Phase I SBIR Program Project Selections Include Efforts in Hydrogen and Fuel Cell R&D Technologies
Rathlin-Valentia Islands ‘Poles Apart’ but Linked by a Common Need to Develop a Green Hydrogen Energy StrategyMay 27, 2020 | 12 min read May 27, 2020 | 12 min read
- GenComm partners input to islands hydrogen development acknowledged
TWO islands at the opposite ends of the island of Ireland are making ‘energetic strides’ in the face of the COVID19 crisis to develop a new green hydrogen energy strategy for a new decade.
In the project ‘Autostack Industrie’, five OEMs and various suppliers are working together in order to bring the key technologies in the manufacture of stacks – the core components of fuel cell vehicles – to industrialization stage. The focus of the project, which runs until the end of 2021, is to prepare the appropriate high-speed processes. The challenges are considerable, but the initial results are positive.
Basque Country: Energy Generated on Offshore Wind Turbine Farms, and Conveyed Ashore as Hydrogen FuelMay 27, 2020 | 4 min read May 27, 2020 | 4 min read
- UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country confirms the viability of using offshore wind energy to produce hydrogen for fuel purposes
The generation of energy on offshore wind turbine farms is much higher because heavy-duty wind turbines are deployed and wind regimes are much more stable than on land.
Experiments find the sweet spot for surface area and bubbles to store energy
DURHAM, N.C. — Electrolysis, passing a current through water to break it into gaseous hydrogen and oxygen, could be a handy way to store excess energy from wind or solar power.
Hydrogen researchers at the Graz University of Technology, together with the Graz-based start-up Rouge H2 Engineering, have developed a cost-effective process for the decentralised production of high-purity hydrogen.
Creation of a new regional and cross-border pure hydrogen transmission network reusing existing gas infrastructure
Paris, Hombourg — GRTgaz SA and Creos Deutschland GmbH are collaborating to create a 100% pure hydrogen infrastructure, connecting the Saar (Germany), Lorraine (France) and the Luxembourg border.
- The Rolls-Royce Power Systems business unit focuses on development and sale of fuel-cell generators as MTU emergency power generators.
- Fuel cells are to be supplied by the planned Daimler Truck AG and Volvo Group joint venture.
- First demonstrator to be operational by end of year.
Daimler Truck AG and Rolls-Royce plc plan to cooperate on stationary fuel-cell generators as CO2-neutral emergency power generators for safety-critical facilities such as data centers.
With the race to supply hydrogen becoming increasingly competitive on the global stage, Woodside is investing in relationships and knowledge to improve our understanding of the role hydrogen can play in global decarbonisation.
