11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. :: Power to Hydrogen

Hydropower, a mature and well-established form of renewable energy, has long been recognized for its significant contribution to global electricity generation as a base load. With more Solar, Wind, elimination of coal, together with more government regulations and restrictions, the need to manage that resource more effectively has never been more important. An innovative solution for better resource management is harnessing hydropower to produce hydrogen.

Power to Hydrogen is an innovative concept that involves converting surplus electricity, typically from renewable sources like wind or solar, into hydrogen through a process called electrolysis. This hydrogen can then be stored, transported, and utilized as a clean energy carrier in various sectors. This relatively new industry, however is a challenge to implement with new codes to follow and unclear categorization and uncertainty by AHJs. We will address the Good, Bad and the Ugly as well as Lessons Learned for you to consider in implementing your own Hydrogen generation project.

Len Anderson, PE, Senior Distribution Systems Engineer, Douglas County PUD

12:45– 1:45 p.m. :: Lunch Break

1:45– 2:45 p.m. :: Large-Scale Electrolysis

In this session, we will delve into the latest advancements, innovations, and challenges of electrochemical technology and its application in the era of sustainable energy. Being the most abundant element in the universe, hydrogen is a great candidate for powering a wide range of applications, from transportation to steel production. Harnessing hydrogen sustainably and economically is still a challenge, though. We will examine technological advancements, economic viability, and environmental benefits associated hydrogen production via water electrolysis. One of the key technologies that can contribute to realizing the Hydrogen Rainbow is the RuggedCell™ system, designed specifically for large-scale industrial hydrogen production. It combines the principles of electrolysis with rugged manufacturability-oriented engineering and inexpensive materials to create a robust and reliable hydrogen production system.

Laurent Nassif, CEO Renewable Solutions, Research Director, CEATI

4:00 – 5:00 p.m. :: Case Study: Hydrogen Blending Experiment EPRI

Utilities have and are deploying reciprocating internal combustion engine (RICE) power plants for dispatchable generation due to their ability to run on a variety of liquid and gaseous fuels, fast start and load change capability, and good efficiency at full and partial loads. As power companies continue to grow their renewable power assets to help meet decarbonization goals, RICE assets in turn will need to provide lower-carbon options. As a result, RICE manufacturers are actively developing solutions for new sustainable fuels (e.g., low-carbon hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol)—both for new power plants and conversions of existing assets. For hydrogen, RICE manufacturers have conducted hydrogen-natural gas (NG) co-firing tests for years, but these tests have generally been conducted at small scale or in a test laboratory environment. While these tests have provided valuable insights in managing the fuel supply and operating the engine, it was recognized that significant knowledge could be gained by testing the blended fuel at a utility-scale, grid-connected RICE unit.

This presentation will examine the blending of hydrogen with NG on one of the three 18.8 MWe Wärtsilä 18V50SG RICE units at Upper Michigan Energy Resources Corporation’s A. J. Mihm Generating Station. A full test plan was developed and enacted, and measurements taken were used to assess the engine’s performance and emissions over a range of operating conditions when using a hydrogen-NG blend. For each of the engine loads evaluated, a 100% NG run served as the reference case to benchmark the performance and emissions of the blended fuel cases. Results and lessons learned on design, testing, and safety will be discussed.

11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. :: Beyond Conventional Energy: Exploring Green Ammonia Potential

By combining the production of green hydrogen through low-carbon energy generation and the synthesis of ammonia, we can create green ammonia, a versatile energy carrier. One of the key advantages of green ammonia is that it is a drop-in replacement fuel and hydrogen carrier that can be shipped economically over long distances. These characteristics position green ammonia as one solution to the geographic mismatch of prime renewable generation regions from energy demand regions, further strengthening the demand for low-carbon and renewable energy. The presentation will delve into the benefits of ammonia for industrial uses, emphasizing its minimal carbon intensity and potential to eliminate traditional sources of greenhouse gas emissions. We will examine its compatibility with existing infrastructure and the challenges associated with its widespread adoption, along with ongoing research and development efforts to address these challenges.
