H2@scale in Texas and Beyond: Creating a Renewable Hydrogen Energy Network Demonstrating Integrated Hydrogen Production and End-use Technologies

In a U.S. Department of Energy H2@Scale project, GTI Energy, along with Frontier Energy and the University of Texas-Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM), is co-leading a project that will design, build, and operate one of the largest collections of renewable hydrogen production and end-use technologies ever assembled at one site. This renewable hydrogen energy network, located in Austin, Texas will help pave the way for eventual build-out of clean hydrogen networks or “hubs” by demonstrating their use in an integrated system. The Austin hydrogen “proto-hub” includes multiple clean hydrogen production technologies such as the conversion of renewable natural gas, wind, and solar to hydrogen for use in a fuel cell for critical power generation applications, for passenger vehicle fuel and even for powering fuel cell aerial drones.

The H2@Scale in Texas and Beyond project is also assessing the techno-economics for hydrogen production, storage, delivery, and end-use industrial and commercial applications in and around Port Houston. A Port Houston planning framework will identify near-term applications to deploy hydrogen as well as the policies, regulations, and economics needed for successful commercialization of this emerging clean energy solution. More than twenty Texas-based industry, government, and educational institutions are actively supporting this project.
