H2 blending in natural gas pipelines—technological challenges and opportunities

H2 is expected to play an important role in the energy transition, reinforcing the use of renewable energy resources and providing a low- to no-carbon footprint.

Power to gas, liquids, chemicals: An approach to industrial decarbonization with H2

Around the world, electricity is being generated from renewable resources like sun, wind, hydro, tidal and geothermal.

H2 on tap: Supporting decarbonization by pipelining H2 to the point of use

H2 is set to play an increasingly important role in the world’s energy mix. As an industry feedstock, a source of heat and power or a transportation fuel, H2 has the potential to gradually decarbonize large sectors of industry.

To prepare for a greener tomorrow, reexamine H2 energy today

Today, roughly 70 metric MMtpy of H2 is produced to help meet rising global energy demands.1 Those are the highest levels in history; however, H2 comprises only a small fraction of the current global energy infrastructure.

The complete cycle of low-carbon H2—Part 2

The cost of H2 production depends on the natural gas price for SMR, the electricity cost for electrolysis and biomass, and the electricity cost for the biomass route.

Modeling and simulation are key to developing FCEVs

A potential way to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and slow climate change is replacing internal combustion engine vehicles with electric vehicles.

Long-duration H2 storage in solution-mined salt caverns—Part 2

Environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) is an increasingly important aspect of corporate strategies and investment decisions.

H2 value chain analysis comparing different transport vectors—Part 2

Part 1 of this article, published in the Q3 issue, introduced the study concept and methodology for examining four transportation vectors to convert natural gas from Ras Laffan Industrial City in northeast Qatar into an H2 product at South Hook LNG terminal in Milford Haven, West Wales, UK.

The challenges of delivering a large-scale green H2 project—Part 1

With a global energy transition underway, interest in H2 as an essential vector in a future energy system is skyrocketing.

Projects Update

EUSTREAM, Gas TSO of Ukraine (GTSOU), NET4GAS and OGE have joined forces to develop an H2 highway through Central Europe.

Digital technology will accelerate innovation and profit for H2

Hydrogen has been in the spotlight for the past 2 years. In a survey of approximately 340 global companies, conducted by AspenTech in June 2021, 65% of respondents said they were planning to invest in hydrogen in the next 5 years as one solution to greenhouse gas emissions.

Regional Report: Renewables richness, energy transition push Middle East, Africa to explore H2

The Middle East is rich in both fossil and renewable energy, in the forms of petroleum, sunlight and wind.

Technology Spotlight

Aquaterra Energy has signed a partnership with Lhyfe and Borr Drilling to develop an innovative concept for offshore green H2 production in the North Sea.

Editorial Comment: Global H2 forecast for 2022 shows strength on continuing support

The low-carbon H2 sector is set to double in size this year, according to research by BloombergNEF, helped by unexpected growth from China in the first half of the year.

Realize energy and environmental benefits with circular H2 from waste gasification

Increasing concerns about environmental pollution related to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is promoting the energy transition toward more sustainable energy production systems. These systems are based on renewable energy exploitation and circular economy principles.

How H2 production technology will enable the transition to a green economy

The promise of safe and reliable hydrogen generation and distribution can be both exciting and daunting.
