National Grid, Town of Hempstead in Clean Hydrogen Project

National Grid and the town of Hempstead, N.Y., said they are in a joint clean hydrogen project.

The HyGrid Project located in Point Lookout on Long Island will blend green hydrogen into the existing distribution system to heat about 800 homes and fuel 10 municipal vehicles, the electricity, natural gas, and clean energy delivery company said.

National Grid said it will expand the existing hydrogen facility, which was developed in 2009 to provide locally produced green hydrogen for vehicles, to blend hydrogen for heating homes and transportation at the same time.

Hempstead has existing wind and solar equipment at the site for generation of hydrogen fuel for its vehicles, and National Grid has an adjacent facility that provides energy for the Point Lookout neighborhood, the company said. These facilities will be combined, and National Grid will install new equipment that will increase the hydrogen production capacity in the town.
