PtX atlas shows worldwide potential

Many regions of the world can be considered prime locations for the production of green hydrogen and renewably manufactured synthetic fuels. How much actual potential each area has to offer, though, has now been revealed in detail in the first-ever global power-to-x atlas. The assessment of each site’s technical and economic potential is based on ...

HyGlass – process heat for industrial applications

Hydrogen is currently being discussed as a decarbonisation option for many sectors, some of them very different, from the transport sector to process heat in industry. The publicly funded research project HyGlass is investigating how hydrogen and natural gas-hydrogen mixtures can be used to decarbonise the energy-intensive high-temperature processes in the glass industry ...

Novel compression concept for hydrogen refueling stations based on metal hydrides

Gas compression is a key process for transporting, distributing, storing and dispensing hydrogen. It accounts for a relevant share of costs and energy consumption in most hydrogen supply chains from initial hydrogen sourcing to final hydrogen use. Today, various compression technologies are applied, depending on use cases, flow rates, and input and output pressure levels ...

Digital prototypes improve FCs and electrolysers

The development of a real prototype is time-consuming and expensive. Mathematical models make it possible to better understand the physical and chemical processes in a fuel cell or an electrolyser. A simulation helps to create new approaches and designs in Lobar ...

Visions for Heligoland

Electrolytic green hydrogen from offshore wind Heligoland could, in future, become the new focal point for offshore hydrogen from the North Sea. The remote German island occupies a strategic central position in the German Bight and has excellent port infrastructure, making it ideally placed for a proposed hydrogen hub and liquid carrier supply chain. Under ...

Europe has set the course for the H2 economy

Guest article by Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, CEO of Hydrogen Europe In January 2020, Hydrogen Europe's Executive Board published a visionary paper outlining the path to ramp up a hydrogen economy with twice 40 GW of electrolysis capacity in Europe and the neighbourhood. At that time, it was not yet foreseeable what a ground-breaking character this position ...

Professional driving – with hydrogen

Kurt-Christoph von Knobelsdorff The debate about the future use of hydrogen is in full swing. At the moment, many different opinions are clashing; after all, the energy industry is also about re-sorting the balance of power. Sometimes, however, it is almost frightening to observe the fierce battles that are being fought, especially in the social ...

Carbon neutrality can’t be achieved without hydrogen

Interview with Rainer Baake, director of the Climate Neutrality Foundation For years, Rainer Baake was seen as one of the staunchest skeptics of hydrogen and fuel cell technology. During his tenure as state secretary at the German economy and energy ministry (2014 to 2018) and the environment ministry (1998 to 2005) he acquired a reputation ...

German-American takeover

It also works the other way round: While mostly large US corporations take over foreign companies, in this case it is a German company that has bought up ViCTORi, LLC. At the beginning of July, the Eberspächer Group announced that it had acquired 100 per cent of the North American compressor manufacturer from Boulder, Colorado ...

THE E-JOURNAL ON

hydrogen and fuel cells

H2-international is the English-language e-journal of choice for everyone who wants to stay at the forefront of news about hydrogen and fuel cells. In-depth articles about science, technology and the latest developments keep readers up to date on advances in the hydrogen and fuel cell sector as well as the electric vehicle and the energy storage market. The focus is on detailed yet clearly written news stories by industry journalists and R&D experts.

In-depth news articles on hydrogen, fuel cells, energy storage and electric transportation.

The e-journal is intended for readers who are looking for in-depth news articles on hydrogen, fuel cells, energy storage and electric transportation. The main audience consists of professionals and executives working in all parts of the energy market.. This group comprises decision makers at production and trading companies, representatives for associations, government agencies as well as universities, and staff members at gas companies, carmakers and their suppliers.

The publisher Sven Geitmann, owner and founder of the Hydrogeit publishing house, had taken an intense interest in hydrogen and fuel cells as early as 1997 and became a contributor to energieportal24 and H2Report in 2000. After he wrote a number of technical books, he founded his own publishing company in the northwest of Berlin. In 2005, he took on responsibility for the former “H2Tec” magazine, which he renamed “HZwei”. This trade publication soon boasted a revamped design and more issues per year and grew into the quarterly must-read for everyone following the hydrogen and fuel cell market.

In 2015, Hydrogeit Verlag created the global English-language edition H2-international. Since then, it has kept readers in all corners of the world up to date on what’s happening in the sector.
