The New Mexico Economic Development Department, Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department, and Environment Department entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories to build a zero-carbon hydrogen economy not only in New Mexico but across the United States.
- IRENA says green hydrogen could disrupt global trade and bilateral energy relations, reshaping the positioning of states with new hydrogen exporters and users emerging.
Abu Dhabi, UAE–Rapid growth of the global hydrogen economy can bring significant geoeconomic and geopolitical shifts giving rise to a wave of new interdependencies, according to new analysis by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Geopolitics of the Energy Transformation: The Hydrogen Factor sees hydrogen changing the geography of energy trade and regionalising energy relations, hinting at the emergence of new centres of geopolitical influence built on the production and use of hydrogen, as traditional oil and gas trade declines.
MITO — Ibaraki prefecture officials were given a first-hand look at a large-scale bus that could serve as a PCR testing venue outside the prefectural government office on Friday.
In the summer of 2021, the artist duo GÆG (Wolfgang Aichner and Thomas Huber) installed a large clock in the rock opening at Fuorcla digl Leget, a rock gate not far from the Julier Pass (Switzerland).
The automobile industry, especially in Europe, has made huge investments in diesel technology, from engines to injection and control systems and more. All of these investments – and most of the jobs connected to diesel engines – are in danger of extinction if we go only to battery power.
LAWRENCE — As wind and solar operations supply an increasing share of the country’s energy needs, a new project at the Kansas Geological Survey may help address the challenge of intermittent production from renewable sources.
- “Artificial photosynthesis is the holy grail of all chemists,”
Chemical engineers at EPFL have developed a new approach to artificial photosynthesis, a method for harvesting solar energy that produces hydrogen as a clean fuel from water
- EPFL scientists have observed how catalysts behave at the particle level during water electrolysis.
Catalysts play a crucial role in this reaction, in which water splits into hydrogen and oxygen. By shedding light on the underlying mechanism of the functional role of catalysts during the reaction, the scientists have made an important discovery for the design of renewable-energy storage systems.
- Georgia Tech improves the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of water-splitting process to double production of carbon-free green hydrogen
The climate crisis requires ramping up usage of renewable energy sources like solar and wind, but with intermittent availability, scalable energy storage is a challenge.
- KyotoU-led collaboration yields clean hydrogen from solar power and wood chips
Kyoto, Japan — In the global race to curb climate change and reduce carbon emissions, hydrogen is considered a serious contender to replace fossil fuels. Although hydrogen ‘burns’ cleanly, with only water as a by-product, the current way of making hydrogen a reliable fuel alternative is energy- and carbon-intensive.
