China’s CGN Brazil Energy (CGNBE) has taken a significant step towards establishing a wind and solar power generation complex in the backlands of Bahia, Brazil. The company signed a memorandum of understanding with Quinto Energy to develop a massive 14 GW capacity facility that aims to produce green hydrogen on a large scale.

Chinese railway equipment manufacturer CRRC has made a historic move with the unveiling of the world’s first hydrogen-powered metro train. The train, which was unveiled at an event in Shanghai on Chinese Brands Day, has a speed of up to 160 km/h and can travel up to 600 km on a single charge.

thyssenkrupp nucera, one of the leading suppliers of water electrolysis technology in the gigawatt power range, announced the brand name for its 20MW green hydrogen electrolyser, Scalum. The announcement was made at the World Hydrogen Summit 2023 in Rotterdam. Scalum, derived from ‘scale,’ pays tribute to the module’s scalability, allowing for the interconnection of multiple modules to produce high plant capacities.

“The holy grail” of the energy future – hydrogen may soon have a very serious problem, which, if not solved quickly, will bring the whole “hydrogen revolution” to a halt for us. This is caused by the already absolute certainty that hydrogen in the Earth’s atmosphere reacts with tropospheric hydroxyl (OH) radicals. Therefore, its uncontrolled emission into the atmosphere disturbs the distribution and holds dangerously the decomposition of methane, ozone or water vapour, which can lead us, in the short term, to a possible climate cataclysm.
