ITM Power has officially launched its third public access hydrogen refuelling station (HRS) and the second HRS in London at the Centre of Engineering Manufacturing Excellence CEME, in Rainham East London.
Clean energy is electric energy generated by utilizing renewable and non-renewable technologies with zero or lowest feasible emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), criteria pollutants, and toxic air contaminants onsite. Deploying carbon-free clean energy systems is the best option that will reduce pollution and tackle the issue of environmental and population costs due to the increasing global energy demand. From the current cost perspective, clean energy is also capable of being permanently de-coupled from the oil and gas markets.
The Orkney Islands have over 50MW of installed wind, wave, and tidal capacity, generating over 46GWhr per year of renewable power, and has been a net exporter of electricity since 2013. Unfortunately, the wind turbines at Shapinsay and Eday, two of the Orkney islands, are often ‘curtailed’, losing on average more than 30% of their annual output. In addition, their electricity output is limited by grid capacity restrictions in Orkney.
ITM Power’s wind-powered hydrogen refueling station in South Yorkshire is the first of its kind in the UK. © ITM Power Hydrogen energy system manufacturer, ITM Power, has launched its first public access hydrogen refueling station at the Advanced Manufacturing Park, just off the M1, Junction 33 in South Yorkshire, UK. The site, which as
Sea water provides a ready supply of one half of the Hydrogen-On-Demand equation. (cc) Mados The promise of the Hydrogen Economy is clean, cheap fuel that can be used to power everything from industrial transportation and utility electricity to smart phones and the family car. The reality is that hydrogen has, so far, proven difficult
Government funding is creating clean energy jobs across the U.S. (cc) Wayne National Forest Despite the recent controversy surrounding the federal government’s investment in clean energy initiatives, the U.S. Department of Energy is demonstrating the positive impact such investment is having on American employment numbers. One day before Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman highlights
Fuel cells like this one convert hydrogen into electricity with only water and heat as byproducts. (cc) Intelligent Energy The U.S. Department of Energy has announced nearly $7 million over five years for independent cost analyses that will support research and development efforts for fuel cells and hydrogen storage systems. The four projects – in
A scanning electron microscope image of tiny silicon pillars, used to absorb light. When dotted with the new catalyst and exposed to sunlight, these pillars efficiently generate hydrogen gas from the hydrogen ions liberated by splitting water. Each pillar is approximately two micrometers in diameter. Technical University of Denmark Scientists have engineered a cheap, abundant
