The leaders of some of the world’s largest oil and gas companies along with car manufacturers agreed on Tuesday to push for broader global use and greater investment in the use of hydrogen to help reduce emissions and halt global warming.
The new hydrogen fuel cell train Coradia iLint will begin circulating in 2018 in Germany and will be the first completely emission free solution for non-electrified railway lines.
Hydrogen, oxygen, solar and wind energy ... The AQUASEF project has developed a technology for the aquaculture sector enabling the producer to replace the commercial oxygen using renewable energies and store energy in the form of hydrogen. The energy savings associated with this innovation amounts to approximately 30 percent. Validation for its use in real production systems has been carried out at the premises of one of the project partners, the company Esteros de Canela, in Ayamonte.
The 21st edition of the World Hydrogen Energy Congress WHEC 2016 held over four days in Zaragoza ended yesterday. At the end, its president, Javier Brey, took stock and recalled "Spain should know that hydrogen is one opportunity that can produce a sustainable and local fuel, and that this fuel can move its transport, industry and households."
Next 29th January in Chiang Mai, a city of Thailand, the doors of the Phi Suea House will open,. It is the first house in the world to be powered through solar energy 24 hours a day, thanks to the hydrogen storage system installed inside the home. It is a house that will supply power not only to one family but to four in addition to several other support buildings.
Several companies plan to launch an initiative based on the production of hydrogen from wind power between the Japanese cities of Yokohama and Kawasaki. Their aim is to demonstrate that it is possible to establish supply chains with neutral carbon balance across sectors, from power generation to automotive fuels.
There is a fuel that is still unknown to the majority of society: hydrogen. Did you know that space travel would be impossible without hydrogen? Or that it is the most versatile and abundant chemical element existing? It could be the business of the future, because it can be stored, used as vehicle fuel or gas booster for home use.
It's been a couple of years when we reported that an engineer from the European Space Agency, Johan Steelant was preparing a prototype of an airplane powered by hydrogen, and just a few weeks ago a round-the world trip in a solar plane began. Now a new special hydrogen planed is being announced: with three floors and zero emissions it would transport 755 passengers.
Only a year ago an E.ON plant using renewable electricity to power electrolysis equipment that turns water into hydrogen was inaugurated. It is located in Falkenhagen, East Germany, and the company has confirmed its successful operation, as it currently feeds more than two million kWh of hydrogen into the gas supply network.
