US researchers have developed new integrated halide perovskite photovoltaic cells, while Fortescue Future Industries has revealed plans to acquire a hydrogen project from Nikolai in Arizona.
Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) says that acquires Nikola’s Phoenix Hydrogen Hub (PHH) project. The companies are working towards a hydrogen supply agreement to support Nikola’s Class 8 zero-emission trucks. PHH is a fast-to-market green hydrogen project in Buckeye, Arizona. Construction activities will proceed in stages according to demand. Hydrogen production is expected by the middle of this decade, but the companies did not comment on the size of the hydrogen investment.
Wien Energie, RheinEnergie, Siemens Energy and Verbund are conducting a joint operational test at Wien Energie’s combined heat and power plant in Vienna, Austria. The partners mix hydrogen with natural gas. “This test is the first of its kind in the world on a commercially used gas and steam turbine plant in this power class.” said Wien Energie. The gas turbine model used in the Donaustadt power plant is used in more than 115 systems in Europe alone.
Wilo launched four modular green hydrogen production systems. According to the German company, the product is available in four different sizes, which can produce electricity that corresponds to the annual needs of either three, five or 20 households. The system uses electrolysis to convert renewable energy into green hydrogen, but it can also use fuel cells to convert the hydrogen back into electrical power.
Enapter has delivered 30 AEM EL 2.1 electrolyzers and 15 DRY 2.1 dryers to a hydrogen filling station in Japan as part of a cooperation agreement with Tokyo Gas. German company said The Senju station is the first commercial hydrogen refueling station using AEM electrolysis in Asia. It added that Enapter’s AEM electrolysers will be used to produce hydrogen on-site for vehicle refueling.
