The Hydrogen Stream: New tech to reduce weight, costs of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

U.S.-based Hyzon Motors has developed a new onboard hydrogen storage system technology capable of reducing the weight and manufacturing cost of commercial vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Meanwhile, India’s largest oil provider has announced its first green hydrogen project and the Dutch government has awarded a subsidy contract to an offshore green hydrogen demonstrator.

The Hydrogen Stream: new push from Italy, Uniper eyes Oman’s hydrogen potential

A working group including Italian energy transmission operator Snam has begun a collaboration aimed at using hydrogen to reduce emissions in the glass industry. Elsewhere, Italy-based technology provider Saipem has launched a solution for the production of green hydrogen and German energy company Uniper has signed a cooperation agreement with Oman’s green hydrogen project, Hyport.

The Hydrogen Stream: What the EU’s Fit for 55 means for hydrogen

The revision of the EU Energy Taxation Directive (ETD) and the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) will also have an impact on the nascent hydrogen economy. The European Commission is currently evaluating options to create a certification system for low-carbon fuels and it may extend the EU-wide certification for renewable fuels to include hydrogen.

Hydrogen-fired gas turbines vs. lithium-ion storage

According to a new study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, hydrogen-fired gas plants will compete with lithium-ion storage for seasonal storage and their competitiveness will strictly depend on the heat rate of the gas power plants they may replace.

‘Historic’ 50 GW renewable hydrogen hub proposed for Australia

InterContinental Energy and CWP Global have proposed the use of 50 GW of solar and wind to annually produce either 3.5 million tons of green hydrogen or 20 million tons of green ammonia. The proposal follows the Australian federal environment minister’s recent rejection of environmental approvals for the 26 GW Asia Renewable Energy Hub.

New research points to cheaper green hydrogen by 2030

New modeling by Monash University researchers has shown that the cost of green hydrogen with solar PV could satisfy the Australian government’s economic stretch goal of AUD 2 ($1.50) per kilogram by as early as 2030.
