The 485-MW Long Ridge Energy Terminal combined cycle power plant has transitioned to running on carbon-free hydrogen by way of blending hydrogen in the gas stream, allowing the plant to burn 100% green hydrogen over the next decade. This is the first hydrogen-burning power plant in the U.S. and the first that blends hydrogen in its gas turbine in the world. Long Ridge teamed with GE Power for the $588-million project to use an H-class gas turbine, which can initially burn 15% to 20% hydrogen before transitioning to 100% hydrogen over time. Long Ridge claims the project will be able to support energy storage that can accommodate seasonal fluctuations. Projects such as these can make a drastic difference in meeting zero emissions goals.
