Study shows how hydrogen fits in Atlantic region's energy transition
Publish Date: 10/29/2020
The study finds that for the Maritimes to realize hydrogen's full potential, the region must take a regionally cooperative approach to energy policy. Among its recommendations are development of a clean energy roadmap for the Atlantic region, creation of a strong regulatory framework with incentives to transform and decarbonize the region's energy system and aligned action plans, policies and high-profile projects that encourage local industry participation. The study shows that renewable hydrogen produced from wind combined with grid-scale hydrogen storage can be an enabler to increase energy independence, heavy duty transport can be a major contributor to hydrogen demand and the potential to use hydrogen for building heating is significant.

Major Energy Companies Bet Big on Hydrogen;There are plenty of obstacles. But advocates see the fuel playing a vital role in slashing emissions
Publish Date: 10/24/2020
Hydrogen now supplies less than 5% of the world’s energy—most of it used for oil refining and chemical production—but research firm BloombergNEF says it could reach nearly a quarter of global energy consumption by 2050 with strong government policies promoting it. By then, the fuel could generate more than $2.5 trillion of direct revenue annually, according to the Hydrogen Council, a trade group that includes oil-and-gas majors.

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 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.
