Can Hydrogen Fuels Be Produced With Solar Energy? New Tech Advances Include an ‘Artificial Leaf’

Can Hydrogen Fuels Be Produced With Solar Energy? New Tech Advances Include an ‘Artificial Leaf’

Two studies published this week explore innovative ways to produce hydrogen fuels through solar energy, one via a catalyst and another via a solar-powered artificial leaf device. Both methods mimic photosynthesis to produce hydrogen in more efficient and sustainable ways. Researchers at the University of Michigan developed a catalyst to split water into oxygen and […]

    UK Could Require All New Boilers to Be ‘Hydrogen Ready’ by 2026

    UK Could Require All New Boilers to Be ‘Hydrogen Ready’ by 2026

    The UK could ban new natural-gas exclusive boilers beginning in 2026.  According to a consultation announced Tuesday, the government is considering requiring all new boilers installed from 2026 to be hydrogen-ready, meaning that they could run on either gas or hydrogen. “Mandating hydrogen-ready boilers is an important step towards decarbonising homes,” Chief Executive of Energy […]

    Airbus CEO Says Zero-Carbon Flights Could be Delayed by Lack of Hydrogen Supply

    Airbus CEO Says Zero-Carbon Flights Could be Delayed by Lack of Hydrogen Supply

    The CEO of the world’s biggest plane manufacturer warned that low-carbon flights could be delayed.  Airbus had previously promised to build the world’s first zero-emission airplane by 2035, but its chief executive Guillaume Faury said this new aircraft would have difficulty getting off the ground if hydrogen fuel was not developed quickly enough. “Availability or […]

    Rolls-Royce Tests Hydrogen as Fuel in Gas Turbine Jet Engine

    Rolls-Royce Tests Hydrogen as Fuel in Gas Turbine Jet Engine

    On a military site in England, a Rolls-Royce AE-2100A gas turbine jet engine — used in regional aircraft all over the world — is undergoing flight tests using hydrogen fuel for the first time, reported BBC News. The tests are being conducted in partnership with airline easyJet. In the short term, the purpose of the […]

    France, Portugal and Spain Agree on ‘Green Energy Corridor’ for Hydrogen Transport

    France, Portugal and Spain Agree on ‘Green Energy Corridor’ for Hydrogen Transport

    Meeting prior to a European Union summit in Brussels, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, French President Emmanuel Macron and Portuguese Prime Minister António Costa agreed upon a “green energy corridor” — a new pipeline between Barcelona and Marseille underneath the Mediterranean Sea. The new energy supply route, termed BarMar, is an alternative to the proposed […]
