Hydrogen Subsidies Skyrocket to $280 Billion With US in the Lead

Subsidies announced for low-carbon hydrogen  have quadrupled over the last two years to cross $280 billion, according to the latest update from BloombergNEF, the agency reported on 24 August.. The US stands far ahead of every other country, with the $137 billion expected to flow to eligible projects over the next 10 years making clean hydrogen cheaper for the whole world.

The US edge comes from the compelling offer of $3 per kilogram of low-carbon hydrogen produced – promised under the US Inflation Reduction Act. BNEF currently estimates the cost of clean hydrogen production at $2.3 to $4.8 per kilogram. The US support makes low-carbon hydrogen competitive with hydrogen from natural gas, enables economies of scale and drives the technology down the cost curve, changing the hydrogen landscape for everyone.



bp completes feasibility study to develop green hydrogen hub in a Kwinana

bp completing its concept development phase study into its energy hub H2Kwinana, the government of Western Australia announced. The study identified two potential base case scenarios, with the hub producing either 44 tonnes per day of green hydrogen or 143 tonnes per day.

The potential growth target of 429 tonnes per day was selected as the third and final case.

Comments attributed to Hydrogen Industry Minister Bill Johnston:

“With the completion of this feasibility study Western Australia is a step closer to the creation of a green hydrogen hub.

“Kwinana has been a central hub of fuel operations for the past 65 years, the potential development of a green hydrogen hub would progress the decarbonisation of the Kwinana Industrial Area. “These kinds of projects are possible thanks to the WA Labor Government’s $180 million investment into renewable hydrogen.”

German RVK has ordered 18 the first 18 hydrogen-powered buses

The first 18 hydrogen-powered buses of the Solaris Urbino 18 have been ordered by Regionalverkehr Köln GmbH, the RVK stated on 23 August. The contract has been awarded for the delivery of 18 hydrogen-powered  buses to the company Solaris Bus & Coach. Delivery is scheduled for the second half of 2024. The vehicles are used on RVK lines in the greater Cologne/Bonn area.

The Urbino 18 hydrogen buses intended for the RVK have an electric central motor and a modular drive. The absence of a traditional engine compartment allows for a reconfigured seating arrangement on the bus, maximizing passenger capacity. Equipped with a state-of-the-art 100 kW fuel cell set, these buses use more than 50 kilograms of hydrogen stored in eight cylinders on the vehicle roof. This ensures a guaranteed range of 350 kilometers regardless of the weather and topographical conditions.The RVK fleet currently comprises a total of 72 hydrogen buses.

German Brockhaus Hydrogen plans to produce green hydrogen for Brockhaus Stahl

The company Brockhaus Hydrogen from Plettenberg demonstrated its plans for the production of green hydrogen to a delegation led by South Westphalia Arnsberg district president Heinrich Böckelühr, the H2 News reported.Brockhaus Hydrogen would like to produce hydrogen itself and use it both at Brockhaus Stahl and to operate a hydrogen filling station. 

Instead of waiting for political decisions, they want to create a showcase project now.The “Brockhaus BlueCube” electrolyser developed in Plettenberg and Dortmund is designed to have an output of 3 MW and generates hydrogen using alkaline electrolysis.

Such a module, which fits in one and a half sea containers, currently costs around €2.2 million. With the appropriate approval, the steel coils at Brockhaus Stahl can be treated with the green hydrogen produced in the future. And a hydrogen filling station is also conceivable at the conveniently located location on Herscheider Strasse. In the best-case scenario, this would supply a fleet of hydrogen-powered trucks.


German EWE to supply green hydrogen to steel manufacturer Georgsmarien-hütte

India wants to become a global hub to produce green hydrogen and is aiming for annual production of 5 million metric tons of the fuel by 2030, which would cut about 50 million metric tons of carbon emissions and save more than $12 billion on fossil fuel imports.


CSIRO released a new report “Hydrogen vehicle refuelling infrastructure”

Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO and GHD Advisory  released a new report to call for Australia to focus on hydrogen-powered transport – alongside electric vehicles – or risk being left behind our international counterparts, the CSIRO stated.

“The report compared the different hydrogen storage and dispensing options available, and evaluated refuelling infrastructure options based on fuel demand and distance from the hydrogen source.

It found that while all Australian hydrogen refuelling stations currently have onsite hydrogen production, we will need to move to centralised offsite production and distribution of hydrogen in order to refuel vehicles at scale”.
