Siemens Energy receives certification for H2-Ready power plant concept

Siemens Energy has emerged as the first company worldwide receive the “H2-Ready” certification for power plantsdeveloped by TÜV SÜD.

The certification for obtaining certification was developed in collaboration with subject matter experts from Siemens Energy. The certification increases investment security for utilities. Natural gas-fired combined cycle power plants (CCPP) currently being built or planned are expected to run partially or fully on hydrogen fuel in the future. This means that utilities that plan to purchase this type of power plant will expect a statement of the plant’s ability to use hydrogen as a fuel. Although the H2-Ready certification does not certify existing power plants, it provides a roadmap that describes how plants can be converted over time to co-fire hydrogen or even burn pure hydrogen.
