  • [New] The Ineos hydrogen business will have its headquarters in the UK and aims to build capacity to produce hydrogen across its network of sites in Europe, in addition to partner sites where hydrogen can accelerate decarbonisation of energy. MSN
  • [New] In what will be Europe's largest ever investment in electrolysis projects to make green hydrogen with the potential to transform zero carbon hydrogen production, chemical giant Ineos is to invest around £1.69bn in green hydrogen production. MSN
  • [New] The production of green hydrogen is increasingly becoming economical, owing to the continuously decreasing cost of solar photovoltaic and wind electricity generation, which is expected to drive the growth of the global green hydrogen market during the forecast period. MarketResearch
  • [New] Resource mapping will help position African countries to capture some market share for green hydrogen supplies to Europe and an estimated 75.6 billion euros ($90 billion) worth of investments. Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
  • [New] Hyundai Glovis plans to introduce clean hydrogen and green ammonia based on its shipping capabilities, while collaborating on building a green ammonia-based hydrogen supply chain using Air Products' original technologies such as ammonia decomposition technology. Offshore Energy
  • [New] Hyundai Glovis will then introduce clean hydrogen and green ammonia to its shipping capabilities whilst also building an ammonia supply chain with Air Products. gasworld
  • [New] Preparing sites for key infrastructure decisions in the mid-2020s: For most sites, more clarity on optimal decarbonisation options depends on key infrastructure decisions, such as the future of hydrogen in the gas grid by 2026. UK Government
  • [New] Decisions in 2026 around hydrogen's role in providing heat in buildings will have a substantial impact on relative hydrogen and electricity demands - Figure 14 shows a scenario where hydrogen is not used to heat buildings, which is predominantly decarbonised via electrification through heat pumps. UK Government
  • [New] Hydrogen production is expected to establish in the 2020s before a significant ramp up in the early 2030s, using a range of production methods to meet demand. UK Government
  • [New] Ministers have an ambition to generating 5 gigawatts of hydrogen production by 2030 to be used in transport, manufacturing and heavy industry.
  • [New] If limited low-carbon hydrogen is used for heating, we would need to further grow the heat pump market to install up to 1.7 million heat pumps per year by the mid-2030s if we wish to switch over remaining gas boilers by 2050 through natural replacement cycles. UK Government
  • [New] If the UK pioneers the use of hydrogen for heating buildings, other countries may follow, creating new markets which could benefit from the UK's hydrogen products and expertise. UK Government
  • [New] Establishing large-scale trials of hydrogen for heating: We will support industry to conduct first-of-a-kind 100% hydrogen heating trials, including a neighbourhood trial by 2023 and a village scale trial by 2025. UK Government
  • [New] To support the development of a hydrogen industry in Europe, the EU has established the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, whose strategy includes securing 40 gigawatts of hydrogen imports from non-EU countries by 2030. Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
  • [New] Countries with high solar and wind potentials could benefit from Europe's upcoming demand for green hydrogen and position themselves as suppliers. Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
  • [New] With an increasing European demand for green hydrogen, partnerships are being established with African countries through the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance to secure 40 gigawatts of hydrogen imports from non-EU countries by 2030. Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
  • [New] Plug Power will build deployment scenarios for green hydrogen infrastructure at airports, while Airbus will provide insight on hydrogen aircraft characteristics. Resilience
  • [New] 395,000 jobs could be created by 2040 if Australia cashes - in on exports like green hydrogen, as well as the minerals and skills other countries need as they move towards net-zero emissions. ABC Radio National
