The U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE) awarded General Electric (GE) for two projects to develop and test equipment and systems needed for hydrogen combustion in gas turbines.

Selected by DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management, the projects are worth more than $12 million.

The projects are among GE’s continuing work to support hydrogen combustion. GE said the work will “accelerate the path toward a 100% hydrogen combustion future.”

The company recently announced the first hydrogen burn with GE’s H-Class turbine at the Long Ridge Energy Terminal, a large multimodal facility in Hannibal, Ohio. Long Ridge, located on the border of Ohio and West Virginia, entered commercial operation in October 2021.
