As part of this agreement, the companies will explore ways to deploy Plug Power’s technology within Phillips 66’s operations, leveraging Plug Power’s experience as a full value chain provider within the hydrogen economy. Plug Power will benefit from Phillips 66’s capabilities as a developer of large-scale energy infrastructure, operator of industrial-scale hydrogen production facilities, and presence in the fuels marketing segment in the U.S. and Europe.

Consensus over hydrogen at COP26 can dramatically speed up the energy transition
Green investment should be funneled to those countries with more space, sunlight, or wind. These are often developing countries, so at the same time, this would allow developed nations to make good on their promise to mobilize $100 billion a year in climate finance.
Where does hydrogen fit into Alberta's energy future?
Hydrogen Key to Meeting Collective US Decarbonization Goals
Hydrogen is uniquely capable of enabling the energy transition as the only zero-emission technology able to produce the intense heat necessary for the industrial production of cement, steel, glass and other materials. And as a versatile energy carrier, hydrogen is also complementary to other low- and zero-carbon fuels -- allowing utilities across the nation to harness energy from wind, solar, and other renewables and incorporate it into the grid system at scale.
Germany’s Hydrogen Industrial Strategy
Germany has an advanced hydrogen strategy and the country is working hard on its implementation. Probably more than a quarter of state funding committed by all 17 countries with hydrogen strategies to date is provided by the German government.
Germany considers only hydrogen produced from renewable electricity to be sustainable in the long term and thus favors green hydrogen. Nevertheless, the precision of the role of already less expensive low-carbon hydrogen (blue and turquoise) as a bridging technology is pending.
As a country with an advanced hydrogen research landscape, Germany seeks to become a leader and exporter of green hydrogen technologies.
Germany expects to stay an energy importer and is building international partnerships to secure its future hydrogen supply.
Developing the Hydrogen Economy In New York
A “hydrogen hub” — a cluster of local hydrogen production, storage and demand — can be a great first step in developing the hydrogen economy. Long Island is well-positioned to become a hydrogen hub, given the high energy demand in the New York City metro area, limited transmission connections, and large offshore wind potential, which could be used to produce green hydrogen. National Grid envisions an integrated net zero energy system with clean electricity and clean fuels like hydrogen meeting demand for power, heat and transport.

Belgium: Federal hydrogen vision and strategy; On the proposal of Energy Minister Tinne Van der Straeten, the Council of Ministers approves the federal hydrogen vision and strategy.
The federal hydrogen strategy aims to prepare Belgium as well as possible for the climate challenges, in addition to the technological and economic challenges of the coming decades. This strategy is part of the European Hydrogen Strategy and is based on four pillars:
positioning itself as an import and transit hub of renewable molecules in Europe
consolidate our leadership in hydrogen technologies
organising a robust hydrogen market
focus on collaboration
We need “blue” hydrogen. And we need to get it right.
Hydrogen is essential to decarbonizing key parts of the economy. While “green” hydrogen could dominate in the long term, “blue” hydrogen can reduce emissions quickly in the near-term – if policy-makers reward appropriate performance.
Estimates of the greenhouse gas impact of “blue” hydrogen span a wide spectrum, primarily driven by assumptions about methane leak rates in the upstream natural gas supply chain and the efficiency of reformers in the production process (particularly the carbon capture portion of those processes). While some recent estimates of these impacts have been quite high, a much lower greenhouse gas footprint for “blue” hydrogen is feasible. We know this because measurements indicate that some gas fields in the U.S. have leak rates as low as 0.3%-0.4% – far lower than the current leak rate (probably in excess of 2%). And we know how strong regulations, based upon established state precedents, can drive much of the needed reductions. Reducing emissions from the natural gas value chain is not just feasible, it’s also politically popular.

Trio Of Sustainable Power Sources To Drive Royal Caribbean Group's Next Class Of Ships Into The Future
The new class of ships, known as 'Project Evolution,' will operate using a trio of power sources including a fuel cell system, battery technology and dual fuel engines using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the main fuel. This hybrid solution, using fuel cell technology, allows the ship to be free of local emissions while at port — another industry first.
NextEra doubles down on green hydrogen, other renewables
NextEra is doubling down on green hydrogen, with plans to build a 500-megawatt wind project to provide power to a hydrogen fuel cell company, the company noted Wednesday in a third quarter earnings call with analysts.
The Florida-based energy giant said it continues to expand its wind portfolio as well, announcing on Wednesday's call a deal by its NextEra Energy Partners limited partnership to acquire a 100-megawatt wind project in California for $280 million, including taking on $150 million in existing project finance debt.

Transforming Texas into a global hydrogen hub
The Center for Houston’s Future and the University of Houston, with support from other key collaborators, conducted assessments to identify opportunities for expanding clean H2 value chains in Texas and to develop a vision and roadmap to enter and expand new markets for H2. The institutions looked beyond the considerable existing H2 production and use in the Houston Gulf Coast region, which is predominantly used for oil refining and petrochemical feedstock. The purpose of this article is to summarize the outcomes of that work.
Ohio River Valley Hydrogen and CCS Hub Market Formation
This LEP workshop focused on the Ohio River Valley as a potential leader in the formation of a regional hub for hydrogen and CCS where tri-state (Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia) cooperation could help meet low-carbon targets while preserving and creating jobs in the region.
Microsoft reaffirms strong hydrogen commitments as it proves longevity of fuel cells
When Microsoft first looked into hydrogen fuel cells to power its data centres, suppliers told them they hadn’t run them for very long. However, the technology giant soon proved that such technologies can in-fact run for multiple days.
That’s what David Fernandes, Business Strategist at Microsoft, told H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Summit today (Oct 19). On the anecdote, he continued, “We actually ran our I.T. load off hydrogen fuel cells for 48 straight hours. And we were able to swap our hydrogen supply while we were doing this.
“The other concept we proved out here is that you can pretty easily scale this technology.”
Why Utah aims to be the 'hydrogen hub for the crossroads of the West'
As Rep. Melissa Ballard, R-North Salt Lake, put it: "We're going to be the hydrogen hub for the crossroads of the West."
"We have the opportunity at utility-scale to produce and distribute from many applications and we have Utah manufacturers who are making these applications for Utahns and also to be distributed across the country," she continued.
MTD's unveils hydrogen-powered buses: 'The ultimate expression' of sustainability
“We want to go zero emissions, but we want to do it in a way that allows us to continue to make our routes and schedules serve the community’s needs instead of our vehicle’s needs,” Gnadt said. “Hydrogen electric does that.”
The MTD consulted with the few others agencies that have adopted the hydrogen-electric buses. There’s one in Flint, Mich., and some model in Canton, Ohio. AC Transit of Oakland, Calif., has run hydrogen-fuel-cell buses since 2000.
