent article by TriplePundit.
Cummins Inc. has made another critical step toward reaching its climate goals and a decarbonized future, as the company was awarded $5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office, for the automation of solid oxide electrolyzer cell (SOEC) and stack assembly.
This award allows Cummins to further its efforts as a leader in alternative power and a pioneer in green hydrogen technologies.
Cummins Inc. electrolyzers producing low-carbon green hydrogen are part of an innovative effort in Germany to create a carbon neutral urban neighborhood.
The Neue Weststadt (New West Town) neighborhood is in Esslingen, Germany, a city of more than 90,000 people in the southern part of the country. The neighborhood spans over 100,000 square meters with over 450 apartments, office buildings and commercial space. According to officials, a neighborhood of this nature, on a converted freight yard and some three years in the making, has never been attempted before.
Technology from global power leader Cummins will play a key role in creation of the world’s first hydrogen refueling station capable of supplying green hydrogen directly to ships, cars, trucks and industrial customers.
