Abstract This £300k project, led by global engineering and construction company Amec Foster Wheeler, in collaboration with the BGS, assessed the economics of a range of flexible power generation systems which involve the production of hydrogen (with CCS) from coal, biomass or natural gas, its intermediate storage (e.g. in salt caverns deep underground) and production of power in flexible turbines. The work included mapping of potentially suitable hydrogen storage salt cavern sites in and around the UK and provided the ETI with a flexible economic modelling tool to assess the range of possible options. The ETI’s energy system modelling work suggests that systems such as these could provide a valuable contribution to the future energy mix, filling the gap between base load nuclear plant and low carbon power generation.

PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems - Jack Dobson-Smith
The STA continues to call on the Government to address serious flaws in the accuracy of its photovoltaic deployment data following the publication of its latest statistics, which state that solar deployment in 2019 was down by over 60MW compared to 2018, suggesting the slowest year for the industry since 2010. [1] However, the statistics fail to accurately capture PV systems sized above 50kW, with no update to the ‘50 kW to ≤ 5 MW’ category since March 2019, and only one large-scale site added to ‘> 25 MW’ category in 2019, a 34.7MWp array completed in December by GRIDSERVE. ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems appeared first on Solar Trade Association.
Decarbonisation of Heat: Why It Needs Innovation - Emily Sotudeh
Decarbonising heat is key to achieving Net Zero, and innovators have a vital role to play. Here is our overview of the decarbonisation challenge and how we can tackle it through low carbon home heating innovation.\nThe post Decarbonisation of Heat: Why It Needs Innovation appeared first on Energy Systems Catapult.
Moving hydrogen from hype to hope - William Todts
\n \n “I see a pivotal role for hydrogen,” in Europe’s efforts to achieve its climate goals, said Frans Timmermans. And up jumped the crowd in a rare standing ovation for a climate commissioner. Hydrogen is the talk of the town and the Commission is widely expected to make it a big priority in its green industrial strategy. So, are we about to enter the golden age for hydrogen and - if so - what does it mean for transport? \n\n \n\n\n \n \n \n\nRelated Environmental IssueClimate Change and EnergyRelated Transport ModeAviationCarsFreightFuelsInfrastructureLorriesShippingRelated Policy AreaInvestmentStandards
