Caterpillar will begin offering Cat generator sets capable of operating on 100% hydrogen, including fully renewable green hydrogen, on a designed-to-order basis in late 2021. More immediately, the company will launch commercially available power generation solutions that can be configured to operate on natural gas blended with up to 25% hydrogen.

The new solutions build upon Caterpillar’s hydrogen solutions portfolio, including Solar Turbines’ gas turbine generator sets, which have run on high hydrogen blends for decades and are capable of operating on 100% hydrogen today. The ability to work with hydrogen fuel helps address customers’ carbon-reduction goals.
