Opinion: Hydrogen gas key to California avoiding rolling blackouts; It’s a fuel that produces zero carbon emissions and can be stored for use during surges in electricity demand
Publish Date: 10/21/2020
The lesson from a summer of searing heat and ferocious wildfires is that California must maintain its commitment to renewable energy, and it must target its incentives and investments to ensure clean-energy storage that will balance its electrical grid. The Public Utilities Commission and the Energy Commission must pursue an aggressive strategy to fully incorporate clean hydrogen into California’s renewable portfolio.

Toyota Tsusho to Conduct Feasibility Study into Local Production for Local Consumption of Hydrogen
Publish Date: 10/15/2020
Toyota Tsusho has thus far taken part in a variety of projects aimed at demonstrating the feasibility of hydrogen production and use. Leveraging the expertise it has gained thereby, the company will carry out two feasibility studies at the Port of Los Angeles and in its vicinity in conjunction with TAI: 1. A feasibility study into the use of hydrogen to power large-scale port machinery with FC and it hydrogen supply scheme; and 2. A feasibility study into the production of hydrogen from biogases derived from livestock manure.

Canada risks missing out on fast-moving hydrogen opportunity: report
Publish Date: 10/12/2020
Canada is among the top-10 global hydrogen producers, but most of this hydrogen is created using fossil fuels, making it part of the climate problem. Clean hydrogen—whether made with non-emitting electricity, in combination with carbon removal, or via other innovative technologies—remains a largely unrealized opportunity. And yet Canada is among a small group of countries with the highest potential for exporting clean hydrogen, thanks to one of the least polluting electricity grids in the world and plenty of access to water.

Hydrogen, the most efficient solution to meet our zero-emissions goals
Publish Date: 10/2/2020
Let me emphasize that hydrogen is still not considered by most jurisdictions throughout the United States. That is primarily because they have been preoccupied with getting from 10% renewable to 50% renewable. If you only care about getting to 50% renewable, then hydrogen isn’t required, so they haven’t even thought about it as part of the solution. I don’t want to be too negative, but the fact is that when you just think about a 50% emissions reduction, you don’t need hydrogen. You can do a lot with solar and batteries. But if you want to get to zero emissions, you need solutions that only a zero-emissions renewable fuel can provide. And I think the best one is hydrogen.

Launch Horizon 2020 project “ROBINSON”; ROBINSON will focus on developing integrated energy solutions to decarbonise islands
Publish Date: 10/9/2020
Technological innovation is deeply rooted into the ROBINSON concept. Through the development of the optimised energy management system, ROBINSON will integrate newly developed and/or adapted technologies, such as a small gas turbine based combined heat and power; anaerobic digester assisted by bioelectrochemical systems to enable the conversion of liquid waste into biomethane; a mobile innovative wind turbine; a gasifier to covert bio-waste; as well as hydrogen-related technologies (electrolyser and storage system).

FuelCell Energy Announces U.S. Department of Energy Project Award
Publish Date: 10/9/2020
Fuel Cell Energy...announces selection by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, in collaboration with the Office of Nuclear Energy, for an $8.0 million funding award to support the design and manufacture of a SureSource electrolysis platform capable of producing of hydrogen. FuelCell Energy has previously demonstrated multi-stack solid oxide power generation systems at both the 50kW and 200kW output levels. This project will be the first multi-stack electrolysis system produced with the Company’s solid oxide technology. The system will be equipped with an option to receive thermal energy, thus increasing the electrolysis electrical efficiency to over 90%.

Let’s make every day Hydrogen Day
Publish Date: 10/8/2020
Three years ago, California was the lead investor, paying for 70% of capital costs to seed the market. Today, that equation has flipped: the private sector is paying for 70%. Think about that for a moment: just three years ago, California had to pull the market. Today, industry is leveraging government funding and the Low Carbon Fuel Standard to push the market ahead. What’s more, industry partners have driven down costs while increasing scale. That means these stations are bigger, cheaper, and more robust — like the gasoline stations drivers are used to, but with none of the mess. Addressing climate change isn’t just good for the environment, it’s good for business.
