    ACES Delta Hub: Groundbreaking production and storage facility

    Hydrogen

    Located in Delta, Utah, ACES Delta is adjacent to a power plant using green hydrogen to produce electricity with lower lifecycle carbon emissions. Producing, storing and transporting green hydrogen at utility scale involves several key steps and technologies, including collaboration among stake holders. Is the first phase of the project on schedule? What challenges have been overcome by innovation and collaboration? What are the next steps to eventually deliver 100% green hydrogen-powered, carbon-free electricity?
