Denso shows energy management system using highly efficient solid oxide fuel cell at Nishio facility
To reduce CO2 emissions from the facility, Denso started a pilot study to test a new energy management system at its Nishio Plant in Japan. A storage battery for transferring electricity to the plant and a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) created by Denso make up the facility energy management system employed in the study. Along with solar panels, it also consists of a car-to-Grid (V2G) system, which permits the use of an electric car as a storage battery to link to and jointly use the power grid of electric utility companies.
Within Nishio Plant’s Pocket Park, a new installation of this system has been made. An SOFC is a device that uses hydrogen as fuel to produce energy. It can produce electricity steadily without being affected by the weather, unlike solar power generation. Aiming for the highest level power generation efficiency in the world of 65, the SOFC created by DENSO includes thermal management technology and fuel recycling technologies that have been established through automotive components.
Hydrogen gas turbine test and development center in Boryeong
In order to achieve carbon neutrality, Chungcheongnam-do has taken on the challenge of luring a “Hydrogen Gas Turbine Test Research Center” to Boryeong.
Following the business agreement to attract a “carbon capture type hydrogen production base” in Dangjin on the 14th, Chungcheongnam-do is now preemptively reacting to the government’s hydrogen-related public offering project for the second time.
Governor Kim Tae-heum, Boryeong Mayor Kim Dong-il, Korea Institute of Machinery & Materials President Park Sang-jin, Korea Midland Power President Kim Ho-bin, Doosan Energity President Jeong Yeon-in, and SK E&S Vice President Kyung-moon Jeon were present as Chungcheongnam-do signed a business agreement today (19th).
Portugal hosts hydrogen event
Portugal will hear next week about how the GenComm EU hydrogen project, which is being managed by Belfast Met, has inspired new ideas for using hydrogen in international trade and industry.
Paul McCormack, the GenComm Programme Manager, will present twice at the event, which takes place from June 21 to June 23. The three-day conference will address a variety of topics, including the production and storage of hydrogen, its problems and advancements, and its usage in fuel cells and other commercial uses. In order to promote high energy efficiency, the HYLANTIC-Atlantic Network for Renewable Generation and Supply of Hydrogen organized this second iteration of the H2FC Summer School. Researchers, engineers, policymakers, and senior grads can all learn from the many workshops and talks at this hybrid event.
