SoCalGas, UCI In Hydrogen Gas Project

Southern California Gas (SoCalGas) and the University of California, Irvine (UCI) said this morning that the two are in a “proposed collaboration” to blend clean, renewable hydrogen into the campus natural gas system. According to the two, the project will help better understand how clean fuels like renewable hydrogen could be delivered at scale over California’s existing natural gas system, either to existing customers connected to the gas grid, or to generate clean electricity in zero-emission fuel cells to create . The new project will use hydrogen produced by what is known as an electrolyser, which converts water into hydrogen. The two said the demonstration project would power existing residential and light commercial equipment, including water heaters, boilers, stoves and ovens in academic buildings, student facilities and apartments.
