Shell, Mitsubishi and Vattenfall partner on Hamburg hydrogen project

Shell, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), Vattenfall and municipal company Wärme Hamburg are exploring a plan to jointly produce hydrogen from wind and solar power at the Hamburg-Moorburg power plant site and utilise it in its vicinity. To this end, the four companies have signed a letter of intent. In addition to the construction of a […]

Green hydrogen: The clean fuel of our dreams?

There’s no denying that when hydrogen is mentioned the usual reaction is “Oh! Isn’t it dangerous?” and, from the controversially portrayed events of the 20th century, this reaction is not surprising. In May 1939, following a transatlantic flight, a German airship called The Hindenburg caught fire while mooring in New Jersey. Due to US restrictions […]

Germany pledges $330m for green hydrogen research

Germany’s Ministry of Education and Research has pledged to pump at least another €300m ($330m) into research on green hydrogen by 2023, on top of €180m that it had already allocated. This investment forms part of the Energiewende, Germany’s transition to non-nuclear, sustainable power sources and comes after the government cabinet approved its draft legislative ‘climate package’. […]

Green hydrogen, Holy Grail for long-term energy storage, getting supermajors’ attention

Using renewable electricity to convert water to hydrogen fuel is one answer for the energy storage needed for solar and wind power to reach their full potential. As prices and technology hurdles fall, supermajors are entering the sector Joe Biden has promised that the first day he is President, he will rejoin America to the […]

Momentum for green hydrogen picking up in Europe

By William Wilkes, Vanessa Dezem and Anna Shiryaevskaya, Bloomberg  It’s the most nettlesome problem in the quest to ditch fossil fuels: how can you get thousand-degree heat used in factory furnaces without pumping billions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere? Heat-intensive processes like steelmaking and oil refineries are the starting point for production of […]

Axpo to produce hydrogen at 43.4-MW Eglisau-Glattfelden hydropower plant

Axpo plans to produce green hydrogen by building a production facility at its 43.4-MW Eglisau-Glattfelden hydropower plant on the Rhine River in Switzerland, the first of several hydrogen facilities Axpo will commission in the coming years. Scheduled to go onstream in autumn 2022, the 2.5-MW hydrogen production facility will produce about 350 tonnes of green […]

Hydro-Québec to build hydrogen electrolyzer facility powered primarily by hydropower

Hydro-Québec announces plans to build an electrolyzer facility with a capacity of about 90 MW, to supply green hydrogen and oxygen to the Recyclage Carbone Varennes (RCV) plant project. The RCV project will transform non-recyclable waste into biofuels, providing an alternative to landfill. The water electrolysis plant, to be built in Varennes, near Montréal, will […]

Green hydrogen startup receives $2.1M investment from student-led firm
