Hydrogen Micro-Grids Could Solve California’s Energy Crisis
Publish Date: 9/17/2020
Stone Edge saw the benefits of green hydrogen early on. After struggling to power its operations through photovoltaic solar systems alone, owner Mac McQuown sought a more integrated solution. With the support of Omni Energy Solutions, Stone Edge installed a micro-grid that combines various clean energy technologies, including renewable electricity generation and battery and hydrogen storage, with real-time monitoring and control. The critical piece tying these components together is the a Plug Power electrolyzer, a machine that splits water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen via an electrochemical reaction. The extracted hydrogen is then stored on-site for later use by the Plug Power GenSure fuel cells that power the winery’s critical infrastructure or by its fuel cell-powered vehicles. This process enables Stone Edge Farm to run its business nearly emissions-free.

Hyundai Mobis Succeeds in Jointly Developing a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Forklift
Publish Date: 10/1/2020
The hydrogen fuel cell forklift developed is a mid-to-large sized one that can lift up to five tons of cargo and can be operated continuously for five hours when its hydrogen fuel cell is fully charged. Although small-sized hydrogen fuel cell forklifts designed to carry small items indoors have previously been unveiled, this is actually the first time that a mid-to-large sized hydrogen fuel cell forklift has been developed.

Siemens to build large CO2-free hydrogen production plant in southern Germany
Publish Date: 9/25/2020
Siemens Smart Infrastructure and WUN H2 GmbH signed a contract to build one of the largest hydrogen production plants in Germany. It will be built in Wunsiedel in the north of Bavaria. With a power intake of six megawatts in the initial development phase, the plant will run solely on renewable energy and will be CO2-free. The electrolysis plant from Siemens Energy will have the capacity to produce over 900 tons of hydrogen per year in this first phase. When fully expanded, it will be able to supply up to 2,000 tons. Groundbreaking is scheduled for the end of this year and commissioning at the end of 2021.

FirstElement Fuel: California’s 123 new hydrogen stations are the key to a self-sustaining business case
Publish Date: 9/25/2020
“The station cost has gone up a little bit, but the performance has increased about four or five times. If our original hydrogen stations were around $2.5m to build, our new hydrogen stations are a little over $3.5m to build. But they’ve gone from one fuelling position and the capability to fill 50 cars a day, to now four fuelling positions and the ability to fill 300 or even 400 cars a day,” he explained.
