The green hydrogen sector continues to expand as a trio of US companies recently announced their plan to develop a 500kg per day green hydrogen production facility in Houston, Texas.
This facility, expected to be operational by Q2 2024, aims to contribute to the growing demand for clean energy solutions.
Scalable Hydrogen Energy Platform (SHEP™)
At the heart of this project lies the innovative Scalable Hydrogen Energy Platform (SHEP™), which boasts a modular design. This design allows for scalability beyond 5,000kg of hydrogen per day, catering to the increasing demand for green hydrogen.
What makes SHEP™ particularly noteworthy is its small 3,000 sq. ft. footprint, making it suitable for installation even in limited spaces. Additionally, the clever design ensures continuous production during off-peak hours, maximizing efficiency.
This ambitious green hydrogen project is a collaboration between HNO International (HNIO), Element One Energy, and Pneumatic and Hydraulic Company (PHC).
The chosen site for this milestone project is in Texas, a region known for its rich renewable energy resources.
While the complete details of the electrolyser manufacturer are yet to be revealed, the facility will be powered by renewable energy sourced from the grid using “green tags.” This innovative approach allows indirect access to renewable energy, ensuring a sustainable and environmentally friendly production process.
Moreover, the partners aim to complete the hydrogen facility by Q2 2024.
This Texas facility is just the beginning for the ambitious trio. With plans for additional installations beyond 2024, they are poised to solidify their position as leaders in the hydrogen energy infrastructure sector.
Advancements in hydrogen infrastructure are crucial for the widespread adoption of green hydrogen as a clean energy solution. The development of a 500kg green hydrogen production facility in Texas signifies a significant step forward in this journey.
The modular design of the Scalable Hydrogen Energy Platform (SHEP™) offers scalability, flexibility, and efficiency, paving the way for larger-scale production. As the trio of US companies works towards completing this project by Q2 2024, the stage is set for a future powered by sustainable and carbon-neutral energy sources.
