A rendering of a community microgrid shows what a proposed system for Calistoga might look like.

Pacific Gas & Electric and Swiss company Energy Vault on Jan. 5 announced a partnership to build and operate a utility-scale battery-plus-green-hydrogen long-duration energy storage system in Calistoga, California.

The facility, with a minimum of 293 MWh of dispatchable carbon-free energy, is touted as the largest green-hydrogen microgrid project in the U.S. The proposal integrates a short-duration battery system, for grid forming and black-start capabilities, with long-duration fuel cells, plus a green liquid-hydrogen storage system.
