Hydrogen’s moment is here at last; After decades of doubts the gas is coming of age
Kerry Lines Up Pledges to Scrub Emissions from Carbon-Heavy
The commitments will target four sectors initially: aviation, shipping, steel and trucking. Technologies to cut pollution from them exists, such as sustainable jet fuel, ships running on methanol, steel made from green hydrogen and electric trucks. But those solutions often are a lot more expensive than fossil fuel-reliant routes, and the product supply isn’t always available at scale.
CP’s Hydrogen-Powered Locomotive Pilot Project
CP’s Hydrogen Locomotive Program aims to develop North America's first line-haul hydrogen-powered locomotive. The program involves retrofitting a line-haul locomotive with hydrogen fuel cells and battery technology to drive the locomotive's electric traction motors.
In the fall of 2021, the first hydrogen locomotive, "H2 0EL", which stands for Hydrogen - Zero Emissions Locomotive, will be prepped for its official painting and launch.
Bill lays out framework for a hydrogen economy in NM
By “leap-frogging” ahead of other states with a statutory framework to build the industry, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham hopes to tap into new federal funding to help convert New Mexico into the nation’s premier “center of excellence” for a new hydrogen economy.
“There might be other states, we hope, that join in this effort,” Lujan Grisham said on “Everything About Hydrogen,” a national podcast program. “But that’s how we view this – that we become the epicenter of hydrogen development, innovation and delivery.”
Decisive action by governments is critical to unlock growth for low-carbon hydrogen; Investment is increasing in hydrogen projects to support the clean energy transition, but further efforts are needed to reduce costs and encourage wider use across sector
“It is important to support the development of low-carbon hydrogen if governments are going to meet their climate and energy ambitions,” said Fatih Birol, the IEA Executive Director, who is launching the report today at the Hydrogen Energy Ministerial Meeting hosted by Japan. “Governments need to take rapid actions to lower the barriers that are holding low-carbon hydrogen back from faster growth, which will be important if the world is to have a chance of reaching net zero emissions by 2050.”
Emerson and BayoTech Team to Accelerate Scaling Production and Distribution of Low-Cost, Low-Carbon Hydrogen
SoCalGas Among First in the Nation to Test Hydrogen Blending in Real-World Infrastructure and Appliances in Closed Loop System
Preliminary results of testing that began earlier this summer show the household natural gas appliances are compatible with up to a 20% hydrogen blend. These initial findings are consistent with previous international research and lab testing. This effort provides key operational and safety experience, including testing for pipeline leaks, that will enable SoCalGas to implement larger scale hydrogen blending demonstrations. SoCalGas continues to test the impacts of blending hydrogen with natural gas on pipelines and appliances.

Galán: 'A European green-hydrogen boom will not happen without urgent financial support'
“But,” he says, “we need to be fast”.
“Countries like the United States are already moving fast… they are very ambitious, they would like to reach a price of $1/kg by 2030, and they would like to [offer financial] support to achieve this target.”

Bill Gates secures hundreds of millions from U.S. firms for climate fight
The program will initially focus on direct air capture, green hydrogen, long-duration energy storage, and sustainable aviation fuel.
Opinion: Houston can lead 'Earthshot' to cheap, clean hydrogen
So, while it won’t be easy or cheap to transform hydrogen into a fuel to fight climate change, there’s no question the Houston region is the logical place for a clean hydrogen hub.
Boasting a deep pool of engineering and industry talent, world-class university expertise, a growing startup community and vast hydrogen assets, Houston is well positioned to lead in the creation of hydrogen from natural gas and carbon capture. Texas is not only the nation’s largest hydrogen production sector, but we also lead in wind-powered renewable energy and has led in planned solar installations, which will be key to producing low-cost “green” hydrogen.
Plug Power to Build Largest Green Hydrogen Production Facility on the West Coast
As the largest green hydrogen production facility on the west coast, the plant will produce 30 metric tons of liquid green hydrogen daily, serving customers from San Diego to Vancouver. The facility will use a new 300 megawatt zero-carbon solar farm to power 120 megawatts of Plug Power’s state-of-the-art PEM electrolyzers, which split water into hydrogen and oxygen through an electro-chemical process. The California plant joins the company’s growing national network of plants in New York, Tennessee, and Georgia that will supply 500 tons per day of liquid green hydrogen by 2025, replacing 4.3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and 1,000 tons per day globally by 2028.
Linde to construct $17.3m electrolyser plant in New York
In a move that will help New York achieve its climate goals, Linde will construct a proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser plant in Niagara Falls that will produce green hydrogen on a commercial scale – and it is expected to be operational in 2023.
Putting the Howarth & Jacobson Hydrogen Paper in Context: Decarbonization and the Potential Greenhouse Gas Emissions Performance of “Blue” Hydrogen
It appears to us that the paper includes several poor assumptions, is out of line with other analyses, and does not reflect the true value blue hydrogen could have for decarbonization.
The Right Policies Can Incentivize Cleaner “Blue” Hydrogen
Recent research suggests that “blue” hydrogen might not be as beneficial for the climate as its proponents claim. But according to RFF’s Jay Bartlett and Alan Krupnick, blue hydrogen may be far greener with the right policy incentives.

From Hyundai to SK, top Korean companies join hands on hydrogen; 15-member business summit kicks off with plans to invest $37bn by 2030
The council aims to pave the way for stepped-up South Korean exports of hydrogen-related infrastructure as countries around the world chase environmentally friendly energy sources to combat climate change. But with Japanese and European players also making strides, it will need to promote rapid technological development to keep South Korea competitive.
Industry chief: Policymakers must set clear thresholds for low-carbon hydrogen
• 75% CO2 emission saving threshold for clean hydrogen could have been “more ambitious”
• Carbon content should be erected as “new currency” of EU’s emerging hydrogen market
• Upcoming EU certification scheme must ensure that hydrogen is: traceable, trackable, tradeable, transparent, and trustworthy
• “Additionality principle” currently prevents using curtailed wind energy for hydrogen production and must be revised
• Carbon contracts for difference could get hydrogen market off the ground
