How Clean Is Green’ Hydrogen?

Batteries and renewable energy alone can’t decarbonize industries, and recent proposals for a “hydrogen economy” could bridge those gaps. The Democrats’ new climate bill, which the US Senate passed on Sunday, has been described as “transformative” and “game-changing.” But perhaps the most apt word is “shocking”—in a good way, for once. According to analysis after … Continue reading How Clean Is Green’ Hydrogen?

Hydrogen: A targeted decarbonization tool but not a panacea

Hydrogen has the potential to help decarbonize many of the sectors and applications that depend on emissions-intensive fossil fuels, including fossil gas. Clean hydrogen[i] projects are therefore increasingly talked about and also piloted in several countries to support their decarbonization goals. Hydrogen is expected to be an important piece of the clean technology toolkit as … Continue reading Hydrogen: A targeted decarbonization tool but not a panacea

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

Vattenfall aims to build the world’s first offshore hydrogen cluster in the Netherlands

In the future, more and more of our energy will come from wind energy and solar power. Since nothing changes as much as the weather, the amount of electricity supplied by wind turbines and solar is also in a constant state of flux. How can we overcome this? How can we ensure that the supply … Continue reading Vattenfall aims to build the world’s first offshore hydrogen cluster in the Netherlands

Barcelona receives the first Caetano hydrogen bus that will soon be refuelled at Iberdrola’s green H2 plant

The innovative vehicle arrived at the TMB depot this week as the supply station began Spain’s first commercial production of green H2. This week the first of eight state-of-the-art hydrogen fuel cell buses built by CaetanoBus arrived at a Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB) depot. At the same time, Iberdrola has already begun to produce … Continue reading Barcelona receives the first Caetano hydrogen bus that will soon be refuelled at Iberdrola’s green H2 plant

Wind energy compensates part of the hydroelectric losses in Brazil

Virtually non-existent in the Brazilian energy matrix during the 2001 crisis, wind power has already become the second most used in Brazil, representing 10.8% of the consumption of the National Interconnected System (SIN), according to data from the National System. Electric Operator (ONS). This proportion, however, will increase until November, a period to which what … Continue reading Wind energy compensates part of the hydroelectric losses in Brazil
