PCT Cartuja joins Andalusian Green Hydrogen Alliance
The Andalusian Green Hydrogen Alliance is a project of the Junta de Andaluca that aims to create partnerships between public and private entities in order to take advantage of the opportunities provided by this developing industry and quicken its implementation. The Cartuja Science and Technology Park (PCT Cartuja), an organisation dependent on the Ministry of University, Research and Innovation, has joined the alliance.
The PCT Cartuja can contribute to strengthening this Alliance because, as it states in its declaration of adhesion, “the PCT Cartuja shares the vision of the opportunity for the development of the hydrogen economy in Andalusia.” In particular, it can do this because it serves as an avant-garde urban laboratory where technologies for the promotion of renewable energies can be researched and tested.
Green Hydrogen Systems transports first X-Series prototype to GreenLab
Green Hydrogen Systems transported the first X-Series prototype electrolyser to GreenLab in Skive, Denmark, for installation and testing.
Green Hydrogen Technologies aims to start selling the commercial X-Series 6MW pressurised alkaline electrolyser product in Q4 2023 after the on-site prototype installation and successful testing in Q2 and Q3.
The first X-Series prototype is sent from Kolding, Denmark, to GreenLab for installation, testing, and product validation after extensive production design, product development, and final assembly.
Green Hydrogen Technologies’ A90 A-Series core stack technology powers the 6MW pressurised alkaline electrolyser X-Series prototype. The GreenHyScale project will test the X-Series prototype at GreenLab.
Horizon 2020 funds the GreenHyScale project, which aims to scale up to 100MW electrolyser capacity.
Belchite to host hydrogen plant
The development of the new renewable hydrogen plant by the Spanish company DH2 Energy in Belchite will result in the creation of up to 40 direct and indirect jobs in the region. This project is still in the planning stages and is dependent on receiving the necessary approvals.
According to Carmelo Pérez, mayor of Belchite, the discussions between the corporation and the locals started a few months ago and successfully concluded with the donation of the property needed to complete the project.
$6.5M green hydrogen program to bring jobs to Hampton Roads
A $6.5 million green hydrogen fuel program is being developed by the Hampton Roads Alliance in collaboration with the cities of Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach to help launch a regional business. Plans for the project include three to five transitional projects, a demonstration and educational site, and a program for workforce development.
The program will be based in Newport News’ Tech Center Research Park, close to Jefferson Lab, and is expected to generate 230 high-paying jobs. According to supporters, the manufacturing of hydrogen has the potential to increase employment opportunities and draw larger businesses to Hampton Roads that require the clean energy output.
SEA reveals green hydrogen project evaluation standards in Chile
A set of standards for evaluating green hydrogen projects has been introduced by SEA in Chile.
The nation is working on a number of initiatives that are aimed at both the domestic and international markets.
To ensure that the evaluation is restricted to the parameters of the project in question, a key component of the framework requires developers to describe where the project fits into their respective value chains.
The first half of the decade will likely see gigawatt-scale export plants, which will be followed by projects aimed at local offtakers and utilizing pre-existing infrastructure and expertise.
The environmental assessment system has not yet received any utility-scale green hydrogen projects.
