Where Are All the Hydrogen Cars We Were Promised?
Publish Date: 8/31/2020
“If you look at how much energy is actually flowing through your hand as you’re holding a dispenser at a gasoline pump, it’s on the order of 1 to 2 megawatts,” Wipke says. Compare that to the 2 kilowatts—a thousand times less power—that's available at a standard wall outlet. It’s easy to see why charging times are so long for battery electrics. “With hydrogen, you’re still moving molecules," he explains. "As long as you have enough pressure and low-resistance flow paths, then you can push the molecules from the station to the car very quickly.”

WoodMac: 2020s Will Be the ‘Decade Of Hydrogen’; In markets like Germany, green hydrogen production costs will equal fossil-fuel-based hydrogen by 2030, new research indicates.
Publish Date: 8/28/2020
“If additional explicit policy support comes to fruition in the coming months, we could see costs fall even faster, and more universally, than outlined in our report," said Gallagher. "The energy transition is dynamic. If 2020 is any indication, so too will be the low-carbon hydrogen landscape."

Creating a Cleaner Future With the California Fuel Cell Partnership [Interview]
Publish Date: 8/27/2020
"First and foremost, and not particular to just heavy-duty, is setting the stage with proper government policies and a policy environment that then signals and encourages greater private investment. Because both of those things together are what we need to scale up the market and that creates that opportunity. "The challenge is getting everyone to work together because both public and private stakeholders are needed to do this. "So, in these early years, we need to look at that policy investment in order to de-risk the environment so businesses are willing to make those long-term investments and achieve scale as quickly as possible. Because hydrogen at scale brings great value and benefit to all the stakeholders."

The hydrogen company Nel threatens to drop further expansion in Norway
Publish Date: 8/26/2020
After a year and a half in dialogue with state-owned Enova, Nel still lacks support for a pilot project at the upcoming factory on Herøya. This may mean that future Nel expansion in Norway will not materialize.

Hydrogen energy may be on the cusp. And Texas has potential to lead
Publish Date: 8/20/2020
“In the last couple of years, and particularly last year, I’ve seen the greatest interest I’ve seen in hydrogen for two decades,” said Alan Lloyd, a senior research fellow at the Energy Institute at the University of Texas at Austin. “Why is that? I think the major reason is the recognition from major companies now that if they’re going to do something about looking at a sustainable energy transition, if they are going to take climate change for real, they’ve got to look at de-carbonization.”

Cummins Makes Gains On The Tracks
Publish Date: 8/13/2020
“By 2022, there will be 41 of these types of trains powered by Cummins fuel cells running in Europe, making Cummins the leading provider of fuel cells for trains globally,” Linebarger said. “We are in active conversations with OEMs and end users about how to utilize, both our PEM and solid oxide fuel cells in a variety applications, including trains, ships, data centers and on highway vehicles. We have fuel cell powered trucks running to date in both Europe and North America.

“I think the most important thing is that we need to begin to build regional scale centers where we can begin to deploy these technologies in a serious way,” [Cummins CEO] Linebarger said. “Deployment for storage, renewable storage, deployment for transportation and deployment for industry. I think Southern California is a good example but we need more of those places in more parts of the world. We don’t want just spot solutions. We need regional areas where all the technologies are deployed, we can all come down to scale, investors can make money and then we can go to the next spot. And I think whoever does it, the next one will do it and we all benefit.”

“Green” Hydrogen: Critical to Powering a Carbon-Free Future
Publish Date: 8/7/2020
This decade will be crucial to scale up the industry and show the long-term policy support that is necessary to stimulate investor appetite and make it a big job creator for Americans. Some important policies include: Passing a national, economywide net-zero greenhouse gas emissions target by 2050 Accelerating the transition to zero-emission trucks and buses through emission standards, including the Advanced Clean Trucks rule, as well as multi-state collaborations like the medium- and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicle memorandum of understanding recently signed by 15 states and the District of Columbia. Establishing a procurement mandate for gas utilities to blend a minimum and safe level of green hydrogen in delivered gas to buildings Including incentives for green hydrogen deployment in near-term stimulus packages. Incentives could be targeted toward 1) green hydrogen demonstration projects in steel manufacturing and high-heat industries; and 2) helping refineries and fertilizer producers transition to green hydrogen. Establishing procurement standards for “green” steel in public infrastructure projects and “green” fertilizer in public agricultural projects
