The Hydrogen Stream: More hydrogen for the port of Rotterdam

Chiyoda Corporation and Mitsubishi Corporation to conduct a joint feasibility study for a commercial-scale import of hydrogen from overseas sources to one terminal in the port of Rotterdam. Furthermore, the UK government said it wants to produce produce hydrogen from nuclear and Japan’s automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor is looking into geothermal potential for hydrogen production.

How to Spot a Faulty Solar Performance Model

This pv magazine Webinar explains how solar projects can become constrained, and developers outright burned, by using the wrong solar performance model when generating sales proposals.

The weekend read: Don’t be afraid of BIPV

Necessity, as it’s said, is the mother of invention. For architect Samira Jama Aden, who plays a central role at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin’s BAIP consultancy for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), the need for solar to be part of our built environment is becoming unavoidable. And for Aden, her mission is personal.
