RWE has revealed that it has received Sunfire alkaline electrolysis equipment for a pilot project in Germany, while European authorities have reached an agreement on the continent’s renewable energy directive.
ENJOY has ordered two electrolyzers with a total capacity of 2 MW from H-TEC Systems for its factories in Jenbach, Austria. Manufacturer of gas engines said the entire Jenbacher engine product range is likely to be 100% hydrogen ready by 2025. The 2 MW system built in containers produces up to 900 kg of green hydrogen per day and the efficiency of the system is 74%.
Fusion fuel has signed a 10-year sales contract with European developer Hydrogen Ventures for 30 tons of green hydrogen per year. It said fThe first orders will probably be delivered in the last quarter. Hydrogen is produced at Fusion Fuel’s projects in Evora, Portugal, where it aims to increase production capacity to around 50 tons per year by the end of the year. Hydrogen Ventures wants to use hydrogen for mobility applications in Portugal.
Chart Industries and Nikola Corp. have signed a strategic cooperation agreement that includes the development of liquid hydrogen storage tanks and mobile, modular hydrogen refueling stations for rapid deployment. The agreement includes additional plans for cooperation in the development of hydrogen technology for infrastructure and truck fuel systems. “Chart offers premium, fully integrated mobile and modular hydrogen fueling stations for heavy-duty vehicles that provide a quick-to-deploy fueling solution with lower capital requirements.” said an American manufacturer of heavy commercial vehicles. “This mobile gas station lowers the barriers to entry and is an ideal solution for smaller fleets or for all immediate and temporary refueling needs. A dense liquid hydrogen storage and an efficient liquid high-pressure dosing pump also reduce the operating costs of the station.
European Parlament, the European Council and the European Commission have reached a final agreement on the revision of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED3). “The interim agreement stipulates that industry will increase its use of renewable energy by 1.6 percent annually,” the European Council said. “They agreed that 42 percent of hydrogen used in industry should come from renewable fuels of non-biological origin (RFNBOs) by 2030 and 60 percent by 2035.” Countries that can achieve at least a 77% fossil-free hydrogen mix by 2030 could see this target reduced by 20%.
