By ‘land, sea and air,’ GM plans to expand fuel-cell business beyond EVs
Publish Date: 6/21/2021

“Batteries have a role to fill, but to fully electrify and deal with the breadth of the different applications that we’re talking about, you also have to have hydrogen fuel cells,” said Charlie Freese, who leads GM’s global fuel cell business. “They complement each other extremely well.”

Germany to support 500 MW electrolyzers abroad with $1.1 billion
Publish Date: 6/17/2021

The initiative, part of Germany's Eur2 billion hydrogen abroad strategy, would secure long-term hydrogen supply contracts via annual auctions, with funding approved to 2030, it said.
First cargoes of hydrogen or derivatives such as ammonia were expected from 2024.

Energy minister Peter Altmaier named six potential exporters (Saudi Arabia, Canada, Australia, Russia, Ukraine and Chile) with whom he had had talks in recent months.

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.

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.

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.
