Limoges to add hydrogen busses from 2025

A local hydrogen ecosystem will be developed in the city of Limoges, making it possible to electrolyze green hydrogen. Among other things, this manufacture will provide twelve buses that will start operating in 2025.

13 hydrogen-powered buses will be put into operation by Limoges Métropole between 2025 and 2028. The creation of this ecosystem is a response to ADEME’s (Agency for the Environment and Energy Management) call for projects, which offers funding of up to 5.9 million euros.

In the Grande Espace neighborhood, north of Limoges, Limoges Métropole plans to build an electrolyser, a kind of service station that will produce green hydrogen by electrolyzing water.


West Pomeranian Hydrogen Valley creation starts

In Szczecin, the letter of intent for the West Pomeranian Hydrogen Valley was signed. The Szczecin and Winoujcie Seaports Authority is one of the 16 signatories to the document.

The parties to the signed letter expressed their intention to work together and take steps to create a hydrogen economy, with a focus on the Zachodniopomorskie Voivodeship, which is well-suited to producing and using zero- and low-emission hydrogen due to its location, infrastructure, and resources.

The West Pomeranian Hydrogen Valley can be created thanks to the letter’s numerous signatories, many of whom are involved in business, technology, and research and development.

The use and importance of hydrogen in the economy are currently growing. This is because it has the potential to decarbonize transportation and industry while also creating a new energy system and economy based on energy sources with low emissions.


Azerbaijan could benefit from green hydrogen production

The production of ‘green hydrogen’ benefits Azerbaijan, according to Vilayat Valiyev, Rector of Azerbaijan Technical University.

According to him, ‘green hydrogen’ industrial projects are more likely to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2050.

According to Valiyev, the construction of a solar power plant in Garadagh, which is being carried out with the assistance of the UAE business Masdar, as well as the development of a wind power plant in Karabakh, will help to achieve this goal.


Germany and France reconciled over hydrogen regulation

As part of broader efforts to ease simmering tensions between the two biggest members of the EU, Germany and France, their disagreements over hydrogen regulation appear to have been left aside.

The European Commission plans to produce 10 million tonnes of domestic renewable hydrogen and import 10 million tonnes of hydrogen to replace fossil gas by 2030, which will help decarbonize industries like steelmaking and chemicals.

France and Germany, meanwhile, are at odds over EU regulations that will control future hydrogen production in Europe that is renewable and low-carbon.

France has pushed that the EU’s revised Renewable Energy Directive recognize hydrogen produced from nuclear electricity as green. Germany has vehemently disagreed, arguing that nuclear has no place in the directive.

Their disagreements now seem to be resolved. A “political proclamation” expressing Franco-German unity on a number of energy-related problems, including hydrogen regulation, was released by the two nations on Friday.


SEC approves green hydrogen pilot plant for mining camp

The National Piloting Center (CNP) began building the integrated H2V recovery plant at Minera San Pedro with the help of a resolution from the Superintendence of Electricity and Fuels (SEC) released this month. The project will be operational in March 2023.

Since the facilities comprise a green electricity generation system, with photovoltaic panels, and the production, storage, conditioning, transportation, and consumption of this energy vector, the development covers the complete value chain of using hydrogen as a fuel in mining.

The facility will serve as the perfect testing ground for new technology from technology vendors, including fuel blending, storage and transportation systems, and human capital development for the operation and maintenance of H2 technologies.
