Sustainable grid-scale energy storage solutions, Energy Vault Holdings has selected global manufacturer of highly engineered equipment, Chart as the supplier of an integrated liquid hydrogen storage and fuel delivery system.

The system will be for a green hydrogen long-duration energy storage system (BH-ESS) used in conjunction with a utility-scale battery to provide back-up power to the city of Calistoga, California, USA.

Chart’s integrated fuel system includes liquid hydrogen (LH2) bulk storage tanks and vaporisation equipment used to store the liquid hydrogen on-site and feed to the fuel cells in Energy Vault’s system to power the city of Calistoga.

The hybrid generation/storage facility will not emit localized pollutants such as nitrogen oxides and particulate matter when generating electricity to power the microgrid and this represents a significant step toward realizing the California Public Utilities Commission’s vision of cleaner forms of microgrid generation.

Marco Terruzzin, chief commercial and product officer, Energy Vault says: ‘Chart has deep expertise in advanced solutions to store liquid hydrogen and their technology is an ideal fit for the hybrid green hydrogen energy storage system we are building for PG&E in Calistoga. We have assembled a team of best-in-class partners with proven track records to ensure successful deployment of this innovative microgrid project which will deliver clean, reliable power to the Calistoga community.’

‘We are pleased to support Energy Vault and PG&E’s Calistoga, California project, a meaningful step in the buildout of hydrogen as a key part of the energy transition. The efficiency, scale and storage duration of our hydrogen fueling solution for Energy Vault’s solution brings together two companies’ respective expertise to provide a cleaner form of microgrid generation,’ adds Jill Evanko, CEO and president of Chart.
