Hydrogen Demand: And Now The Contentious Disappointments

Credit to Author: Michael Barnard| Date: Sun, 19 Sep 2021 23:41:01 +0000

In the first part of this series, I projected and explained the plummeting hydrogen demand from petroleum refining and fertilizer, the biggest sources of demand today, through 2100. In the second part, I explored the flat demand segments, and the single source of significant demand increase I see for hydrogen in the next 20 years. […]

Hybrid Power Plants & Flexibility — The Future Of The Grid

Credit to Author: U.S. Department of Energy| Date: Sat, 04 Sep 2021 03:36:59 +0000

Imagine an electric grid powered by clean, renewable energy. Now imagine that this grid provides all the comfort and convenience consumers have come to expect as well as grid reliability and resiliency services that are similar to—or better than—conventional plants. That is the promise of the FlexPower project. With support from the U.S. Department of Energy […]
