Capstone Energy, a leading energy provider through microgrid and microturbine solutions, announced this Wednesday that it has extended its technology partnership with Baker Hughes.
Firstly, on Earth Day 2021, Capstone announced it had established a partnership with Baker Hughes. Did so to further advance the energy transition. It would leverage energy storage products with the addition of Baker Hughes’ 5 MW; 12 MW, and 16 MW industrial gas turbines.
Capstone said it had chosen Baker Hughes as a qualified network partner because of their similar focus on low emissions; long service intervals, low lifecycle costs, and vigorous hydrogen development.
Also, the company’s technology allows Capstone Green Energy to serve customers with energy needs that exceed the capacity of their own low emission microturbine-based energy solutions.
Consequently, the parties expanded the partnership so that Capstone could deliver Baker Hughes’ technology to more territories in the US; Canada, and case-by-case projects outside North America.
About the matter, Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Green Energy, said. “Naturally, Capstone is excited to offer our customers custom-tailored energy solutions based on their specific needs, beyond the capacity our own technology provides.”

Capstone Energy and Baker Hughes with shared energy transition goals
He also remarked. “But we are especially pleased to do so with a partner whose technology provides the kind of reliability and cost savings we promise and one whose focus aligns with our green energy mission.”
Indeed, the two companies maintain common goals for helping companies achieve energy efficiency standards; therefore, helping them reach increased reliability, cost savings, and environmental improvements.
Moreover, the extended partnership will allow Capstone to provide up to 60 MW of power; while maintaining high reliability, long service intervals, and very low emissions.
Furthermore, the shared goal of the parties extends to producing a commercially viable turbine system capable of 100% hydrogen. In fact, Baker Hughes has commercially available gas turbines capable of various levels of blended fuel gas from 10% up to 100% hydrogen.
At the same time, Capstone is lab testing a 30% hydrogen – 70% natural gas configuration with a goal of commercial release by March 31, 2022.
