ACES hydrogen project to advance lower carbon future expected to begin commercial operation in 2025

The Advanced Clean Energy Storage (ACES) hydrogen project is expected to begin commercial operation in 2025. It will supply hydrogen to the Intermountain Power Agency for its IPP Renewed Project, which aims to transition to lower carbon power generation.

Storing hydrogen at the site allows it to be dispatched as needed. This, in turn, allows for a higher use of renewables in the energy mix. The first project could generate up to 100 metric tonnes of hydrogen per day that will be stored in salt caverns.

“Chevron is bringing its expertise in project execution; safe, reliable operations; and building large energy value chains to ACES,” Jain said. “We are learning a lot from executing the first project at ACES—this experience sets us up with a competitive advantage as we develop other lower carbon hydrogen opportunities.”

The ACES Project will use an electrolyzer like this one to convert renewable resources, such as wind and solar, into hydrogen and then store that hydrogen for later use.
