Washington: DOUGLAS PUD MOVING FORWARD TO BUILD HYDROGEN PLANT
Publish Date: 7/28/2022

It'll also serve to absorb much of the stress that leads to wear and tear at its river dam known as the Wells Hydroelectric Project.

Meaghan Vibbert with the PUD says the hydrogen plant will take in constant signals that now go to big mechanical equipment at the dam that has to instantly adjust to fluctuations in the regional power grid.

"The idea is to increase our efficiencies and decrease our maintenance necessary on those big units by doing all of the fluctuations there at the hydrogen plant rather than the hydroelectric project," said Vibbert.

Keeping Colorado on Path of Achieving 100% Renewable Energy by 2040: Polis Administration on behalf of the Western Inter-States Hydrogen Hub, Announces a Request for Proposals for Prime Contractor
Publish Date: 7/21/2022

Today, on behalf of Western Inter-States Hydrogen Hub, the Wyoming Energy Authority is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a prime contractor. This position will assist efforts across the four-state region to submit a proposal to the Department of Energy (DOE) for the funding opportunity announcement “Regional Clean Hydrogen Hubs.” If awarded, the prime contractor will neutrally and fairly manage the implementation of the regional hydrogen hub project to drive maximum impact.

SoCalGas Announces the Commissioning of Carbon-Negative Waste-to-Energy Technology at Los Angeles Facility
Publish Date: 7/20/2022

Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced that Kore Infrastructure has successfully begun testing and demonstrating its carbon-negative, waste-to-energy modular system at the utility's Los Angeles facility. The innovative technology is designed to divert organic waste from California landfills and convert it into carbon-negative hydrogen and renewable natural gas (RNG).

Kore plans to demonstrate the production of 99.999% pure hydrogen that would be suitable for fuel cell electric cars, trucks, buses, and trains by the third quarter of 2022. The demonstration facility has the potential to process up to 24 tons per day of organic feedstock and produce up to one metric ton of carbon negative, UltraGreen hydrogen™ per day, enough hydrogen for over 1,400 fuel cell electric cars.

Hydrogen: A Climate Solution
Publish Date: 7/19/2022

Carbon Solutions analysts modeled dozens of typical hydrogen production pathways through the use of peer-reviewed published literature and tools like Argonne National Laboratory’s GREET Lifecycle Model. In addition to the conventional SMR process mentioned above, we also included hydrogen produced via autothermal reforming (ATR), a process similar to SMR. Both the SMR and ATR processes are compatible with carbon capture equipment, leading to deep carbon reductions when captured CO2 is stored permanently. We also studied hydrogen production via electrolysis, where water molecules are split into hydrogen and oxygen through the use of electricity. When powered primarily with zero-carbon electricity from renewables or nuclear power, electrolysis-based hydrogen can provide some of the largest GHG reductions of the pathways we studied.

Hydrogen vs battery trucks | 'H2 may be needed for grid-constrained areas and double shifts, not just long distances'
Publish Date: 7/19/2022

“While logistics operators are aligned with the H2Accelerate view that hydrogen trucking will be required for long-haul, heavy-duty applications due to the operational flexibility it offers, further use cases where hydrogen offers operations advantages over BEVs have been identified,” the eight-page document states. “These include trucks operating in areas with significant grid constraints which will present challenges for BEV charging, and for use cases where vehicles are double shifted, requiring fast refuelling.”

“We are looking into hydrogen as a fuel, following a parallel path,” Rossi continued. “I’m just pulling a figure out of the air here, but we think electric will be 70 per cent of the car park in 2035, but not 100. It depends on usage – high payloads, high performance, very repetitive trips, for example. For us, for high performance, we believe that path could be very promising.”

Tevva: A Universal Battery-Hydrogen Delivery Truck Out Of London
Publish Date: 7/6/2022

While the truck is battery electric at its core, with a battery only range of up to 160 miles (108 kWh), adding the hydrogen energy source will almost double the range to 310 miles. The range extender is a 50 kW hydrogen fuel cell provided by Loop Energy. Tevva conducted rigorous testing with four potential fuel cell suppliers before selecting Loop for its overall performance and form factor. While the traditional control of range extenders is based on the battery falling below a certain state of charge, Tevva’s proprietary software predicts the optimal time to use the range extender by factoring in variables like route, weather and vehicle payload. This allows the fuel cell to be run at a constant lower power, which ultimately creates energy and cost efficiency for truck operators.
