A weekly podcast from H2Tech for the hydrogen community
H2Tech October News Brief
H2Tech Digital Editor Anthresia McWashington is sharing some of the top H2 news stories from the month of October on this week's episode of H2TechTalk. From the Port of Newcastle being considered to become a green H2 hub, to a Shell-led consortium pioneering a liquid H2 storage project, we’re catching up on the most recent H2 technology announcements across the globe.
Digital technology accelerating innovation in the H2 industry
In this episode of H2TechTalk we speak with Ron Beck, Industry Marketing Director, AspenTech about how digitalization technology based around modeling solutions is accelerating the energy transition and making hydrogen technologies and applications economically competitive. We also focus on how data analytics and AI are solving some complex challenges in technology choice, safety, scale-up, and supply chain currently confronting the hydrogen economy.
SPONSORED CONTENT: Challenges and benefits of optimizing compression systems in the H2 sector
H2Tech sat down with Thorsten Harder, Product Manager Hydrogen Mobility and Energy, Burckhardt Compression, to discuss the latest advancements in H2 compression technology, the role of compressor systems in H2 mobility and energy applications, challenges associated with high-pressure compression and optimizing this technology.
Conventional equipment and solutions adapting fast to meet the needs of the H2 industry
This episode of H2TechTalk features a discussion with Pavlos Papadopoulos, Market Development Manager, and Gary Wain, Product Marketing Manager, for Parker Hannifin, wherein we discuss filtration and instrumentation solutions that have increasing applications in the hydrogen industry. They also talk about Parker’s work with other companies to convert conventional IC engines for climate-neutral operation and with fuel cell manufacturers for fuel cell vehicles and maritime applications. They also comment on the market dynamics that drive green hydrogen initiative for Parker and in general.
Surging growth forecast for electrolyzer and low-carbon H2 market
On this week's episode of H2TechTalk, Martin Tengler, Lead Hydrogen Analyst at BloombergNEF, considers future growth prospects for the global low-carbon H2 market, which is anticipated to nearly double in size in 2021 alone. He also discusses the forecast rapid expansion in electrolyzer capacity over the following years, with much of this capacity coming from alkaline electrolyzer makers in China, and how this surge in Chinese manufacturing and surplus electrolyzer capacity will impact the H2 market. Finally, he touches on carbon pricing and how this can support H2 and other renewable energy development.
Establishing a robust H2 infrastructure in the U.S.
This week's episode of H2TechTalk is a recording of Dr. Sunita Satyapal, Director of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office at the U.S. Department of Energy, highlighting the DOE's strategy across the H2 value chain, including the H2@Scale initiative, and discussing the significance of the U.S. becoming a major player in the H2 sector at Gulf Energy Information's First Element Conference (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/first-element-conference-on-demand-tickets-170431148152?aff=ebdsoporgprofile). This presentation, along with many others covering the H2 industry, is currently available to view on demand.
