picture Electrolyzer Target: 100 Megawatts
This year’s June issue came with a detailed description of the electrolyzer market and in-depth reports on manufacturers and their products. But of course, the list wasn’t exhaustive, as numerous businesses have entered the segment and much had to be left unsaid. Many of those suppliers exhibited at Hannover Messe, showcasing their latest developments. Considering … Read more
picture Metal Hydride Storage and Reversible High-Temperature Cells
The supply volatility of renewable sources such as solar and wind will need to be countered by powerful and efficient systems that can store the generated energy at any time and make it available as soon as demand requires. One solution to solve this challenge is energy storage in a material such as hydrogen (power-to-gas). … Read more
Next Energy as New DLR Location
The Next Energy research center has gone through uncertain times recently. Last November, the German government did make EUR 7 million per year available to fund the organization, but those millions would only be paid if Next were incorporated into the DLR, the German Aerospace Center. Its integration into the government’s main research organization on … Read more
picture Hydrogen as Baking Industry’s Bread-and-Butter
Demo4Grid is an FCH JU project in the vein of H2Future. It was likewise launched in Austria, in March 2017, and just as H2Future, it has been focusing on green hydrogen. The main differences are the test system, now a 4-megawatt high-pressure alkaline electrolyzer, and the location, this time near Therese Mölk, an industrial bakery … Read more
picture H2 Grid Now Cost-Effective
The German government has set clear targets for emissions reduction, starting at minus 40 percent by 2020, 55 percent by 2030, 70 percent by 2040, and 80 to 95 percent by 2050 compared to 1990 levels. One option to meet these targets is to increase renewable use to at least 80 percent of total market … Read more
picture HPS to Make Homeowners Energy Self-Sufficient
It’s not the first time someone has tried to use hydrogen storage for making homes energy self-sufficient. The latest company to make the attempt is Home Power Solutions, based in Berlin, Germany. When HPS unveiled its Picea unit in March 2017 at the ISH in Frankfurt am Main, the press seemed to be all over … Read more
Blue Hamster Comes Back to Life
Frank Duhlies, the formerly managing director of Mossau Energy based in Aurich, Germany, has already had hands-on experience with small solar-hydrogen units based on his involvement in the design of Blue Hamster, a blue-color hydrogen generator Mossau unveiled at Hannover Messe in 2013 (see July 2013 issue of HZwei). A demonstration system with a 100-kilowatt … Read more
picture Forstmeier Joins BVES
Markus Forstmeier, VP business development at Bavarian-based Electrochaea, has joined the board of the German Energy Storage Association, or BVES for short. During the general meeting in March 2017, Forstmeier was elected to the association’s executive board.
picture German Hydrogen Association Gets New Focus
This year’s general meeting of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, or DWV for short, took place in Erlangen, Germany, on May 12, 2017. Since there were no board elections to be held, the main issue was the association’s new focus. But even an arguably debate-worthy point such as this one was not met … Read more
picture Change from CEP to H2 Mobility
One considerable barrier to establishing hydrogen transportation in Germany is the relatively small number of filling stations that exists across the country. Until the end of 2016, setting up an H2 infrastructure was primarily the task of the Clean Energy Partnership, or CEP for short. This year, responsibility was handed over to H2 Mobility Germany, … Read more
The Changing Face of CEP
The Clean Energy Partnership has decided to continue work beyond the originally planned project duration (until the end of 2016). Some CEP business partners, however, have already left the consortium. CEP’s chair, Thomas Bystry, told H2-internationsl that six businesses had left by April 2017; particularly the energy utilities no longer felt that they were sufficiently … Read more
