California Utility Plans Largest U.S. Green Hydrogen Network for LA

  • Utility would develop pipelines to deliver hydrogen to L.A.
  • Natural gas utility seeking ways to reduce greenhouse gasses

Sempra Energy’s Southern California Gas Co. utility is proposing to develop what it says would be the largest U.S. green hydrogen pipeline system, part of an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help California meet its ambitious climate targets. 

The new pipeline network would deliver so-called green hydrogen produced from renewable energy in the eastern part of California to the Los Angeles region, where the clean-burning fuel could be used for power generation, heavy-duty trucks and manufacturing, Maryam Brown, president of SoCalGas, said in an interview.
