Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Intermountain Power Plant: The future role of utility-scale hydrogen turbines

April 22, 2020 | Case Study

With high efficiencies, fuel cells have historically generated the most interest for hydrogen-based power generation. However, stationary fuel cells have struggled with high upfront costs, poor material performance, and short lifetimes. On the other hand, combined-cycle gas turbines have emerged as highly efficient and flexible power-generating options. Furthermore, while often overlooked, gas turbines can run on blends of natural gas and hydrogen and have the potential to be converted to run on 100% hydrogen. Additionally, gas turbines scale better than fuel cells and are better suited to producing power on the hundreds-of-MW scale.
