Description

Tallgrass Energy, LP has closed on the purchase of a 75 percent membership interest in Escalante H2 Power (EH2 Power). EH2 Power is developing a first-of-its-kind hydrogen-to-power project at Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association, Inc.’s Escalante Generating Station near Prewitt, New Mexico, by converting the retired coal-fired power plant into a clean hydrogen-fired power generating facility.

Tallgrass acquired its membership interest in EH2 Power from Denver-based Brooks Energy Company. The ownership of Newpoint Gas, LLC will retain a 25 percent membership interest in EH2 Power and continue to partner with Tallgrass in EH2’s development of the hydrogen conversion project at the Escalante Station.

Tallgrass is working alongside other industry leaders as part of a multi-member conglomerate to develop a hydrogen demonstration project that will supply a natural gas-fired power generation facility with green and/or blue hydrogen. In recognition of the project’s potential, the Wyoming Energy Authority (WEA) awarded the team a grant that is helping fund their efforts.
