Norway: Roadmap for hydrogen: Node and research
Publish Date: 6/11/2021

The road map has the vision that in 2050 a market will be established for the production and use of hydrogen. In the short term, the government will by 2025 facilitate the establishment of five hydrogen hubs in maritime transport in collaboration with private actors, the establishment of one or two industrial projects with associated production facilities and between five and ten pilot projects for the development and demonstration of new and more cost-effective hydrogen solutions and technologies.

GM to supply electric batteries, hydrogen fuel cell systems for Wabtec locomotive
Publish Date: 6/15/2021

Under the nonbinding memorandum of understanding, GM will supply Ultium electric batteries and Hydrotec hydrogen fuel cell power cubes. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Wabtec's decision to deploy GM's Ultium battery and Hydrotec hydrogen fuel cell systems further validates our advanced technology," GM President Mark Reuss said.

Ultium is a key part of GM’s strategy to roll out efficient and cost effective electric vehicles, and closing a deal with Wabtec would help spread development costs over a larger volume of batteries. GM is developing a hydrogen fuel-cell-powered commercial truck with truck maker Navistar (NAV.N).

GM's Ultium batteries will be built by the company's joint venture with South Korea battery maker LG Energy Solution (051910.KS), which is building plants in Ohio and Tennessee. The hydrogen fuel-cell systems will be assembled by GM's joint venture with Honda (7267.T) in Brownstown, Michigan.

San Francisco Bay Area’s AC Transit orders an additional 20 fuel cell-electric buses from NFI’s New Flyer
Publish Date: 6/14/2021

Supported by Federal Transit Administration funds, the order follows AC Transit’s 2019 purchase of ten hydrogen fuel cell-electric and five battery-electric buses from NFI, and demonstrably advances AC Transit’s Clean Corridors Plan (a commitment to operate a 25% zero-emission fleet by 2023) and ultimately its implementation of the California Air Resources Board (“CARB”) Innovative Clean Transit Regulation that requires all California agencies to transition to zero-emission bus fleets by 2040.

Why green hydrogen is reaching a tipping point; Five drivers of the low-carbon hydrogen market boom
Publish Date: 6/14/2021

After a pandemic-related dip in Q2 and Q3 2020, investment in low-carbon hydrogen is once again on the up. At least US$4.5 billion was invested in the hydrogen market in the first quarter of 2021 alone, with 55 projects announced.

Until 2019, global estimated electrolyser manufacturing capacity was a mere 200 MW. That has since jumped to 6.3 GW of current announced electrolyser capacity, with 1.3 GW added in Q1 2021 alone and another step up in the announced pipeline.

Of course, this still represents only a small percentage of the almost 1,000 GW of electrolyser capacity needed by 2050 to meet our demand forecasts. However, the exponential rate of growth in manufacturing capacity is clear and likely to continue.

Port of Los Angeles Rolls Out Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Freight Demonstration ; ‘Shore-to-Store’ Advances Zero-Emissions Transit Across Supply Chain
Publish Date: 6/7/2021

The Port of Los Angeles and its partners are launching a new era of pollution-free goods movement with the debut of five new hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) and the grand opening of two hydrogen fueling stations. Under the $82.5 million Shore-to-Store (S2S) project, more than a dozen public and private sector partners have teamed up for a 12-month demonstration of the zero-emissions Class 8 trucks and will expand the project to include five more hydrogen-fueled heavy-duty trucks, two battery-electric yard tractors, and two battery-electric forklifts.

Secretary Granholm Launches Energy Earthshots Initiative to Accelerate Breakthroughs Toward a Net-Zero Economy; First Energy Earthshot Aims to Slash the Cost of Clean Hydrogen by 80% to $1 per Kilogram in One Decade
Publish Date: 6/7/2021

Currently, hydrogen from renewable energy costs about $5 per kilogram. By achieving Hydrogen Shot’s 80% cost reduction goal, we can unlock a five-fold increase in demand by increasing clean hydrogen production from pathways such as renewables, nuclear, and thermal conversion. This would create more clean energy jobs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and position America to compete in the clean energy market on a global scale.
