👷 The #gas and #hydrogen package is to turn #gas pipelines into aqueducts:

The development of the #hydrogen #economy is to make European pipelines for the supply of #fossil fuels in the form of gas take on a new functionality in the form of hydrogen supply.The long-term perspective is the gas and hydrogen package. It speaks of the energy of the future – said prof. Jerzy Buzek working on the discussed regulation. – This is not there at the moment. It will be an energy industry based on two energy carriers: electricity and hydrogen. Both are not energy sources, because we don’t have hydrogen to use in nature, he said at the European Commission headquarters in Warsaw.Nuclear energy is not to everyone’s liking. is it legitimate This is still somewhat uncertain, but hydrogen will also be produced from nuclear energy, he said. – Biomethane and biomass will be important. In total, this will be 5 to 10 per cent of the total energy turnover. Seventy percent will be electricity and 20 percent will be hydrogen. This is the future in 20-30 years. We are preparing for it for the first time. In 8 years, we are going to start producing 10 million tonnes of renewable hydrogen and we are going to import another… https://bit.ly/3NFQYEg

Not long ago, an #Israeli website said that two domestic #companies will jointly design and manufacture hydrogen fuel cell drones with large payloads to create a “next-generation drone formation” with a longer range.In the context of the current dominance of lithium batteries in the drone market, the release of this news makes people feel that “the time to replace drones with advanced hydrogen fuel cells is not far off”. In fact, there is still a long way to go to move hydrogen fuel cell drones with high payload capacity from the drawing board to the real world. https://uav.huanqiu.com/article/48jlYlDqUYF

📰 The #hydrogen rainbow:

The varieties of hydrogen – green, blue, grey, grey, black, brown, yellow, yellow, turquoise, white and pink – make it a veritable rainbow, but green will eclipse the rest by 2050.#Wood Mackenzie forecasts that global demand for hydrogen will increase by two to six times between now and 2050. According to its Accelerated Energy Transition Scenario (AET-1.5), demand for low-carbon hydrogen reaches 649 million tonnes (Mt) by 2050, with almost 150 Mt of that traded on the seaborne market. That is a huge opportunity.But not all hydrogen is created equal: there is a real rainbow of variety. So what kind of hydrogen would you like to invest in?

🚗 #Hyundai or #Volkswagen, which brand is betting more on #hydrogen?

Hyundai is one of the manufacturers that is most committed to hydrogen, as demonstrated when it presented its #Hydrogen 2040 strategy last year, with which it aims to incorporate this fuel in all its #vehicles, with the aim of promoting a more environmentally friendly model change. The Korean brand’s commitment to #renewable #energies is centred on the use of hydrogen as a fuel. From 2030, all its models will be powered by hydrogen. But hydrogen should not be seen as a fuel to power a combustion engine, which is not efficient, as demonstrated by the BMW 7 Series Hydrogen. The hydrogen vehicle is actually an electric vehicle, except that the battery power does not come from the grid, but from a #fuel cell where the fuel is stored. https://bit.ly/3IySpDi

♻ #Green hydrogen and the role of #reuse and #desalination of #water:

It is clear that the sustainable function of green hydrogen requires the choice of water source used in the #electrolysis process (by stoichiometry, 1 kg of H2 requires 9 kg of water). There will be no #sustainability if the water source has implications of availability disputes with the population or environmental constraints.Therefore, the use of alternative sources (seawater reuse and desalination) are emerging as options for water supply in hydrogen production. It should be noted that the addition of a seawater desalination or water reuse process will undoubtedly increase the energy requirement in the analysis of the total electrolytic hydrogen production cycle. However, this increase in… https://bit.ly/3azu7g1
