September 3, 2020 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 98, ISSUE 34

 

The Douglas County Public Utility District in Washington State has selected the engineering firm Cummins to build an electrolyzer that will use excess electricity from the Wells Dam to produce hydrogen gas.

Cummins’s water-splitting technology comes largely from its $290 million purchase of the fuel cell and H2 production technology firm Hydrogenics in 2019.
