The Clean Hydrogen Partnership 2022 Awards were announced during European Hydrogen Week in Brussels. These Awards celebrate projects that have achieved excellence in clean hydrogen technologies research and innovation. The result for the European H2 Valley 2022 Award was a triple valley success. The three winning valleys are HEAVENN in the Netherlands, Basque Hydrogen Corridor in Spain (BH2C), and eFarm in Germany.
The Scot2Ger study, led by industry and supported by the public sector, has found that Scotland is perfectly placed to become an exporter of green hydrogen to a ready-made market in Germany. This collaborative study of Scottish production and export potential shows that Scotland can answer the call of the growing German market for clean, green hydrogen as early as 2025. It concludes that Scotland’s renewable energy and hydrogen capabilities could supply globally significant demand as Germany fast-tracks the switch from fossil fuels.
The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report was released today. The report finds that 2010-2019 average annual global greenhouse gas emissions were at their highest levels in human history, but the rate of growth has slowed.
“It’s now or never, if we want to limit global warming to 1.5°C (2.7°F),” said IPCC Working Group III Co-Chair Professor Jim Skea. “Without immediate and deep emissions reductions across all sectors, it will be impossible.”
The Working Group III report on Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change provides an updated global assessment of climate change mitigation progress and pledges, and examines the sources of global emissions. It explains developments in emission reduction and mitigation efforts, assessing the impact of national climate pledges in relation to long-term emissions goals.
SHFCA member SSE Renewables has today released details for 2000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen production at their existing Gordonbush Wind Farm, near Brora in the Highlands of Scotland. The proposed development consists of a green hydrogen production facility and a battery storage system which will be located within the existing infrastructure of their 110MW Gordonbush Wind Farm. During peak production it is anticipated that approximately 8 tonnes of green hydrogen would be produced per day.
The Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit will give updates on the European Hydrogen & Fuel Cells market and its developments, as well as focusing on current challenges for the industry such as the current and future status of hydrogen infrastructure for the automotive sector in Europe, the forecast on its regulatory framework, and the production of green hydrogen, among others. Over the two days, the event will give you in-depth perspective on novel technologies and solutions, the road towards achieving massive production of green hydrogen in Europe.
The H2FC Fair exhibit area at Hannover Messe will feature 200+ exhibitors from 25 countries will present their latest products and developments on a 5.000 exhibition area. International corporations, SMEs and research institutes showcase the full spectrum of the industry. The combination of the exhibition, two forum areas and numerous networking events is worldwide just unique for 28 years.
Join SHFCA at our industry's biggest networking event to hear about the newest trends and see the cutting-edge technology on the All-Energy & Dcarbonise exhibition showfloor. All forms of renewable energy will be covered as well as energy systems, energy integration and transition, hydrogen, the grid and networks, energy storage, finance and funding, community and local energy and much more.
