Press Release

CHBC Releases White Paper on Power-to-Gas and Hydrogen Energy Storage
Document outlines high potential energy storage technology option able to provide renewable zero-emission baseload power, fuel, and heat for California

Los Angeles, CA – October 8, 2015 – Today, on National Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Day, the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) has released its official White Paper “Power-To-Gas: The Case For Hydrogen”, outlining the feasibility and economics of energy storage solutions using hydrogen and methane as energy carriers. The White Paper is a project spearheaded by the HydrogenEnergy Storage Group in the CHBC and member companies.

To support the integration of ever-increasing amount of intermittent renewable generation, California is faced with a growing need to deploy utility-scale storage solutions. The White Paper is intended to provide policy makers and other interested parties with an overview of the concept and potential of hydrogen-based energy storage.  It covers key aspects of this technology, including needs for grid scale energy storage, power-to-gas solutions, economic analysis, use cases and existing projects. Access the White Paper here >>.


California is where hydrogen gets down to business. And the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) is the vital link between hydrogen-technology developers, businesses, energy leaders, government, and infrastructure providers. A 501(c)(6) non-profit organization, members share a common vision of clean energy and transportation fueled by hydrogen.
