Wir informieren und diskutieren über die Fortschritte im Bereich der Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzellen-Technik.

Sven Geitmann H2-international - Newsletter June 2018
Considering we are confronted with new facts almost every day, it should come as no surprise that the controversy surrounding nitrogen oxides and fine dust, blue badges and diesel bans in German cities shows no sign of letting up. Likewise, automakers are a recurrent subject on the evening news, whether they want to or not. …
Fuel cell power plants are the top class of stationary applications. They are the most difficult systems to design and the market for them is the toughest to survive. Companies engaging in this business have often come crashing down or were saved in spectacular fashion by mere chance. But there are some which have mastered …
As part of an online survey, H2-international has asked 12 suppliers of fuel cell power plants to provide information about their product portfolio and the market. Unfortunately, only four of them filled out the questionnaire, describing four products in total. Datasheets available elsewhere were used to add more systems to the table below. …
The work of Joi Scientific Inc. continues to be shrouded in secrecy. Who are these Americans who have been present on the scene for months, but haven’t really explained what they’re doing? What does the company, which seems to have already collected millions in investor money, want to offer? A finished product or services only? …
As part of a project funded by the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Anleg and ZBT are constructing a mobile energy station to ensure that even small-scale applications in difficult terrain have a reliable source of power, hydrogen and light. The system base is a box truck, designed for off-road duty, whose cargo area …
So far, we’ve closely followed the developments unfolding at Berlin-based fuel cell supplier Heliocentris and the takeover of its locations in Germany (see H2-international, May 2017 and January 2018). We also reported about the comeback of FutureE and the spin-off of Home Power Solutions. And recently, we sat down with Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, owner of Enapter, …
Hydrogen is of central importance to a German market that is becoming increasingly interwoven. What makes the gas the ideal chemical energy carrier is that it can provide not only the heat and power sector with a long-term storage option, but also vehicles with electricity and the chemical industry with a raw material. The authors …
Until 2030, Switzerland’s heat generation from renewable gas is to increase from today’s roughly 1 percent to 30 percent. To achieve greater efficiency in the use of raw gas sources, Zurich-based energy supplier Energie 360° and the PSI – Paul Scherrer Institute have been working on developing a new power-to-gas technology. …
Sprakebüll is a small German village, west of Flensburg, where wet meadows extend as far as the eye can see. Most of the village’s population of 240 has worked in agriculture for decades. About 20 years ago, 24 of them pooled their resources to fund a community wind farm. The investment was seen as a …
Electric motors are the key to sustainable transportation. One of the features that all-electric and fuel cell vehicles have in common is the absence of local emissions. Their lack of harmful pollutants can improve people’s quality of life, especially in highly populated conurbations. What is needed now is a supply chain …
Fuel cells are highly productive systems for converting energy from hydrogen into electricity. Their conversion efficiency of 50 percent to 60 percent has made them a subject of intense interest among stakeholders in the EU’s current and past research framework programs. However, if there is to be a concrete implementation strategy to introduce zero-emission power …
Hydrogen certainly has the potential to become a mainstay across all kinds of energy markets. It can be produced entirely from renewable energy, requiring not even a tiny amount of carbon-based fuel. It is currently being brought to market to power cars, buses, trucks and trains through fuel cells driving their engines. …
Each day, the sun sends vast quantities of energy to the earth. During millions of years, our planet has adapted to this steady stream of power, developing clever ways to make efficient use of the solar resources it receives. Scientists have been trying to do the same in a rather minuscule amount of time. Over …

Stefan Augustin Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain Pilot Project in Australia
12. April 2018: Hydrogen is a fuel of the future and has the potential to provide a secure and clean source of energy as countries tackle the challenge of meeting national and international emissions reduction targets.
As a first step in developing a viable hydrogen industry in Australia, the Australian and Victorian Governments are supporting a world-first project to produce hydrogen in Victoria and export it to Japan.
The Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain Pilot Project has been launched in April 2018 and once constructed (2018–20) will run for one year (2020–21). It will develop and trial a seven-stage hydrogen supply chain.

Plug Power expects strong second quarter
Technological breakthroughs and rosy prospects for growth may have raised expectations of the fuel cell companies described below, but their grossly undervalued stocks haven’t followed suit. Zooming out for a moment, there should be a greater focus on sustainability if the goal is to up the stock price. Instead, too much emphasis is placed on …

Hydrogenics versus ITM Power
Canadian producer Hydrogenics (Nasdqaq: HYGS) and British manufacturer ITM Power (London: ITM) aren’t entirely comparable, but they use similar technologies. There are some commonalities in the form of power-to-gas projects, hydrogen stations and powerful electrolyzers to generate the gas. Their market caps aren’t as far apart as I would expect based on the number and …
