First of Toyota's Latest Hydrogen-Fuel Vehicle "Mirai" Makes a Debut in Lancaster, California
Publish Date: 2/22/2021
"Hydrogen provides a doable solution to the challenge of decarbonization now," said Heslin, whose firm develops clean energy and infrastructure projects around the world, including an anaerobic digestion (AD) waste facility in the City of Lancaster. Heslin is also advising the city on the nation's first municipal hydrogen-powered microgrid providing hydrogen generation and storage for resiliency, energy management and cost savings.

Why all the hoopla about hydrogen?
Publish Date: 2/20/2021
“Does hydrogen ever fully replace gasoline, diesel and natural gas? It’ll play its part in replacing those, without a doubt,” said Edwards of Air Liquide. “You’ll see it as a transportation fuel, as a home fuel, as an industrial fuel. You’ll see it in all of these places over time and 50 years from now, I think it will be very common across all those sectors.”

California wastes its extra solar, wind energy. Could hydrogen be the storage key?
Publish Date: 2/19/2021
State Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, is carrying a bill that aims to jump-start the movement to green hydrogen by requiring state agencies to factor the fuel into their climate plans. “Solar is great, but solar is only produced when the sun is shining,” Skinner said. “In a perfect world, hydrogen is one of the absolute best fuels. Many of our other carbon-free energy sources have some limitations that hydrogen does not have.”

Hydrogen deployment accelerating with more than $300 billion in project pipeline; including $80 billion in mature projects
Publish Date: 2/17/2021
As of early 2021, over 30 countries have released hydrogen roadmaps and governments worldwide have committed public funding in support of decarbonisation through hydrogen technologies. No less than 228 large-scale projects have been announced along the value chain, with 85% located in Europe, Asia, and Australia. These include large-scale industrial usage, transport applications, integrated hydrogen economy, infrastructure, and giga-scale production projects. If all announced projects come to fruition, total investments will reach more than $300 billion in spending through 2030. Of this investment $80 billion can currently be considered “mature” – meaning that these projects are in the planning stage, have passed a final investment decision (FID), or are under construction, already commissioned, or operational. Anticipating continued growth in scale, the report confirms that – from a total cost of ownership (TCO) perspective – hydrogen can become the most competitive low-carbon solution in more than 20 applications by 2030, including long haul trucking, shipping and steel. Two factors will be critical in achieving this result: first, it is essential that governments sustain their commitments to deep decarbonisation, backed by financial support, regulation and clear hydrogen strategies and targets, and translate these into long-term regulatory frameworks. Second, deployment approaches must target key “unlocks” such as reducing the cost of hydrogen production and distribution that will have the most significant impact on the rest of the industry.

However, lack of systemic policy support for hydrogen risks to derail these efforts. While Europe and East Asia have committed to investing hundreds of billions of dollars into hydrogen solutions, the U.S. is the only major market without a national hydrogen strategy. A comprehensive approach is critical because it provides a much-needed framework to enable fast, large-scale adoption.
