Duke Energy to Spearhead Innovative Green Hydrogen Project in Florida

By Editor


In a significant step towards the advancement of clean energy solutions, electric utility giant Duke Energy has announced its plans to develop an end-to-end system for the production, storage, and utilization of 100 percent green hydrogen in Florida.

This pioneering project is set to be a collaboration between Duke Energy, construction management and consulting firm Sargent and Lundy, and General Electric’s unit, GE Vernova.

Renewable Energy did not reveal investment details.

The project is slated to be established at Duke Energy’s existing facilities in DeBary, as per the company’s official statement. Green hydrogen, created by the process of electrolysis, which splits water using renewable energy sources, is expected to play a pivotal role in the global initiative to decarbonize various industries, especially in the realm of transportation.

Construction of this groundbreaking demonstration project in DeBary is scheduled to commence later this year and could span approximately one year for completion, as confirmed by Duke Energy. The innovative system will start with the utilization of the existing 74.5-megawatt (MW) DeBary solar plant to provide clean energy to power two 1-MW electrolyzer units.

Duke Energy has set its sights on having the new green hydrogen system fully operational and integrated into its operations by the year 2024, marking a significant milestone in the journey towards sustainable and eco-friendly energy solutions. This project underscores the company’s commitment to leading the way in the development and implementation of clean energy technologies to combat climate change and drive a greener future.
