Water electrolysis is recognised as the most promising method of hydrogen production. Especially when it is based on the use of renewable electricity, guaranteeing the production of clean hydrogen for industry, transport, and energy.
Europe is striving to decarbonize all sectors and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. A major challenge, especially in Poland, is the heating sector, which is increasingly feeling the pressure to modernize and use alternative solutions. One of these is hydrogen, specifically a hydrogen boiler, which will enable carbon-free heat generation.
The end of the year and the beginning of a new one is undeniably the best time for a little recap. A lot was going on at SES Hydrogen Energy in 2023. Likewise, the hydrogen market in Europe and around the world. All driven by strengthened regulations and large financial instruments. We invite you to read our summary of 2023!
Analysis: Hydrogen in heating. Our goal is to support the decarbonization of district heating in an efficient and cost-effective manner
In today’s article, Bartosz Ostrowski, an Analyst at SES Hydrogen Energy, looks at the state of the sector and the key question of the viability of implementing hydrogen as a heat source for investment projects.
Green hydrogen – until a few years ago there was little talk about this fuel. So why is it today being called a key tool for decarbonization and put at the center of discussions about the future of energy worldwide? You’ll find out in our article today.
Hydrogen and decarbonized gas market package – there is a preliminary agreement on common rules for internal markets for renewable gases, natural gas, and hydrogen
In late November, the EU Council and Parliament reached a preliminary agreement on a directive establishing common rules for the internal markets for renewable and natural gases and hydrogen. The directive, part of the hydrogen and decarbonized gas market package aims to facilitate the penetration of renewable and low-carbon gases into the energy system.
SES Hydrogen Energy, the Municipality of Śrem together with Śrem TBS and Con-Project have signed a contract for the design of a housing estate and a hydrogen boiler house in Śrem
The Śrem Museum hosted a signing ceremony for the design of a new hydrogen-heated housing development on Farna Street, which will be implemented by Con-Project Sp. z o.o. in cooperation with SES Hydrogen Energy as part of an investment by Śrem TBS Sp. z o.o. and the Municipality of Śrem. Within the framework of the project, SES Hydrogen Energy, whose main shareholder is WSE-listed Sescom SA, will design the first hydrogen boiler plant for residential buildings in Poland.
The development of the hydrogen economy depends on the creation of both centralized and distributed hydrogen production and distribution systems. Hydrogen hubs will play a key role here, which are particularly important from the perspective of increasing the use of renewable energy sources and on-site hydrogen production.
Hydrogen buses in cities – how does a hydrogen bus work? Advantages, barriers, and emissions generated
Hydrogen buses are becoming more and more popular every year. Wrocław, Poznań, Gdańsk, Piła – these are just some of the large and smaller Polish cities that decide to include hydrogen buses in low-emission public transport fleets. Let’s look at the possibilities offered using hydrogen as a fuel in public transport.
The beginning of the month officially opened the transition period for the EU’s CBAM, which covers hydrogen and ammonia.
It’s time to summarize this year’s edition of one of the largest conferences related to hydrogen, technologies, and the use of the new fuel in promising areas of the Polish and European economy – Polish Conference on Hydrogen Technologies PCHET 2023.
The building sector is key to achieving the EU’s decarbonization and climate goals. More energy-efficient and ecological buildings will also directly improve the quality of life of citizens. Their renovation is to be ensured by the EPBD directive defining new, more stringent energy standards for buildings.
In this series, we try to answer questions circulating on the web and increasingly appearing in the public debate to bring closer the potential of hydrogen as a fuel and make knowledge about it more familiar.
Energy Efficiency Directive adopted. Will a hydrogen boiler answer the need for carbon-free district heating networks by 2050?
Negotiations on new provisions of the Energy Efficiency Directive concluded in July. The reinforced goal is to reduce the EU’s final energy consumption by 11.7% by 2030. The regulations also focus on local heating and cooling plans and a gradual tightening of requirements to create zero-emission heating and cooling networks by 2050.
This is another key step on the way to certification and commercial implementation of the device in late 2024/2025.
The United States has the ambition to remain a pioneer in global energy innovation and a leader in the production and distribution of hydrogen. Road map to a US hydrogen economy is another key step after the Inflation Reduction Plan to achieve this goal.
Hydrogen as an alternative in industry and heating. The road to energy independence of Enterprises in the face of transformation
Companies are facing the challenge of ensuring energy security and independence in the face of the ongoing transition. Climate goals and concern for the local environment are becoming a priority and determining the need to turn to alternative solutions.
We are back with another dose of answers to the most frequently asked questions about hydrogen and its use in the global economy.
Little time, big changes. How will the MCP directive affect the heating and district heating sector in Poland at the beginning of 2025?
We are less than two years away from the entry into force of new regulations for medium combustion facilities, which affect not only thermal and industrial power plants but also many public utilities.
AFIR: Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation – the preliminary agreement would increase the number of hydrogen charging and refueling stations in Europe
The AFIR regulation is part of the Fit for 55, published in July 2021. It aims to ensure a sufficient network of charging and refueling infrastructure for road vehicles and ships in the EU to reduce the carbon footprint of European transportation.
European Hydrogen Bank – a fixed premium per kilogram of hydrogen produced could cut the price of hydrogen by at least half in the coming years
The first European auction, worth some €800 million, is expected to take place this fall. Will the European Hydrogen Bank initiative set up by the European Commission with a budget of €3 billion have an impact on the development of the hydrogen market and maintaining EU competitiveness?
On Monday, February 13, the European Commission proposed detailed rules defining renewable hydrogen. Two delegated acts required under the Renewable Energy Directive were adopted for this purpose.
Many questions are floating around about the potential of green hydrogen and its role in the energy transition. To address the doubts that arise, in this piece we will go back to basics and answer all the most frequently asked questions.
So far, there has been little talk in the industry about using geothermal energy to produce hydrogen. Due to the technical advancement of the installations and lower costs, projects have focused primarily on solar and wind energy. Nonetheless, one of the first consortiums to produce hydrogen from geothermal was announced last year.
During an event organized by the Pomerania Regional Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with BGK Bank, the Pomeranian Special Economic Zone, and the Export Development Center, the official signing of an agreement for SES Hydrogen to join the 3W initiative took place.
Without a doubt, for the second part of the adventures of eccentric detective Benoit Blanc, which hit the screens at the end of the year, the Oscar for the supporting role should go to hydrogen. The problem, however, is the misleading way it is portrayed, which we want to confront today.
