Renewable energy sources like wind and solar play a critical role in carbon reduction. But the power they supply can fluctuate. Cummins offers an innovative grid-balancing solution that quickly converts excess renewable energy into hydrogen as a natural gas replacement.
We’re working with leading utility companies worldwide to pioneer natural gas replacement and storage solutions. Our electrolyzers are capable of quickly modulating electrical energy input (under one second) over the total power range, making them ideal for grid balancing. Cummins is also developing a new generation of PEM electrolyzers to meet the future demands of power-to-gas systems.
Cost and climate effective
The benefits of hydrogen as a natural gas replacement are numerous. By leveraging existing infrastructure to convert and store renewable energy, our technology is among the most cost-effective ways to fight climate change.
