There is a trend just beginning of utilities adding hydrogen generation units, so this thread will follow that.

Here's an interesting (and mysterious!) one:

BlackLight Power signs sixth utility deal to produce power from water

http://green.venturebeat.com/2009/07/30/blacklight-power-signs-sixth-utility-deal-to-produce-power-from-water/

Quote:

For background, BlackLight says it lowers the energy level of hydrogen atoms below ground state — something most scientists have deemed impossible. For this reason, many have speculated that BLP’s process is nothing more than an elaborate hoax. But it’s hard to assume false advertising when now six utilities have signed on to distribute the power it creates.

DOE signs deal for California hydrogen energy plant


Quote:
The Department of Energy on November 6 signed an agreement with a private venture to build a $2.3 billion plant that will demonstrate both hydrogen-fueled power generation and carbon sequestration.

The plant, to be built in California's Kern County, will demonstrate conversion of coal and petroleum coke into a hydrogen-carbon dioxide gas blend. The hydrogen will be used to fuel a 250-megawatt combustion turbine power plant.


If Homer Simpson goes to work at this hydrogen plant, would he say DOOOEEEEEE...?

Sun Catalytix Developing Solar Home Hydrogen Production

Quote:
Sun Catalytix has just received $1 million in venture capitol funding and is also expecting to receive an additional $4.1 million in funding to develop a catalyst that will help solar energy in homes split water into hydrogen and oxygen.

Note: I am currently buying stock in this company; however, I think this is newsworthy on its own.

ClearEdge raises $11M to make fuel cells common home appliances

http://green.venturebeat.com/2010/01/25/clearedge-works-to-make-fuel-cells-a-common-household-appliance-raises-11m/

Quote:
The Oregon companies flagship fuel cell, called the ClearEdge5, turns propane or natural gas into hydrogen, which is then turned into electrical power and heat. The heat is recirculated into water heaters and HVAC systems, so it doesn’t go to waste. Because the natural gas isn’t being burned at a power plant, the system cuts down drastically on harmful emissions and delivers about 5 kilowatts of clean energy — enough to power a home or small business.

Quote:
Sun Catalytix Corporation, a company that is developing catalysts that use intermittent renewable energy, including solar and wind energy, to split water (H2O) into storable hydrogen and oxygen—a process that mimics photosynthesis—has signed a contract for more than $4 million in federal funding from the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E).

Blacklight Power Plans for 2010-13

http://nextbigfuture.com/2009/12/blacklight-power-plans-for-2010-2013.html

They are now indicating that they will have continuous run prototypes in 2010. This is a delay from previous talk about a commercial system in 2009. However, if they make their continuous run prototypes with 50KW to 75KW of power available for independent testing in 2010 that would go a long way to reducing the controversy surround Blacklight Power. Pilot plants at the megawatt level are planned for 2011-2013.

FuelCell Energy Announces Joint Development Program for a Small Scale Direct FuelCell(R) Power Plant


http://www.marketwatch.com/story/fuelcell-energy-announces-joint-development-program-for-a-small-scale-direct-fuelcellr-power-plant-2010-11-30?reflink=MW_news_stmp

Quote:
DANBURY, Conn., Nov 30, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- FuelCell Energy, Inc. /quotes/comstock/15*!fcel/quotes/nls/fcel (FCEL 1.20, +0.07, +6.20%) , a leading manufacturer of ultra-clean high efficiency power plants using renewable and other fuels for commercial, industrial, government, and utility clients, today announced that it will jointly develop a small-scale Direct FuelCell(R) (DFC(R)) power plant with its South Korean partner, POSCO Power. The power plant will target the fast-growing commercial applications market segment, particularly in Asia. POSCO Power will fund the $5.8 million program in stages as performance milestones are reached, with an initial funding of $2.9 million for design and development of a smaller scale fuel cell stack.

Due to their highly efficient power generation, lack of pollutants and quiet operation, fuel cell power plants are well-suited for commercial buildings located in urban environments. Fuel cells efficiently generate power using an electrochemical process that does not involve combustion. The lack of combustion results in virtually zero pollutants and quiet operation. Fuel cell generated power can make use of available clean energy incentives, and can compete favorably with commercial and residential electricity rates in many regions of the world.
