The technical and socio-economic possibilities of massive H2 storage
The technical and socio-economic possibilities of massive hydrogen (H2) storage in porous media were explored at the hystories conference in Paris, France. The HYSTORIES (HYdrogen STORage In European Subsurface) project is funded by the European Union and led by Geostock. The conference displayed the results of 2 1/2 yr of research within the project.
The challenges with transitioning to H2 in power facilities
At World Hydrogen North America 2023 in Houston, Texas, Eliecer Viamontes, President and CEO of Entergy Texas, delivered a presentation titled "Debating the use case for hydrogen to decarbonize the power sector." The presentation focused on the challenges of integrating H2 into power facilities.
Hydrexia Energy Technology and Green Solutions Group partner to grow the H2 market in Vietnam
Hydrexia entered a MoU with the Green Solutions Group to provide a framework for a comprehensive business partnership between the two companies geared toward promoting H2 technology user applications in the growing H2 market in Vietnam.
LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool passes trials for safe transportation and storage of H2
LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool has successfully passed trials to become the first UK producer of pipelines for safe transportation and storage of H2, a major step in LIBERTY’s aim to support the UK’s development of low-carbon H2 technologies.
Hy Stor Energy submits application to the U.S. DOE for funding to develop large-scale clean H2 production, storage
Hy Stor Energy has applied for U.S. DOE funding support for the MCHH through the U.S. DOE’s Regional Clean H2 Hub initiative. MCHH distinctively benefits from existing private investment in Hy Stor Energy that predates recent federal legislation providing for energy infrastructure financial support through loans, grants and tax incentives.
Koole Terminals and Hyphen Hydrogen Energy partner on green ammonia
Hyphen Hydrogen Energy has signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) with Koole Terminals. The LoI covers the proposed important of green ammonia into northwestern Europe by Hyphen to supply its customers through the import terminal being developed by Koole Terminals, located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Selecting materials for H2 service
H2 must be stored at more elevated pressures with respect to hydrocarbon gas fuels to achieve similar energy density. This creates higher requirements on pressure vessels and containment structures, both in terms of building materials’ strength and assembly weight. Moreover, H2 is known to degrade materials’ properties; in particular, in the case of metals, molecular H2 can dissociate at the metal surface, resulting in atomic H2 to diffuse into the bulk. This can eventually degrade the material’s properties, especially the ductility and fracture resistance.
