816 MW offshore Empire Wind project files with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to delay its start date 18 months to the end of 2026; solar supply chain issues starting to hurt, and drive increases in panel prices; Swell Energy inks deal with Redwood Coast Energy Authority to create a community grid program, with up to 45 MWh of onsite solar powered storage from C/I customers in California's Humboldt County; Thomas Built electric school bus w/ Proterra power battery system in Beverly, MA sends power to the grid during 30 separate events this year totaling 3 MWh; Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District gets 2 new 60-foot long hydrogen buses fueled by H2 from electrolyzer in turn will be powered by 5,500 local solar panels in Illinois; Volvo Group rolls out world's first vehicle made from fossil free steel - from steelmaker SSAB using green hydrogen from HYBRIT project in Northern Sweden; Air Products announces plan to build $4.5 billion blue hydrogen facility in Louisiana.
1) 816 MW offshore NY Empire Wind project files with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to delay its start date by about 18 months to late 2026, citing permitting process, and the complexity of offshore construction.
2) solar industry facing headwinds in form of supply chain challenges and higher commodity prices, especially polysilicon, with costs of frequently deployed panel types jumping from 21¢/watt to 24¢/watt in first 9 months of 2021.
3) Swell Energy commits to provide up to 45 MWh of solar-powered storage to Redwood Coast Energy in California's Humboldt County.
4) V2G increasingly viable, as Thomas Built e-bus w/Proterra power 226 kWh battery system sends 3 MWh of power to the grid during 30 separate events this year.
5) Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District deploys 2 new 60-foot long hydrogen buses w/H2 from electrolyzer powered by 5,500 local solar panels.
6) Volvo Group unveils world's first vehicle made from fossil free steel - a load carrier used in mining and quarrying. Steel is from SSAB's hydrogen- based HYBRIT tech, which will be producing millions of tons of carbon-free steel by 2026.
7) Air Products outlines plan to build $4.5 billion blue hydrogen facility, capturing the carbon and storing it in underground reservoirs in Louisiana.
