Scattergood Power StationLos Angeles to convert largest gas plant to hydrogen

It is proposed to install fuel-flexible combined cycle equipment at the Scattergood Generating Station in Los Angeles to burn significant amounts of renewable energy-sourced hydrogen to replace the generating capacity currently provided by three conventional steam turbine generators that burn natural gas.

The long term goal for the city is to replace all natural gas powered power stations with hydrogen burning boilers.

Although any move away from fossil fuels is to be welcomed, our view is that such large scale power generation should only form part of the supply resilience strategy to back up the primary demand delivered by the 'Best Available Solution'.

The National Grid should only use green hydrogen power generation as a second last resort (since it is expensive compared with all of the other means of electricity supply within the "Best Available Solution") ahead of only non-renewable electricity via international interconnectors.

Under the Sustainable Party strategy, an agreed number of gas power stations converted to green hydrogen use will have electrolysers installed to generate hydrogen during periods of surplus renewable energy generation, with an agreed quantity of pressurised green hydrogen will be stored at each of these plants as part of the UK overall electricity supply resilience strategy.
