British Airways sees ‘significant’ role for hydrogen in decarbonising aviation
British Airways (BA) sees hydrogen-powered 19-seater aircraft becoming cost competitive with its current fossil fuel model from 2027, and hydrogen-powered 72-seater and 180-seater aircraft becoming cost competitive with its current operations from 2030 onwards.
That’s what Carrie Harris, Head of Sustainability at British Airways, told the Westminster Energy Environment & Transport Forum’s Growing the hydrogen market in the UK virtual event today (May 26).

Air Liquide supports Daimler Truck AG with Liquid Hydrogen for heavy-duty long-haul fuel-cell Truck prototype tests
In parallel with this project, Air Liquide will support the development of a new open and global liquid hydrogen refueling standard together in a large industry working group (sLH2 “subcooled“ liquid hydrogen).
Hydrogen potential atlas: Africa could become the world's energy supplier;
These are the most important results at a glance:
In West Africa alone, a maximum of 165,000 TWh of green hydrogen could be produced annually. For comparison: That corresponds to 110 times the amount of green hydrogen that Germany will probably have to import in 2050.
Of these 165,000 TWh of hydrogen, around 120,000 TWh could be produced annually for less than 2.50 euros per kilogram. For comparison: studies assume that the cost of one kilo of hydrogen in Germany will still be around 3.80 euros in 2050.
Solar energy can be generated most cheaply in the northern regions of West Africa, and wind energy in the southern regions. Because of the low you electricity production costs of solar energy under 2 cents per kWh in the north of West Africa, the costs for the production of green hydrogen are particularly low here. For comparison: The electricity production costs with renewable energies in West Africa are around 30% lower than in Germany.
It is possible to meet West Africa's local energy needs - without significantly reducing the energy requirements for the production of green hydrogen.
Building a green hydrogen-based economy is associated with high social and economic benefits in both urban and rural regions of West Africa. This makes hydrogen technologies interesting for African decision-makers from politics and business - and increases the likelihood of a quick entry into the hydrogen economy.
Pacific Northwest renewable hydrogen action plan to develop a hydrogen economy
The Policy Pillar – US: California’s only scientist in state Legislature wants the government to pay more attention to hydrogen
“If we’re going to subsidise electric, which makes sense to me, we’ve got to subsidise hydrogen as well. I think it’s definitely something that we need for the future, hydrogen for vehicles. Everyone agrees hydrogen is the best option for heavy-duty, it’s a no-brainer, but I think it’s extremely important for light-duty too.”
Role of Hydrogen Energy in a Nutshell! New Video!
The Consulate General of Japan in Los Angeles has produced a new video, in cooperation with private companies and government agencies, which succinctly details the creation of a hydrogen energy sector and the creation of a Hydrogen Society, both in Japan and in collaboration with partners in Southern California and Los Angeles. An exciting example of how our nations are, in real time, undeniably improving the world together.
The Policy Pillar – US: Hydrogen Forward playing a key role in unlocking hydrogen’s potential
On when we might see a US hydrogen strategy, Kraus said, “The federal structure in the US makes it unique when compared to other markets, globally. Support for a national hydrogen strategy in the US will look different than it does in Europe and Asia. Think of where the US renewable industries were 20 years ago – with a concerted policy of tax credits and incentives at state and federal levels, wind and solar were able to gain a foothold and really blossom into the sizable and growing industries they are today.
“The path forward for hydrogen will be similar, though it will be able to deliver on some of its benefits in a much shorter time horizon. Marshalling the resources of the US government to bring together experts across agencies to create a national hydrogen strategy could also deliver on this promise sooner by showing commitment to a hydrogen economy for business and investors.”
Leading CEO's ask Newsom to dedicate $500 million in hydrogen infrastructure funds as part of zero-emission vehicle plan
In a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom, executives of 25 multi-national companies today called for major new investments in hydrogen infrastructure in the Golden State.
“At this still early stage in market development, the signal California sends on hydrogen will impact private investment decisions. But in the medium- to long-run, hydrogen must and will stand on its own legs and be viable without external support,” wrote the executives in their letter to the governor.
They noted “The early stages of any technology curve must have some support, much as was seen in the early days of wind and solar power.”
Toyota’s Path to Carbon Neutrality
Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) will make up 15% of U.S. sales by 2030
Electrified vehicles including BEVs will make up 70% of U.S. sales by 2030
Global sales of approximately 8M electrified vehicles by 2030 of which 2M will be BEVs and FCEVs
A Closer Look at Toyota's Hydrogen Powered Heavy-Duty Trucks
Toyota and Kenworth have rolled out hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric heavy-duty trucks in Southern California. These 18 wheelers emit nothing but water and will greatly reduce the environmental impact of drayage operations at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. This video follows Toyota team member Jose Gonzalez as he shares highlights of these new trucks.

Port of Corpus Christi to produce 'green hydrogen,' hopes to reduce carbon footprint
The port on Tuesday announced it has entered into a nonbinding Memorandum of Understanding with Ares Management Corp. to develop renewable energy infrastructure on port-owned property.
It's there that officials for the nation's third-largest port based on tonnage plan to eventually produce green hydrogen and provide renewable power for its customers and its own use.
“As the Energy Port of the Americas, we are working to find new ways to operationalize our commitment to decarbonization," port CEO Sean Strawbridge said in a statement. "This project not only brings a new type of economic activity to our gateway, but it will directly meet the needs of our current customers, many of whom use hydrogen in their production processes."
