Unprecedented momentum for green hydrogen

‘Hydrogen: a renewable energy perspective’ estimates that hydrogen from renewable power, so called green hydrogen, could translate into 8 per cent of global energy consumption by 2050. 16 per cent of all generated electricity would be used to produce hydrogen by then. Green hydrogen could particularly offer ways to decarbonise a range of sectors where it is proving difficult to meaningfully reduce CO2 emissions.

Norway's Statkraft: Green hydrogen will win on price

Electrolysers, and thus green hydrogen, will fall in price and become cheaper than hydrogen from gas. And the cost drop on renewable hydrogen can come quickly, according to Statkraft's new low-emission scenario .

Cummins showcases hydrogen fuel cell truck during 2019 North American Commercial Vehicle Show

The truck was designed and integrated by Cummins in Columbus, Indiana and includes a proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell from Hydrogenics, a recent addition to Cummins. The truck was designed for a 90-kW fuel cell and is scalable in 30 kW or 45 kW increments up to 180 kW, andalso has a 100-kWh lithium-ion battery capacity. The truck has a range of 150 to 250 miles between filling up, however, that range can be extended with additional hydrogen tanks, by increasing the tank storage pressure or installing additional fuel cells to optimize management of the vehicle load factor. Many of the critical components of the powertrain, including the PEM fuel cell, system controller, powertrain controls, wire harnesses and junction boxes, among others, were designed and developed by Cummins.
