Green Deal will remain after EU elections, just with different marketing, says analyst

In an interview with pv magazine, Linda Kalcher, executive director at European think tank Strategic Perspectives, described the possible consequences of the recent EU elections on the continent’s energy landscape. “Investors and businesses need security and predictability to thrive,” she said. “If cleantech is not manufactured here, the jobs and investments go to the US and China and a deindustrialisation looms. This cannot be in the interest of any politician,”

The Hydrogen Stream: Russian researchers propose hydrogen extraction from gas wells

While a team of Russian researchers proposed a novel approach to produce hydrogen directly in gas wells, Plug Power and CPH2 secure certification for the hydrogen systems.

BESS, deep learning simulations: decrease in wholesale price variability

Donato Leo is the author of a study on the relationship between photovoltaics, batteries and wholesale energy prices in Italy. Leo’s deep learning simulations suggest changes in energy prices as installed battery capacity increases.

The Hydrogen Stream: PV-wind hybrids cut LCOH by 70%

Portuguese and Italian researchers have shown that the levelized cost of hydrogen (LCOH) is lower onshore and that PV-wind configurations reduce the LCOH up to 70%, while Lhyfe says it has started collaborating on a hydrogen storage project.

The Hydrogen Stream: Lower costs needed for competitive green hydrogen

The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research has provided figures for the levelized cost of hydrogen (LCoH) for major projects in the Netherlands, while Meld Energy says it is moving forward with its hydrogen plans in England.

The Hydrogen Stream: India launches green ammonia auction

As the state-owned SECI launches a reverse auction to purchase 539,000 metric tonnes of green ammonia a year, Yara officially opened its 24 MW renewable hydrogen plant at Herøya, Norway.

The Hydrogen Stream: China may hit 2025 green-hydrogen targets a year early

Rystad Energy says China appears set to smash its national hydrogen targets, solidifying its lead in the global electrolyzer market, while European Union and Japan have agreed to cooperate on hydrogen research.

Zinc-ion batteries: a less volatile alternative?

At a time of growing demand for battery energy storage, pv magazine spoke with Eloisa de Castro, CEO of Enerpoly, a Swedish company preparing to launch the world’s first zinc-ion battery megafactory on its home turf. Having solved rechargeability issues, the company expects its safe and sustainable zinc-ion batteries, which rely solely on a European supply chain, to increase their market share in the years to come.

BNEF Summit highlights sluggish trading of low-carbon hydrogen, derivatives

Analysts at the recent BNEF Summit in Munich discussed delays for hydrogen adoption in European countries, noting that locations are crucial for predicting which hydrogen production plans will proceed. Projects in areas with high amounts of renewables have an advantage.

The Hydrogen Stream: Europe launches pilot to improve market transparency

The European Commission says it has started working on a new pilot mechanism, and Italy has agreed to expand collaboration with Austria and Germany, while also supporting cooperation between Italian companies and Finland’s Wärtsilä.
