How does a wind farm make hydrogen?

It’s all about separating the Hs in H2O. But the key is using green energy to do it. Nobody sees a wind turbine and thinks, “Just look at that hydrogen farm!” But the massive wind-energy project being planned in Stephenville is exactly that, or even more accurately, an ammonia farm. The project features 164 wind turbines that would … Continue reading How does a wind farm make hydrogen?

Hydrogen could change the way we fuel our lives

Last week, Canada signed a major energy project with Germany that, once built, will transform the windswept Port au Port peninsula in western Newfoundland and Labrador into a hydrogen-producing energy powerhouse. The first phase of the project involves the construction of 164 new wind turbines in one of the windiest corners of the country. The … Continue reading Hydrogen could change the way we fuel our lives

World readies for green hydrogen

Hydrogen has been with us forever but with a much lower profile than oil and gas, coal, electricity and other energy sources. But that is changing. Hydrogen, which powered the first internal combustion engine more than 200 years ago, has become an integral part of the modern refining industry: It’s light, storable, energy-dense, and produces … Continue reading World readies for green hydrogen

The need for grants and clear regulation for green hydrogen projects

Green hydrogen production projects are flexible enough to adapt to all the challenges of the energy transition. From taking advantage of the surpluses of a wind energy or photovoltaic energy power plants to avoid curtailments, to continuously producing hydrogen for industry and transport or for seasonal energy storage. Of course, grants and clear regulation are … Continue reading The need for grants and clear regulation for green hydrogen projects

Pushing green hydrogen into commercial operation

Renewable energy in Australia relies mainly on a combination of wind power and solar photovoltaics. Both sources are variable, they come and go with the weather. “You’re producing energy at times when you may not need it and at other times when you need it, you’re not producing anything,” says Michael Bielinski, chief executive of … Continue reading Pushing green hydrogen into commercial operation

China building world’s largest green hydrogen plant

The facility in Xinjiang will use renewable energy to break down water into oxygen and hydrogen, the latter of which can then be liquefied and used as fuel. The facility should help to reduce the country’s carbon emissions by around 500,000 tonnes a year. The project in Kuqa in the south of the region uses … Continue reading China building world’s largest green hydrogen plant

Green hydrogen has a leakage problem that may cancel out some of its climate gains

Hydrogen has emerged as the great white (or green) hope of the clean energy transition due to its potential use in decarbonising hard-to-abate industries like shipping, steel production, and even transport. These sectors are tricky to electrify. Cargo ships for example, can’t necessarily recharge battery supply in the middle of the ocean, and cutting emissions … Continue reading Green hydrogen has a leakage problem that may cancel out some of its climate gains

A Quarter of Global Hydrogen Set for Trading by 2050

Green hydrogen trade can provide a low-cost alternative that diversifies energy imports and improves energy security, says new IRENA report. To make hydrogen trade cost-effective, the costs of producing and trading green hydrogen must be lower than domestic production to offset higher transport costs. A new report series released by the International Renewable Energy Agency … Continue reading A Quarter of Global Hydrogen Set for Trading by 2050
