New Mexico has the ingredients to be hydrogen superpower
Publish Date: 1/31/2022

While the federal infrastructure package will facilitate the growth of the hydrogen economy, providing $8 billion over four years to create regional decarbonized hydrogen production and consumption hubs, more is needed in our state to take advantage of this opportunity. The race is already on to compete with Texas, California, and Appalachia to host hydrogen hubs.

ITM Power and Linde: 24MW Sale to Yara
Publish Date: 1/27/2022

The hydrogen required for ammonia production is currently produced from SMR. Yara intends to start replacing this grey hydrogen with green hydrogen produced from renewable energy and electrolysis. The 24MW system supplying 10,368 kg/day of hydrogen will account for approximately 5% of the plant's consumption and serve as a feasibility study for future upscaling.

Hydrogen revolution is just getting started
Publish Date: 1/20/2022

“BayoTech is deploying a network of regional hydrogen hubs at strategic sites throughout the US and UK. BayoTech has identified key locations throughout the US where we can meet the growing demand for reliable, affordable supply for hydrogen,” Vargas said.

“These locations include our home state of New Mexico, as well as other key hot-spots including sites in Oklahoma, California and Utah. Initially, we see a real opportunity to be at the centre of a regional network of hydrogen hubs accelerating clean energy adoption throughout the Western US.”

SunLine celebrates new mobile hydrogen refueling station in Indio
Publish Date: 1/19/2022

SunLine's board of directors first voted to move toward a 100% alternative fuel fleet back in 1992, and the agency started by using natural gas. SunLine is now focused on converting its entire fleet to hydrogen fuel cell technology, which operates better at extreme temperatures than battery-powered buses, and can drive up to 350 miles on one charge.

PACCAR Partners with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) on SuperTruck 3 Program
Publish Date: 11/4/2021

PACCAR is launching its SuperTruck 3 program to continue the development of its Class 8 Kenworth and Peterbilt battery electric and fuel cell vehicles, along with its vehicle charging stations. SuperTruck 3 is a DOE initiative to develop state of the art zero emissions medium- and heavy-duty trucks. PACCAR received a $33 million matching grant for the highly selective program. “The SuperTruck 3 award underscores PACCAR’s industry leadership in zero emissions commercial vehicles,” said John Rich, PACCAR chief technology officer.

Kenworth rolls out battery-electric, fuel-cell-electric trucks for demonstrations
Publish Date: 1/13/2022

Adams said a hydrogen fueling network will need to be established, but he believes private corporations will be eager to develop one, due to the fast fueling times associated with hydrogen and increased opportunity to profit based on greater throughput than electric charging.

Kenworth’s current hydrogen trucks produce 560 hp, house a 12-kW battery pack to aid in propulsion and take pressure off the fuel cells, and hold up to 60 kg of hydrogen. Trucknews.com will have a first-hand report on the driving experiences of both battery-electric and hydrogen-fuel-cell-electric trucks in the days ahead.

Clean energy Coast Futura rail demo met with excitement, hope for the future
Publish Date: 1/13/2022

Spanning two weekends — one each in Watsonville and Santa Cruz — the clean-energy, all-electric light rail vehicle gave the community a tangible example of what car-free travel could be like in the region.

More than 2,000 people took rides on the Coast Futura, including families, people with limited mobility and local elected officials. The streetcar demonstration was produced with support from a collaboration that included about 120 local volunteers, Roaring Camp Railroads and TIG/m, which manufactures the streetcar.

AC Transit Releases Second Iteration of Zero Emission Transit Bus Technology Analysis
Publish Date: 12/8/2021

AC Transit announces the release of the second version of our Zero Emission Transit Bus Technology Analysis (ZETBTA) study.  Our current report tracks greenhouse gas emissions, cost per mile, fleet availability and other intelligent data spanning January through June 2021.

The ZETBTA study’s data is reliable because it is captured from a control fleet using the same 25 buses, then reinforced through academic evaluation by scientists at Stanford University’s Precourt Institute for Energy.

The ZETBTA is a robust side-by-side evaluation of the predominant bus technologies in use at transit agencies worldwide: fuel cell electric bus (FCEB), battery electric bus (BEB), diesel hybrid, and conventional diesel bus propulsion systems.
