H2B2 Electrolysis Technologies (H2B2) launched SoHyCal, the largest operational renewable hydrogen production plant in North America to date, located in California (United States) and powered entirely by renewable energy, the company reported.
Specifically, SoHyCal is fully operational in its first phase, taking advantage of renewable energy generation and electrolysis technology, producing up to one ton per day of renewable hydrogen fueled by electricity. from biogas.
In the second phase it will switch to solar energy, producing a total of three tons of renewable hydrogen per day powered by photovoltaic energy, in the second quarter of 2024. This amount of hydrogen will cover the needs of up to 210,000 vehicles. in a year or 30,000 urban buses.
H2B2 USA CEO Pedro Pajares emphasized that the project represents “a pillar of California’s commitment to the development and promotion of clean and sustainable hydrogen technologies.” SoHyCal Background
H2B2, a global green hydrogen company founded by Felipe Benjumea, former president of Abengoa, has obtained a grant of 3.96 million dollars (about 3.72 million euros) from the California Energy Commission (CEC) for the SoHyCal project in Clean Transportation Program.
This support has been instrumental in supporting the production of up to one ton per day of 100% emissions-free hydrogen to supply hydrogen refueling stations in the San Joaquin Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area in California (United States).
