Need to set up many large-scale hydrogen projects: ICE’s Alicia Eastman

When we started ICE, we were very focused on having inexpensive wind and solar power facilities mostly located in deserts next to the ocean. As a result, locations with high solar irradiation and wind speeds were chosen. These include regions in North Africa, South America, Australia, and the Middle East. This would ensure that the projects in these regions would have the highest capacity utilisation factors as well as the lowest cost of energy.

Larger Designs: Global market trends in the wind rotor and blade market

The market for wind turbine rotors and blades is expected to grow with the greater uptake of both onshore and offshore wind projects. The falling cost of wind power, coupled with favourable government policies and incentives, is expected to further drive market growth. However, manufacturing and transportation constraints, and a further decline in solar power prices are expected to be the key hurdles in the demand growth of blades and rotors.

The Case for Fuel Cell Technology in the UK

A new report “Fuel cells: The forgotten force in the fight against climate change” by the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (UK HFCA) highlights the role that fuel cell technology can play in delivering the UK Government’s clean growth ambitions. Labeling them a “forgotten force”, the paper details how fuel cells can help deliver the Prime Minister’s 10-point plan for a green industrial revolution and outlines the opportunity that exists for the UK to lead the world in the development of fuel cell technology.
