A piece from PV Magazine has detailed the latest innovations concerning hydrogen power. Many prominent energy corporations are working to establish new technology that can assist in expanding the capabilities of hydrogen power, and hopefully create more environmentally friendly and efficient power sources.

Some of the Current Initiatives

One company out of Massachusetts, known as “Nuvera Fuel Cells” is partnering with Norwegian company, Hytech, to create fuel centers that can potentially power vehicles. The company is working both in the US and Europe to make this a possibility. They have developed two types of engines that can be powered by hydrogen.

Similarly, the European flight company, Airbus, is working with a Japanese flight company, Kawaski Heavy Industries to work on different uses of hydrogen, such as using it to power the flight transportations, but also ways to transport hydrogen itself. Not much else is known about this partnership, but the public will likely hear more as parts of the initiative become more concrete.

A company that traditionally focuses on wind power, Storgrundet Offshore is working with a company that focuses on hydrogen, Lhyfe, to create a hydrogen production center. This initiative has received millions of dollars in fundraising.

In Australia, a company known as Aqua Aerem, is working on creating hydrogen for use, both domestically and internationally. Aqua Aerem is focusing on providing hydrogen for electricity, heat and general use.

A Canadian company known as First Hydrogen is creating refueling stations for vehicles in the UK and is looking to expand further.

A Dutch company, known as Gasunie, is working on capabilities to transport hydrogen, including through a pipeline. They hope that the pipeline can be fully functional by 2025.

What is Next?

These initiatives all sound promising, but so far the concrete results from them are limited. The best the energy community can do is support the initiatives that have the strongest ability to work long term.
