Hydrogen solutions company Plug Power Inc. announced plans to build a green hydrogen production plant in partnership with Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. and Brookfield Renewable Corporation.
The plant, located along the Susquehanna River in south-central Pennsylvania, will utilize 100% renewable energy from Brookfield Renewable’s Holtwood hydroelectric facility as a part of a previously announced collaboration. The plant is projected to produce about 15 metric-tons of emissions-free liquid hydrogen per day.
Plug Power’s plant is expected to be online by late 2022. Construction is scheduled to start by the first quarter of 2022.
The plant is expected to help in the decarbonization of the broader transportation and logistics industries in the Northeast and the mid-Atlantic regions.
