Coverage of hydrogen since May 29, 2024.

New project aims to make Atlantic Canada a greenhydrogen research hub

"...Commercially, green hydrogen is produced using a process called water electrolysis, in which an electrolyzer powered by a renewable energy source such as wind or solar splits fresh water into hydrogen and oxygen. Unlike other methods of producing hydrogen, which can involve the use of natural gas, coal, or non-renewable energy, green hydrogen does not result in any greenhouse gas emissions. A hindrance to more widespread use is that commercial proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers require precious metals as catalyst materials on its anode (iridium) and cathode (platinum)..."


World's first hydrogen-powered commercial ferry set to operate on San Francisco Bay, officials say

"...Frank Wolak, president and CEO of the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association, said the ferry is meaningful because its hard to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vessels..."

New BC Hydro program for installation of rooftop solar, battery-storage systems

"...“By ramping up B. C. 's production of clean energy and using it more efficiently, we can drive economic growth for communities all over the province and ensure households, businesses and industries can power up with clean energy, from renewable electricity like wind and solar to biofuels, hydrogen and renewable natural gas,” Osborne said..."


What Is There to Debate About U.S. Clean Hydrogen Incentives?

"...Evolved Energy found that, cumulatively, the Three Pillars avoid 192 million to 416 million metric tonnes of CO2 (MtCO2) through 2030, and even more in the years beyond. Some studies also examine impacts of the proposed flexibility, with Rhodium Group, for example, estimating that a poorly administered 5% allowance that uses fossil fuels rather than clean energy could emit up to 1. 5 billion MtCO2 through 2035, when the credit is slated to expire..."


Australian opposition puts nation's first nuclear power plants in its energy plan ahead of elections

"...MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Australias main opposition party on Wednesday announced plans to build Australias first nuclear power plants as early as 2035, arguing the governments policies for decarbonizing the economy with renewable energy sources including solar, wind turbines and green hydrogen would not work..."


Ballard signs partnership deal with Vertiv for backup power systems for data centres

"...Nicolas Pocard, vice-president of marketing and strategic partnership at Ballard, says the agreement allows the companies to work together to offer cost-effective, zero greenhouse gas emission fuel cell backup power solutions that are scalable..."


Natural resources remain backbone of Canadas trade and prosperity : op-ed

"...Canada is a mid-sized economy accounting for roughly 2 per cent of global production. Within North America, we represent less than one-tenth of the collective output of the three national economies. Canada is also an open economy that relies on cross-border flows of trade, investment and knowledge to sustain our high living standards..."


Alberta government criticizing clean electricity targets, incentivizing carbon capture at Global Energy Show

"...Albertas energy policy was centre stage at the Global Energy Show in Calgary on Tuesday..."


Pass or flunk? Canada's clean-energy report card

"...These provinces were the only two to score the lowest possible ranking on the Clean Energy Canada scorecard. The Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut were not graded because of the unique challenges these jurisdictions face. Screenshot of the Clean Energy Canada scorecardAlberta isn’t living up to its potential to be a renewable energy power house, stated the report..."
