DT Midstream Inc., a natural gas pipeline and storage provider based in Detroit, and Mitsubishi Power Americas Inc., a provider of power generation and energy storage solutions, have entered into a joint development agreement (JDA) to advance clean hydrogen energy development projects in the U.S.
Through the agreement, the companies will identify, develop, and deploy projects that integrate Mitsubishi Power’s generation and hydrogen technologies with DT Midstream’s energy infrastructure development and operational capabilities to decarbonize utility, transportation, and industrial sectors.
“Our goal with DT Midstream is to make clean, affordable hydrogen widely available for power generation and other sectors,” says David Hunt, senior vice president of new generation systems sales and commercial operations at Mitsubishi Power. “This collaboration will add to the ‘hub and spoke’ hydrogen infrastructure we have been creating with partnerships throughout North America.”
The collaboration will employ Mitsubishi Power’s Hydaptive hydrogen package, which integrates renewable power, gas turbines, hydrogen, and other energy storage technologies. DT Midstream will provide gas delivery experience and leverage assets such as interstate and intrastate pipelines, gathering systems, and storage systems.
Opportunities through the JDA include offering hydrogen in liquefied or compressed form for multiple applications such as power generation and transport, as well as steelmaking, refining, and fertilizer manufacturing.
“Mitsubishi Power’s generation equipment and hydrogen project development advancements make them an ideal strategic partner for DTM as we work to expand our low carbon energy transition platform and provide clean energy solutions to customers,” says David Slater, president and CEO of DT Midstream.
“As the demand increases for low carbon energy such as hydrogen, we have an opportunity working with Mitsubishi Power to apply our natural gas infrastructure development expertise to hydrogen projects. We look forward to combining our complementary technologies and expertise to deliver clean energy solutions to customers.”
Mitsubishi Power Americas is headquartered in Lake Mary, Fla. and employs more then 2,300 power generation, energy storage, and digital solutions experts and professionals. Energy storage solutions include green hydrogen, battery energy storage systems, and services. Mitsubishi Power also offers intelligent solutions that use artificial intelligence to enable autonomous operation of power plants.
Over the summer, DTE Energy in Detroit completed a plan to spin-off its Non-Utility Gas Storage and Pipelines business into a new, independent, publicly traded company called DT Midstream. Both companies are listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
