South Africa`s fuel cell plan risks failure without support
An ambitious strategy to create fuel cell products for export will need incentives and cross-government backing to bear fruit, says Radhika Perrot. South Africa's Department of Science & Technology (DST) has been laboriously pushing for the development of hydrogen fuel-cell technology through an ambitious research and development (R&D) strategy since 2005. Fuel cells can convert the ...
China must be encouraged to develop hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology using domestic resources
This paper describes the current situation in China and the reasons for the rapidly increasing consumption of oil and the consequent search for new sources. Some suggestions are made for the rapid development and commercialisation of hydrogen energy systems in China using domestic resources. China could satisfy the energy demand with her domestic resources of renewable energies and depending on ...
Gas Analysers for Fuel Cell Research
Electrochemical fuel cells are envisaged as a potential successor technology to combustion engines in the automotive sector. Although studies have considered numerous gaseous elements as the fuel source for electrochemical stacks, hydrogen (H2) remains the primary element of interest in automotive engineering. Gas analysers have proven instrumental in demonstrating the advantages and drawbacks of ...
Kalisaya renewable hydrogen project - Case study
Which shall be the first commercial project of renewable hydrogen production in Chile, comes up as a solution for the conditions of pollution of the country, where waste from human activity and industrial or biological processes have raised the levels of pollution to become harmful for people and environment. Besides, it arises due to the development of hydrogen technology and fuel cells in ...
Experimental study on the performance of multi cylinder diesel engine fuelled by hydrogen/diesel blend
Nowadays, the depletion of conventional fuel and greenhouse issues are the major crisis facing the life of human beings. Hydrogen is expected as one of the most promising renewable energy source to substitute the conventional fuel and meet the stringent emission norms. In this experimental investigation, the performance analysis was carried out on an indirect injection (IDI) diesel engine using ...
Vitale renewable hydrogen project - Case study
The first commercial project of renewable hydrogen production in Spain, was born as a solution for the conditions of pollution in the country, where waste from human activity and industrial or biological processes have raised the levels of pollution to become harmful for people and environment. Besides, it arose due to the development of hydrogen technology and fuel cells in general, and its ...
Hydrogen as transport fuel in Iceland. The political, technological and commercial story of ECTOS
Through the political, the technological and the commercial story of the early phases of the ECTOS project and its background, the implementation of hydrogen as transport fuel in Iceland is analysed. The presence of large amounts of geothermal energy is the resource basis for the governmental plans for converting Iceland into a hydrogen economy. Strong political commitment has established the ...
Is nuclear power more competitive producing electricity or hydrogen?
Steam methane reforming is the world's dominant hydrogen production technology, using natural gas as both feedstock and fuel, but producing more than 9 kg of CO2 for each kilogram of H2. Natural gas prices between $6 and $8/GJ yield an average hydrogen production cost between $12 and $15/GJ, excluding the cost of CO2. High-temperature gas reactors, e.g. the modular helium reactor, can be ...
Scenarios for the role of hydrogen in a future energy system based on renewable energy
An all-renewable energy system for a group of North European countries is investigated by temporal simulation of the demand-supply matching for various system configurations. The role of hydrogen technologies for energy storage and fuel cell applications is studied and applied to both stationary and transportation sectors. It is shown that there is scope for considerable amounts of energy trade ...
The technoeconomic assessment of the hydrogen fuel chain
Options for hydrogen fuel chain are compared with the existing petroleum-based fuel chain for transportation. The criteria used are the life cycle cost (Rs/km), Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions (g/km) and Nonrenewable Energy (NRE) consumption (MJ/km). Four hydrogen production methods, one hydrogen transport method, three hydrogen storage methods and two on-board energy conversion methods are ...
Charting economic climate
The economic climate affects our day-to-day lives. Work activities are intricately interconnected with social well-being which in turn effects family harmony and trickles on down to impact personal wherewithal. Still, 'climate' is what it is. There is nothing any of us alone can do about it. At the same time, however, how we think about it tends to shift the reality we experience day to day. ...
Hydrogen as Future Fuel for Gas Engines
Gas engines are providing a wide range of fuel flexibility from burning natural gas and a variety of non- natural gaseous fuels from low British Thermal Unit (BTU) gases as well as gases containing a high hydrogen content. Hydrogen containing gases can be found as by-product from steel (furnace gas) or chemical process, or alternatively hydrogen is produced and blended to natural gas. In the ...
