Wabtec, National Labs Collaborate on Carbon Reduction
Publish Date: 11/14/2022

Researchers from the multidisciplinary team last week kicked off the project, which is part of Wabtec’s dual path technology approach on hydrogen power for rail, and celebrated the installation of the company’s single-cylinder dual-fuel locomotive engine in the National Transportation Research Center, a Department of Energy Office of Science user facility located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tenn. Last year, Wabtec announced a collaboration on fuel cells with General Motors (GM).

“We are adapting our plans for domestic production of green hydrogen from five gigawatts to ten gigawatts of electrolyser capacity by 2030,” Scholz noted.

“This will only meet one-third of the expected demand. The majority needs to come from abroad.”

‘Hydrogen road map’: The lightest element can play a heavy-duty role in Michigan’s clean-energy transition
Publish Date: 9/23/2022

In the near term, Michigan’s main hydrogen-fuel opportunities are in the transportation sector, specifically medium- and heavy-duty trucks on interstate highways, according to the report. Many of those trucks are not good candidates for replacement with battery-powered electric vehicles.

In addition to medium- and heavy-duty trucks, a potential near-term Michigan application of hydrogen fuel is long-distance ferries, like those that cross Lake Michigan between Ludington, Michigan, and Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and that carry national park visitors to Isle Royale, according to the report. Battery-electric ferries are better-suited for shorter routes.

The report also recommended further exploration of hydrogen as a fuel to power Great Lakes freighters, as well as Amtrak and freight trains on Chicago to Detroit/Port Huron routes.

Five charts on hydrogen’s role in a net-zero future
Publish Date: 10/25/2022

Hydrogen could play a central role in helping the world reach net-zero emissions by 2050. As a complement to other technologies, including renewable power and biofuels, hydrogen has the potential to decarbonize industries including steel, petrochemicals, fertilizers, heavy-duty mobility (on and off-road), maritime shipping, and aviation, as well as to support flexible power generation (among other applications). In 2050, hydrogen could contribute more than 20 percent of annual global emissions reductions.
