Accelera™ by Cummins, the zero-emissions arm of Cummins Inc. [NYSE: CMI], has announced its partnership with Chevron New Energies to provide a cutting-edge 5-megawatt (MW) electrolyzer system for producing low carbon intensity (LCI) hydrogen in Lost Hills, CA. This initiative marks a significant step towards expanding the hydrogen infrastructure in the United States and aligns with the collaborative efforts of Cummins and Chevron to foster the adoption of hydrogen, renewable natural gas, and various other low-carbon fuels across North America. Set to be powered by solar energy and utilizing non-potable water from Chevron's Lost Hills Oil Field in Kern County, the facility will feature two Accelera proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers. These systems are designed to generate over 2 tons of hydrogen daily at fuel-cell-grade purity, sufficient to power 80 freight trucks for up to 600 miles each. Andreas Lippert, Vice President and General Manager of Electrolyzers for Accelera, expressed enthusiasm about deepening their collaboration with Chevron, emphasizing the project's role in promoting the hydrogen ecosystem and reducing emissions. Electrolyzers, by using electricity to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen, offer a path to emissions-free hydrogen when powered by renewable sources such as wind or solar. This green hydrogen serves as a clean, high-density energy source for various transportation and industrial applications. Accelera's electrolyzer technology is already operational in over 60 hydrogen refueling stations worldwide, including the world's first multimodal station in Antwerp, Belgium, capable of servicing cars, trucks, buses, and ships. Notably, Accelera powers one of the largest PEM electrolyzer systems globally in Bécancour, Quebec; a 25MW system for Florida Power & Light Company's Cavendish NextGen Hydrogen Hub set to launch in early 2024; and a 90MW system for Varennes Carbon Recycling in Quebec, aiming to convert non-recyclable waste into biofuels and circular chemicals.
