European policy makers are increasingly acknowledging the important role that hydrogen will play in existing gas networks, to meet targets for decarbonisation with minimum consumer disruption. The existing gas infrastructure is a vital asset for energy delivery and security of supply, capable of long-term and high capacity storage of energy. Blending hydrogen with natural gas will take advantage of this asset. To ensure the safety and determine the performance of a system with an increasing... Read more
ShipFC consortium project gets €10m fund injection to deliver world’s first high-power fuel-cell to be powered by green ammonia.
A maritime innovation project looking to install the world’s first ammonia-powered fuel cell on a vessel has been awarded €10m funding from the European Union.
The ShipFC project is being run by a consortium of 14 European companies and institutions, co-ordinated by the Norwegian cluster organisation NCE Maritime CleanTech, and has been awarded backing from the... Read more
Ulster University researchers from the Hydrogen Safety Engineering and Research Centre (HySAFER) are coordinating HyResponder, a European project which will develop and implement a sustainable “train the trainer” programme in hydrogen safety for first responders throughout Europe.
The €1m European project, Funded by Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU) under Horizon 2020, will support the commercialisation of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies by training responders, who are... Read more
A consortium comprising Nouryon, Gasunie and four other partners will receive an €11-million European grant towards their proposed green hydrogen project in Delfzijl, the Netherlands. The project is a front-runner among several hydrogen initiatives aimed at cutting carbon emissions and will be a significant milestone in the transition to a more sustainable, circular economy, the companies say.
The funding is granted by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU), a partnership of... Read more
