China uses solid hydrogen for power generation
Two power plants in south China’s Guangzhou and Kunming have begun using solid hydrogen to generate electricity.
It has effectively produced solid-state hydrogen energy using solar power generation for the first time, which is significant for boosting large-scale hydrogen production from renewable energy sources and expediting the development of a new kind of power system.
Seven cutting-edge solid hydrogen storage tanks, each holding 90 kilos of hydrogen, are part of the smart hydrogen station on Xiaohu Island in the Nansha area of Guangzhou.
The second hydrogen power plant is situated in Kunming City, Yunnan Province, southwest China, and it has 165 kilos of hydrogen energy stored previously. A comprehensive demonstration facility for hydrogen generation, storage, and use has been constructed by the Yunnan branch of Southern Power Grid. This base stores both liquid and solid-state hydrogen.
PowerTap Hydrogen Capital partners with Newport Realty Group for hydrogen fueling station
With Newport Realty Group, PowerTap Hydrogen Capital Inc. has agreed to a letter of intent to lease a space in Yermo, California for the potential establishment of a hydrogen fuelling station. The lease is contingent upon the conclusion of the lease terms and the execution of a binding agreement.
If the necessary procedures are done, it will eventually house a PowerTap hydrogen fuelling station. In addition to offering petrol refuelling and electric vehicle charging, the station will have on-site hydrogen production that will supply hydrogen for light-duty fuel cell electric vehicles.
Bangladesh needs National Hydrogen Strategy, says scientist
According to a scientist of Bangladeshi descent working in Australia, Bangladesh needs to develop a “National Hydrogen Strategy” to investigate the potential of clean hydrogen and strengthen its ties to nations that have made significant progress in this field.
At least 90 countries are working on hydrogen strategies, according to him, and many of them, like Australia, already have formal hydrogen strategies.
According to Dr. Nawshad, this plan is dependent on the nation’s energy needs as well as the export, import, and usage of energy. According to the scientist, Bangladeshi scientists, engineers, professionals, and journalists might be sent to Australia to learn about clean technology that could then be adopted there.
