Week 43: New investments in hydrogen projects

This week you can read about a hydrogen city, a project in Netherland linking hydrogen to solar power and new exciting investments in hydrogen projects.

 

World’s greenest city in Australia

Greater Springfield has plans to be the world’s greenest city. Within 2038 it is planned that 100% of Greater Springfield’s power will be delivered through renewable sources. To reach 100% renewable Greater Springfield will embrace Hydrogen as part of its Energy Solution. A key element of this solution is likely to be the use of hydrogen as an energy storage medium, hydrogen bus network and hydrogen refueling.


Former Shipping company investing in hydrogen

19th of October, Saga Tankers announced new investment strategy within renewable energy. Following the renewable strategy, the company change its name to Saga Pure and will divest non-core assets. Bjørn Simonsen, a former leader position in NEL, has been appointed as Chief Exclusive Officer (CEO). Wednesday Saga Pure announced an investment in Everfuel A/S, an integrated green hydrogen fuel company positioned to capitalize on the EUR multi-billion hydrogen heavy-duty fuel market. The market is now opening in Europe.


 

Hydrogen production linked to solar plant

Together with Netherland’s biggest energy network company Alliander, the German renewable developer BayWa r.e and its Dutch subsidiary GroenLeven will study how hydrogen production linked to an adjacent 50MW solar plant could reduce grid congestion. The pilot project is expected to be operational by late 2021

One step closer to hydrogen trains in Italy

As mentioned earlier, Italy is next in line implementing hydrogen to rail transport. Wednesday, FS Italiane and Snam signed a momentum of understanding (MoU) to collaborate on a study which will evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of hydrogen rail transport. The study will consider new business models relating to the development of hydrogen rail transport in Italy.


 

Green Hysland founded by EU

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) of the European Commission has selected the project Green Hysland in the Balearic Islands to start negotiations for an EU grant agreement valued at 10 million EUR. Green Hysland will generate, distribute and use at least 300 tons of renewable hydrogen locally per year, produced from solar energy on the island of Mallorca. The project will be the first Southern European Flagship project and it will create a green hydrogen ecosystem in the Balearic Islands. The project is a part of the Spanish «Hydrogen Roadmap«.
