Invasion of Ukraine an inadvertent boost for green hydrogen

Rystad Energy and BloombergNEF indicate that the impact of the war has sent prices of fossil fuel-tied forms of hydrogen production surging, leaving the gradual but consistent downward price trend of green hydrogen now looking remarkably competitive.

IHS Markit: Battery prices won’t fall until 2024

Business data analyst IHS Markit published a series of clean tech predictions for the year that also highlighted the rising proportion of sub-5MW solar projects in the global market, and cheaper clean energy financing costs even as panel prices continue to rise.

Sunrise brief: Missing–Five to ten gigawatts of utility scale solar in 2022

Also on the rise: Equitable access to solar is part of DOE-backed plan. One to six million metric tons of lithium may lie beneath the Salton Sea. Adopting standards for EVs will accelerate the path for these vehicles. Solar tracker manufacturers can expect a boom in the US through 2025. Heliogen plans concentrated solar power manufacturing facility. IBM, ABB, and Worley team up to help energy companies build and operate green hydrogen facilities.

Also on the rise: Soltage invests in new community solar projects. Appalachian Power seeks 150MW of solar in West Virginia. Breaking research reveals solar cells can be used as lens-free, high-speed optical detectors in underwater environments. Duke looking for 1.1GW of renewables in Indiana. Community solar project in Virginia launches 25% renewable energy option for a small premium. Convergent’s battery storage facility is up and running in the LA Basin.

LA could soon be home to the nation’s largest green hydrogen infrastructure system

Southern California Gas Company is submitting an application to build a 10 to 20GW electrolyzer and 25 to 35GW of new and curtailed wind and solar, along with 2GW of energy storage, to deliver green hydrogen to the Los Angeles Basin.

Sunrise brief: Finance experts discuss growing opportunities for installing storage projects and what will make them more financeable

Also on the rise: Solar growth occurred despite more than a year of price increases. Interconnection delays and costs plague utility-scale developers. Affordable hydrogen-based system for seasonal energy storage could be achieved at a hydrogen price lower than $3. California PUC raises renewable energy target. Impending 3G shutdown may affect inverters: there’s an app for that.

Hydrogen under $3/kg may ensure affordable seasonal energy storage in the US

Researchers from the United States have investigated how fuel cells and electrolyzers may be able to operate under intermittent availability provided by both wind and solar and have found that an affordable hydrogen-based system for seasonal energy storage could be achieved at a hydrogen price lower than $3, produced from inexpensive renewable electricity at $0.02/kWh.
