DOE and TARDEC to collaborate on hydrogen and fuel cells for military use
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/10/20181009-tardec.html

. . . Army TARDEC is the United States Armed Forces’ research and development facility for advanced technology in ground systems. Research is underway at Army TARDEC to develop fuel-cell-powered vehicles for tactical uses, among other activities.

The Energy Department’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO), within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, focuses on advancing an innovative portfolio of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies through early-stage applied research and development (R&D) of technologies. This R&D includes hydrogen production from diverse domestic resources including renewable, fossil, and nuclear resources, infrastructure development including hydrogen delivery and storage, and fuel cells for transportation, stationary, and mobile applications.

Report: Hyundai to ship 5,000 hydrogen fuel cell cars to France by 2025
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/10/20181015-hyundai.html

. . . The carmaker plans to sign initial agreements with local companies to promote hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV), the company said in a statement.

On Tuesday, Hyundai will sign a memorandum of understanding with Air Liquide and Engie for the spread of the emission-free car and charging stations in France. Under the deal, the two French companies will establish fueling stations for FCEVs across France by the target year. The fueling infrastructure is for both passenger and commercial vehicles that use hydrogen. . . .

Hydrogenics to supply large-scale PEM electrolyzer for H2 fueling station in Europe; more than 400 kg per day
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/10/20181016-hydrogenics.html

. . . The customer, Maximator GmbH, is a compressor manufacturer which is building a one megawatt facility in Wuppertal to cover the daily needs of more than 10 new fuel cell buses operated by WSW—the local public transit company.

WSW prefers hydrogen-fueled buses over battery ones due to their higher reliability in providing power throughout the day, even on the steep terrain of Wuppertal.

Surplus energy generated by a local waste incinerator will be used to power the electrolyzer and generate hydrogen. The Hydrogenics system will be delivered during 2019. . . .



Toshiba, Philippines government sign MoU on the promotion of autonomous hydrogen energy supply systems
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/10/20181016-toshiba.html

Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS) concluded a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with National Electrification Administration (NEA), an government organization of the Philippines, on the implementation of H2One, a hydrogen-based autonomous energy supply system with renewable energy and the use of hydrogen as a fuel for power generation in the Philippines. . . .

In the Philippines, half of the current energy supply is from coal and oil-fired thermal power. The country is also reliant on imports of these fuels, and increasingly sees renewable energy as a chance to improve the self-sufficiency of its energy supply. The country seeks solutions for remote islands with low electrification rates, and ways to reduce risk from typhoons and other natural disasters.

H2One is an integrated system that uses a renewable energy source to electrolyze water to produce hydrogen. . . .

One of the application of H2One is the “Off-grid solution” distributed energy system that allows the supply of clean and stable energy, without influence from the weather, to islands currently reliant on diesel and other generating systems such as thermal power.

Toshiba ESS has been conducting a survey project to develop applications for the H2One in remote islands in the Philippines and Indonesia. Toshiba ESS has already reached a partnership agreement with Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi, an Indonesian government organization, for the spread of H2One throughout Indonesia.
