Maritime transportation remains one of the most emission-intensive sectors, generating more pollution than road transportation. Several exciting projects have recently been announced to use hydrogen and fuel cells to decarbonize shipping.
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is a bill that includes provisions to accelerate domestic investment in clean energy technologies and solutions, including hydrogen and fuel cells.
„A small step for man, a big step for mankind!“ That’s the best way, to sum up, the news about the unique project of the American company Space Perspective, which opens a new chapter in the history of space tourism. The Neptune spaceship is the world’s first non-emission hydrogen spacecraft designed for commercial trips to space.
Spain’s energy policy: move away from coal and nuclear power. Emphasis on gas. Will there be a place for hydrogen?
Spain’s energy policy in the short and long term is to increase the share of RES in final energy consumption. Hydrogen will play an important role in this, with more projects underway.
On July 13, the European Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research, and Energy (ITRE) presented a proposal to update the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive, increasing their share of member states‘ energy mixes by another 5% over the Fit for 55 climate package proposed just a year ago.
Europe’s energy crisis – Expert Council on Energy Security and Climate made recommendations for Poland
At the end of June, the informal Council of Experts on Energy Security and Climate published a position paper on the need to update the assumptions of Poland’s Energy Policy until 2040, so that they correspond to the current situation in Europe and the escalating energy crisis.
The United States is accelerating the construction of a hydrogen economy. In their strategy ‚Road map to a US Hydrogen Economy. Reducing emissions and driving growth across the nation‘, they make it clear that the US economy’s demand for hydrogen fuel in 2050 will be over 63 million tonnes.
SES Hydrogen and Szkoła Główna Służby Pożarniczej establish cooperation in the area of safety and development
letter of intent on research and development cooperation in the field of hydrogen technologies and safety. This is the first agreement of this kind in Poland.
SES Hydrogen has officially joined the ranks of Hydrogen Europe, the leading organization representing European companies and stakeholders in the hydrogen and fuel cell technology value chain.
The SES Hydrogen boiler is a response to the needs of the changing thermal power sector in Poland and Europe, which like other areas of the economy is facing the challenge of decarbonization and increasing the share of RES in the production of heat.
SES Hydrogen representatives are involved in the cooperation within the Project „Conducting Entrepreneurial Discovery Process within Smart Labs“ in the field of hydrogen technologies, implemented by PwC on behalf of the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development (PARP).
Decarbonization of industry was mentioned as the third objective of the Polish Hydrogen Strategy by 2030 with a view to 2040. However, it is already foreseeable that this will be extremely difficult. Both Polish and European industries continue to be one of the most emissions-intensive industries, with more than 70% of their energy needs supplied by conventional fuels.
SES Hydrogen S.A. qualified for the Permitting Working Group of the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance
SES Hydrogen is actively involved in initiatives to build a stable hydrogen market in Europe. To this end, in February Company joined one of the Working Groups of the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance (ECHA).
Increasing the share of RES in the energy mix of countries is one of the primary objectives of the energy transformation of national economies. However, their instability is an obstacle, which generates the necessity to look for tools for effective energy storage, also in a long-term perspective.
The cooperation aims to establish relations and business contacts on the promising hydrogen and renewable energy market in Spain.
In today’s H2 Safety article, we focus on an extremely important topic – electrolyzers. These devices enable production of hydrogen by electrolysis. If we use renewable energy to carry out this process, we get fully zero-emission, environmentally friendly hydrogen.
We’ve been writing about hydrogen as the fuel of the future for a long time now. Its importance as an alternative fuel in transport is also emphasized by the Polish Hydrogen Strategy and it puts its use as the second of its key goals.
Motorsport is investing in hydrogen – Formula 1 is betting on hydrogen cars, and the first Gaussin hydrogen truck started in the Dakar
We have been talking about the possibilities of using hydrogen in all areas of our daily lives for a long time now. Interestingly, representatives of international sports are also more and more willing to use it. Hydrogen was already present at last year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, where it was used to power the Olympic torch, as well as the entire Olympic village. The „fuel of the future“ is now being used in other sports, this time in motorsports.
The everyday use of hydrogen as fuel raises safety concerns. However, if we dig deeper and understand the unique properties of hydrogen and learn how to handle it, it has the potential to become the best alternative to conventional fuels currently in use.
Objective 1. Implement hydrogen technologies in the energy industry. Is hydrogen the answer to the energy crisis?
The Polish energy sector requires transformation. Experts have been proving for a long time that the outdated thermal energy sector no longer meets climate requirements and will soon start generating significant losses, also in economic terms. An immediate modernization of current plants is necessary, and as the Polish Hydrogen Strategy shows, hydrogen is one of the most important tools for its implementation.
Will rising energy prices and emissions penalties make electric cars no longer viable alternative to internal combustion engines?
Electric vehicles (EV/BEV) are undeniably considered a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to internal combustion vehicles.
