Today, Dutch Minister for Climate and Energy Rob Jetten announced new plans for the construction of a national transport network for hydrogen. Gasunie will develop the hydrogen network in the Netherlands in the coming years, after which it will assume the role of TSO (Transmission System Operator). Gasunie will also play an important role in the storage and import of hydrogen. Due to the expected growth in offshore hydrogen production in the North Sea, Minister Jetten will investigate whether Gasunie can also fulfill the role of grid operator at sea. These new plans are a major step in the development of a more sustainable energy system in the Netherlands.
Globally, fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs) are increasingly preferred for one-to-one replacement of diesel and CNG buses. In North America, the US is leading the transformation to hydrogen-fueled zero-emission transit. Across the US, 64 FCEBs are in operation today. In large part, this is because of government policies and studies which looked at scaling up of zero emission bus deployments to fleet size.
