Accelera electrolyzers to power Chevron solar-to-hydrogen project

Accelera™ by Cummins will supply Chevron New Energies with a 5-MW electrolyzer system for the production of electrolytic hydrogen in Lost Hills, CA. The project leverages the strategic agreement between Cummins and Chevron to stimulate the commercial and industrial adoption of hydrogen and other lower-carbon-intensity fuels in North America.

The Chevron facility will consist of two Accelera PEM electrolyzers to produce hydrogen on-site by utilizing solar power and non-potable produced water from Chevron’s existing assets at the Lost Hills Oil Field in Kern County.

The electrolyzer system will generate over two tons of hydrogen per day at fuel-cell-grade purity, enough to fuel 80 freight trucks up to 600 miles.

 “We’re excited to continue our collaboration with Chevron as we work toward shared goals of advancing the hydrogen ecosystem and lowering emissions,” said Andreas Lippert, Vice President and General Manager of Electrolyzers for Accelera. “This new hydrogen production project in California will continue building on Accelera’s hydrogen innovation and demonstrates the kind of partnership that enables the shift to zero emissions.”
