Duke Energy unveils solar-powered green hydrogen project plant in Florida


Duke Energy will soon break ground on what it says will be the first demonstration project in the US to successfully create clean energy using an end-to-end system to produce, store, and combust 100% green hydrogen.

The North Carolina-based energy company developed the system with Sargent and Lundy and GE Vernova. Now developed, the technology will be deployed at Duke Energy’s DeBary power plant in Volusia County, Florida to form the project.

A complete end-to-end system, the technology will begin with the existing 74.5MW DeBary solar plant providing clean energy for two 1MW electrolyser units that will separate water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen atoms.

The resulting oxygen will be released into the atmosphere, while the green hydrogen will be delivered to nearby, reinforced containers for safe storage.
