Hydrogen and electric vehicle charging stations added at Paju
In Paju, Gyeonggi Province, a sizable hydrogen and electric vehicle charging station will be constructed.
Located near 829-8 Bongseo-ri, Paju-eup, the Paju-type hydrogen/electric vehicle charging station will be transformed into a “future car mega station” that includes a sizable zero-emission vehicle charging facility and different energy complex amenities.
More than 10 billion won was spent on the project overall, including 4.6 billion won from the government, 1 billion won from Paju City, 3.8 billion won from hydrogen supply infrastructure specialist Kohaigen, and 800 million won from electric vehicle charging service specialist Daeyoung Chaevi.
The capacity of the hydrogen refueling station is 300kg/h, which is 12 times more than the 25kg/h of current hydrogen refueling stations for vehicles. Three chargers are in use at this large-capacity charging station, which can recharge 15 hydrogen buses in an hour.
HRS and Engie to develop hydrogen refuelling stations
Engie Solutions, the division of the CAC 40 firm devoted to zero carbon energy efficiency solutions, and Hydrogen Refueling Solutions (HRS) have engaged into a commercial and technological cooperation.
The goal of the two businesses is to develop a line of hydrogen refuelling stations tailored to Engie Solutions’ requirements. With the goal of standardizing solutions, a modular architecture will first be taken into consideration. After that, the focus will shift upmarket as capacity increases from several hundred kilograms per day to one ton per day and ultimately two tonnes per day.
The two parties should be able to create “hydrogen mobility ecosystems” centred on heavy mobility (trucks, buses, community vehicles like garbage trucks), or even captive fleets, thanks to this offer (company vehicles).
East Yorkshire’s Aldbrough gas site to create and store hydrogen in 2025
Aldbrough’s caves were made from a subterranean layer of rock salt more than ten years ago. They are employed to store gas during periods of low demand and resell it during periods of high demand.
The project by SSE Thermal, which could cost over £100 million, will include power generating, hydrogen manufacturing, and storage. A 35MW electrolyser powered by an existing substation will be used to create hydrogen on-site from water, which will then be stored in the cathedral-sized cavern.
Energy generated by a turbine that runs entirely on hydrogen can be fed back into the power system. The modest project will generate 20 gigawatt hours of electricity, which is enough to operate 40 hydrogen buses for a whole year.
