Honda and JAXA team up for renewable energy system for space

The ‘circulative renewable energy system’ would provide oxygen, hydrogen and electricity to human outposts for an extended period of time

Petrochemicals giant INEOS launches new clean hydrogen business

It will be headquartered in the UK and is part of the company’s drive towards net zero carbon emissions

Ways2H and Local Power partner to develop hydrogen microgrids

The firms say the advanced microgrids will be made up of hydrogen generators, solar panels, battery storage and heating automation

In Focus: Hydrogen

Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical substance in the universe – but how can it help deliver net zero?

Green hydrogen production ‘could become cost-competitive by 2030’

A new report says the method of “splitting” the gas from water using renewable electricity could become as affordable as currently predominant methods that require the use of natural gas as a feedstock

New hydrogen site causes a bubble in Denmark

The Air Liquide facility can produce around 500kg of the gas a day without emitting carbon dioxide

New catalyst edges closer to hydrogen production from seawater

A new discovery means the process can be undertaken without creating harmful gases

First multi-megawatt gas-to-power plant in North America enters operation

The 2.5MW facility produces renewable hydrogen whilst also providing grid services to Ontario’s System Operators

Solar-to-hydrogen efficiency record broken

The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has broken the world record for solar hydrogen production. Scientists there managed to acheive a solar-to-hydrogen efficiency level of 16.2%, smashing the previous record of 14%. The process uses photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells to split water and make hydrogen using sunlight as the only energy input. The record-setting PEC […]

New power-to-gas facility launched in Germany

A 2MW power-to-gas (P2G) pilot system which will help store excess wind generated from turbines in the gas grid has been inaugurated in eastern Germany. Located in Falkenhagen, the plant (pictured) will use the wind power to transform water into hydrogen via a process called electrolysis – a technology considered key to storing excess renewable […]
