1) Constellation's to utilize 1 MW of capacity from 1900 MW Nine Mile Point nuclear plant in NY to make 500 kg/day of hydrogen, suggests potential future hydrogen-making expansion to rest of fleet. A 2nd project on site will use 10 MW fuel cell as peaker.
2) Southern California Gas announces pilot H2 residential micro-grid, w/2000 sq ft home converting energy from solar via electrolyzer into H2, which is either stored for conversion back to electricity through onsite fuel cell or blended w/methane for use in appliances.
3) Ballard Power wins orders for fuel cells to drive hydrogen-based trains in Germany and in San Bernardino, California. Both to be commissioned by 2024.
4) New York Power Authority successfully generates electricity in retrofitted GE turbine, using blend of green H2 and methane, w/H2 blends as high as 44%. At 35% H2 mix, CO2 emissions were cut by 14%.
5) Germany steel giant ThyssenKrupp greenlights $2 billion plan to replace four blast furnaces w/hydrogen-based technology at its largest steel plant in Germany, to be operational by 2026. Technology enables use of commonly available blast furnace-grade iron ore, rather than the scarce direct reduction grade used in recent low-carbon steel projects. New approach could greatly expand use of varying qualities of ore in carbon-free steel production.
6) Hertz and BP roll out plan for U.S network of thousands of EV charging stations for both rental vehicles and general public. BP to coordinate charging infrastructure near Hertz locations and deploy software to optimize charging relative to electricity costs.
7) Pentagon releases RFP relating to design, build and operation of a micro nuclear reactor at Alaska's Eielson military base within five years, w/goal of demonstrating feasibility of a small scale nuclear power plant as backup for military bases. RFP specifies a plant up to 5 MW, operating for up to 10 years until the fuel is spent.
