World’s first utility-scale, zero-emissions hydrogen power plant


This is about as cleantech as it gets. A New Mexico firm plans a power plant to use renewable energy power like wind and solar to create hydrogen to run turbines. The big advantage here is the hydrogen can be stored and then used on demand to create electricity.

The 10-megawatt New Mexico plant would be designed to smooth the natural variability of the energy created by wind and solar generators, creating enough electricity to power about 6,000 homes and businesses.
