SJI and Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind collaborate on green hydrogen

In: Windfarms
SJI and Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind (Atlantic Shores) have formed a partnership to collaborate on a green hydrogen pilot programme, which will research, monitor, and analyse the deployment of hydrogen technology and natural gas blending in New Jersey.

Atlantic Shores is pursuing the development of a portfolio of offshore wind generating facilities on the Atlantic and Ocean County coasts, and SJI and Atlantic Shores have entered into a memorandum of understanding to explore utilising excess electricity generated from the wind projects to create green hydrogen.

“Through the proposed green hydrogen pilot program, we look forward to helping our region realize the full value chain of offshore wind by multiplying the clean energy impact through hydrogen blending in our natural gas system,”
said Mike Renna, SJI president and chief executive officer. “This project will further our strategy of pursuing decarbonization initiatives to advance our renewable energy goals and will add to our track record of successful clean energy endeavors such as advanced energy efficiency offerings, methane leak reduction investments and our conservation incentive program (CIP).”

“Our team at Atlantic Shores is very excited to partner with New Jersey’s SJI on this innovative project,”
said Joris Veldhoven, Atlantic Shores’ Commercial Director. “Our pilot project will be an important steppingstone to enable a wider application of green hydrogen in New Jersey and will expand opportunities for research and academic collaborations, such as Atlantic Shores’ collaboration with the Laboratory for Energy Smart Systems (LESS) program at Rutgers University, and serve to anchor more green innovation in the State.”

Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind is a partnership between Shell New Energies US LLC and EDF Renewables North America, where together they have years of technical, operational and commercial energy expertise.
