Position paper – Heavy‐duty vehicles: Charging and refuelling infrastructure requirements
In addition, a target of around 300 truck‐suitable hydrogen refuelling stations by 2025, and at least 1,000 no later than 2030 should be set. Moreover, one hydrogen refuelling site should be available every 200 km on the TEN‐T core network by 2030. A hydrogen refuelling station for trucks should have a minimum daily capacity of at least six tonnes of H2 with at least two dispensers per stations.
Honda ready for quicker shift to all-electrified lineup, CEO hints

Repurposing existing gas infrastructure to pure hydrogen: ACER finds divergent visions of the future
In order to assess these options, ACER reviewed more than 20 studies focusing on the technical and the cost aspects of repurposing existing gas infrastructure to pure hydrogen. The analysed studies range across various sources and stakeholders, including the gas industry, multi-partner hydrogen initiatives, industry partnerships, academia, think tanks, and others. As a result, ACER developed a summary paper on the technical possibilities for repurposing, based on these available studies. The paper also offers a reflection on the technical and hydrogen market conditions that could trigger the repurposing of natural gas pipelines to pure hydrogen.
AT TOKYO 2020, HYDROGEN SHOWS PROMISE OF A CARBON-FREE FUTURE
Home to thousands of athletes for several weeks, the Olympic Village is one demonstration of how this technology can be used in practice. Built as a miniature hydrogen city, it shows the potential of a first full-scale hydrogen infrastructure. The hydrogen will also fuel athlete buses and heat water in the cafeterias, dormitories and training facilities. After the Games, underground pipes will take hydrogen from a production station to residential blocks. Organisers hope the Olympic Village, as Japan’s first full-scale hydrogen infrastructure, will leave an impression on future generations.
Worldwide Olympic Partner Toyota, which also produced the world’s first hydrogen-powered cars in 2014, will supply approximately 500 Mirai fuel cell vehicles to the Games to help transport staff and officials. Toyota will also deliver 100 hydrogen fuel cell buses (FCBs) to ferry athletes around. Each bus has 10 hydrogen tanks to carry a total of 600 litres.

Chevron and Cummins Announce Strategic Collaboration on Hydrogen
The MOU provides the framework for Chevron and Cummins to initially collaborate on four main objectives: advancing public policy that promotes hydrogen as a decarbonizing solution for transportation and industry; building market demand for commercial vehicles and industrial applications powered by hydrogen; developing infrastructure to support the use of hydrogen for industry and fuel cell vehicles; and exploring opportunities to leverage Cummins electrolyzer and fuel cell technologies at one or more of Chevron’s domestic refineries.
Bloom Energy Unveils Electrolyzer to Supercharge the Path to Low-Cost, Net-Zero Hydrogen
Bloom Energy (NYSE: BE) today unveiled the Bloom Electrolyzer; the most energy-efficient electrolyzer to produce clean hydrogen to date and 15 to 45 percent more efficient than any other product on the market today.

NYPA Testing Green Hydrogen At Brentwood Power Station
Using a GE system, the green hydrogen project team will evaluate different concentrations of hydrogen blended with natural gas at regular intervals and will assess the blend’s effect on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and its overall system and environmental impacts, including nitrogen oxide emissions.
With Hydrogen, the Midwest Can Propel the Energy Transition; The Midwest has all the ingredients to be a leader in the emerging hydrogen economy and private investment is beginning to recognize the potential in the region. But there's more work to be done
And many of those technologies developed in the Midwest are already being deployed. The region has some of the highest wind, solar and carbon-free nuclear generation in the nation. Illinois, for instance, has the most nuclear capacity of any other state with 11 nuclear reactors, which account for more than half of its electricity generation. These carbon-free technologies combined with abundant water supplies from the Great Lakes are the major resources required to produce hydrogen, making the region an ideal production, distribution, and storage center for this technology that can help decarbonize the transportation, industrial, and power generation sectors. Last month, Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm launched the Department of Energy’s “Energy Earthshots” Initiative, to accelerate breakthroughs of more abundant, affordable, and reliable clean energy solutions within the decade. The first Energy Earthshot—Hydrogen Shot—seeks to reduce the cost of clean hydrogen by 80% to $1 per kilogram (note: a kilogram of hydrogen contains about the same energy as a gallon of gasoline).
Cummins CEO Leading the Charge to a Greener Future
The Hydrogen Council, a global CEO-led coalition working to accelerate the energy transition through hydrogen, has announced Linebarger as its new Co-Chair. He will take over the role from Chairman of Toyota Motor Corporation Takeshi Uchiyamada, serving alongside fellow Co-Chair Benoît Potier, Chairman and CEO of Air Liquide.
Amazon, UPS say hydrogen is further down the road than electric
• Amazon expects hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles to be lighter, fuel faster and have longer range than battery-electric vehicles, Middle Mile Fleet Leader Tiffany Nida said during a webinar hosted by the Bipartisan Policy Coalition. "But the technology and the proof points against that are further out," she said.
• "Hydrogen is ... very much part of the future," Thomas F. Jensen, senior vice president for transportation policy at UPS, said during the webinar. "But that future is yet to be defined, frankly."
• Nida and Jensen said their respective employers do foresee hydrogen trucks as part of their fleet mixture. UPS views them as an option for OTR operations in the long term. For Amazon, "the details of that probably [are] further in the future," Nida said.
This Hydrogen-Powered ‘Skateboard’ Truck Can 18 Carry Tons of Freight—Without Carbon Emissions
The versatile system comes in two different versions that are both geared toward eco-friendly freight transportation. Designed for long-haul trucking, the hydrogen-powered setup offers a range of nearly 500 miles and a refueling time of less than 20 minutes. Conversely, the all-electric configuration is intended for shorter stints and promises a range of around 180 miles per charge plus a battery swap that takes just three minutes.

Governor Cuomo Announces New York Will Explore Potential Role of Green Hydrogen as Part of Comprehensive Decarbonization Strategy
To support this effort to study green hydrogen and its possible applications, the state is collaborating with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, joining two hydrogen-focused organizations to inform State decision-making and making $12.5 million in funding available for long duration energy storage technologies and demonstration projects that may include green hydrogen. Additionally, the New York Power Authority, collaborating with the Electric Power Research Institute, General Electric and hydrogen supplier Airgas, will undertake an industry-leading green hydrogen demonstration project at NYPA's natural gas plant on Long Island to evaluate the resource's potential role in displacing fossil fuels from power generation. At the close of this short-term project, peer-reviewed results will be shared with the industry and public so that key learnings can inform decarbonizationefforts.
