Hydrogen Energy Storage is Big in California

The state of California has in recent times been setting a roadmap towards a smart energy future, and the latest measure involves hydrogen energy storage. The California Hydrogen Business Council has announced a project that seeks to promote the use of hydrogen as an energy storage medium. It hopes to eventually see greater take up of the technology as a result of the initiative.

The latest move complements the California Air Resources Board’s stated goal of achieving a third of electricity generation from renewable energy by 2020. By the end of the decade as well, grid operators are required to implement grid-scale energy storage and possess 1.3GW of energy storage capacity.

The president of CHBC, Mark Abramowitz, was bullish in his forecast, believing that “hydrogen energy storage will play an increasingly important part of the future energy mix in California as we extend the use of renewable power.” Ultimately, the organisation hopes to accelerate the state’s progress towards its smart energy future through the increased adoption of hydrogen energy storage.
