London-based fuel cell company Bramble Energy has closed a £35million investment round to help further expand its game changing capabilities in solving key challenges in the production and implementation of hydrogen fuel cell stacks.
A few days before the opening of the Hyvolution exhibition dedicated to the hydrogen sector, which will be held this year in Paris Porte de Versailles on February 1st and 2nd, SAFRA is more than ever in the starting blocks to present its hydrogen retrofit kit. Announced last October at the Autocar Expo show, the company is now in the final run for approval. This phase is indeed essential to carry out the conversion of the vehicles, in compliance with the technical and administrative provisions of the Order of 13 March 2020.
The MoU with Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) gives the parties an opportunity to explore the possibility of working together to develop green hydrogen and green ammonia for the Daures Green Hydrogen Village in Namibia. FFI will now have a period of exclusivity to study and perform due diligence on the project, which not only aims to revolutionise farming in Africa by potentially producing agricultural produce using fertiliser made from green ammonia but also to supply green hydrogen and green ammonia to regional and international markets.
Australian electrolyser company Hysata has been chosen as one of the successful grant recipients for the HyGATE Initiative, which aims to support pilot, trial, and demonstration projects along the hydrogen supply chain. Hysata’s capillary-fed electrolyser operates at an impressive 95% system efficiency (41.5 kWh/kg), delivering a significant improvement in performance and cost over traditional technologies, which typically operate at 75% or less. This high efficiency, along with a simple approach to mass manufacturing and low supply chain risk, is disruptive and will significantly reduce the cost of green hydrogen.
Australia and Germany have earmarked A$50 million ($35.5 million) and 50 million euros ($54.4 million), respectively, towards a joint initiative to establish a green hydrogen supply chain, Australian Minister for Climate Change and Energy Chris Bowen said on Friday.
