SEOUL (Yonhap) — Korea Gas Corp. (KOGAS), a major gas supplier in the country, said Sunday that it plans to spend 4.7 trillion won (US$4.01 billion) on building hydrogen-producing facilities by 2030.
Under the plan, KOGAS will construct 25 hydrogen-producing facilities and pipelines totaling 700 kilometers to transport the gas. By 2030, KOGAS expects 1.73 million tons of hydrogen to be supplied annually.
The first international hydrogen and fuel cell industry conference in Chengdu was held in Chengdu. Numerous domestic and foreign experts and representatives of well-known entrepreneurs gathered together to discuss the development path of hydrogen energy and fuel cell industry, and to imagine the development prospects of hydrogen energy and fuel cell industry, and to talk about friendship and common development.
Electrolysis on an industrial scale is planned at the STEAG site in Völklingen-Fenne
Essen — With the phase-out of nuclear power production in 2022 and the planned end of coal-fired power generation in 2038, it is clear that in Germany wind and solar energy will form the mainstays of the electricity supply in the future. But both renewable energy sources are subject to weather-related fluctuations. Hydrogen as an energy source can balance these fluctuations and thus becomes an important future building block for a successful energy transition.
St. Cloud, Minnesota, USA — New Flyer of America Inc. (“New Flyer”), a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc. (“NFI”), the largest bus manufacturer in North America, today announced a test demonstration for the Orange County Transportation Authority (“OCTA”) achieved 350-miles of zero-emission range with a New Flyer forty-foot, heavy-duty fuel cell-electric Xcelsior CHARGE H2™ bus. These results exceeded the 300-mile range performance target by 17 percent without refueling.
BP and Uniper, together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI, submit project outline for the “Real-world laboratories energy transition” competition
The planned project envisages the integration of renewable energy in the form of hydrogen into the transport sector
Power-to-gas technology (PtG) in refinery processes (PtGtR) makes a positive contribution to the energy transition
In order to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of a PtG plant at the BP refinery in Lingen, BP and Uniper, under the scientific supervision of Fraunhofer ISI, have examined and developed options for using the climate-friendly PtG technology for the refinery process.
NCE Maritime CleanTech and Greensight have launched a new report that estimates the future maritime hydrogen demand in Western Norway. The report also outlines the largest barriers for implementation of hydrogen in large scale.
