Following a competitive tender, The Scottish Government has awarded the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) a contract to explore opportunities for floating offshore wind and hydrogen supply chains in Scotland and France.
The number of planned or announced hydrogen projects across Europe is almost double that of current operational projects as demand for clean energy solutions heightens globally, according to research by global law firm DLA Piper and inspiratia.
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) is collaborating with Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) to decarbonise heat and power at Kirkwall Airport through green hydrogen technology.
The companies Vattenfall, Shell, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), and Hamburg's municipal heat supplier Hamburg Wärme are planning to build one of the world's largest electrolyzers in the Port of Hamburg. The new electrolyzer is to have a capacity of 100 megawatts and be built on the site of the former Moorburg coal-fired power plant. The four companies have now signed a Letter of Intent to this end.
A team of researchers from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has collaborated with French researchers from the Institute of Chemistry and Processes for Energy, Environment and Health (ICPEES), a joint research lab of CNRS and University of Strasbourg, to open the door to the synthesis of green hydrogen.
Green Hydrogen Systems (GHS), a leading provider of efficient electrolysers used in on-site production of hydrogen based on renewable energy, has been chosen as electrolysis technology partner in a major demonstration project run by the Danish renewable energy major Ørsted, and supported by the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP) under the Danish Energy Agency.
Shearwater Energy Ltd., a United Kingdom-based hybrid clean energy company, is developing a wind-SMR (Small Modular Reactor) and hydrogen production hybrid energy project in North Wales.
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) has launched a project with world-renowned distillery Highland Park and The Orkney Distillery to investigate green hydrogen heating as a clean fuel solution for decarbonization in the distilling sector.
Protium Green Solutions, the UK-based green hydrogen energy services company, has received more than £70,000 in funding to complete a feasibility study on incorporating innovative hydrogen combustion technology into Bruichladdich Distillery. Part of the BEIS Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP), the project is the next step in assessing the application of alternative fuels at island-based Bruichladdich.
ZeroAvia, the leading innovator in decarbonising commercial aviation, has secured £12.3m ($16.3m) in Government funding through the ATI Programme to deliver a breakthrough 19-seat hydrogen-electric powered aircraft that is market-ready by 2023.
