The post What’s Been Holding Hydrogen Fuel Cells Back, and How to Change That appeared first on POWER Magazine.

The technology used in modern hydrogen fuel cells is not new. In fact, NASA used fuel cells for its manned space missions in the 1960s. But fuel cells have not really “taken off” (pardon the pun) in earthly applications since that time. Some industry insiders believe that will change very soon. “We’ve been sort of […]

Originally published on WRI’s Blog. By Devashree Saha, Tom Cyrs and Alex Rudee  The Biden administration has committed to a historically ambitious climate agenda. We can expect a profound shift in U.S. federal climate policy — from one of continued domestic rollbacks and international disengagement, to one of forward progress and cooperation. This is critical, as it is not possible […]

The post IEA/NEA: Renewables, Nuclear, Hydrogen Gaining Cost Competitiveness appeared first on POWER Magazine.

By 2025, the economics of low-carbon generation technologies are poised to disrupt conventional fossil fuel generation so dramatically, onshore wind could have the lowest levelized costs of electricity (LCOE) on average, and nuclear power could emerge as the dispatchable low-carbon technology with the lowest expected costs.  Those are key findings in the Dec. 9-issued 2020 […]

UK Undergoing ‘Remarkable Shift’ in Power Generation

Credit to Author: Darrell Proctor| Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2020 17:24:00 +0000

The post UK Undergoing ‘Remarkable Shift’ in Power Generation appeared first on POWER Magazine.

Natural gas-fired generation continues to provide much of the electricity in the UK, but renewable power in total at times has taken the lead spot in the country’s generation mix over the past several months. The country has moved almost entirely away from coal, which a decade ago teamed with natural gas to provide three-quarters […]
