Energy Storage & Hydrogen
Flexibility is key to supporting future energy
The growth in renewable solar and wind energy has emphasized the need for flexibility. Flexibility to reliably balance the load on the energy grid with the ability to rapidly adjust output while using cost effective fuels which also minimize carbon output.
Gas turbines with a retrofit for hydrogen operation offers a low carbon solution to support the stability of the energy grid. Our High Hydrogen Gas Turbine Retrofit project provides a solution capturing the needs for energy storage, in the form of hydrogen, and flexible power generation. Making use of the existing installed gas turbine base with a modest retrofit provides a compelling and cost-effective solution.
High Hydrogen Retrofit Project
The major objective of the High Hydrogen Retrofit Project is to develop a cost-effective ultra-low emission (sub 9ppm NOx and CO) combustion system retrofit for existing installed gas turbines in the output range of 1MW to 300MW. At the center of this innovative high-technology project is the patented and novel aerodynamic trapped vortex FlameSheet™ combustion technology platform. Fuel flexibility and stable operation from 100% natural gas to 100% hydrogen and any mixture thereof, is a key requirement.
