Japan's Target To Clear Emissions By 2050

With a plan to clear out gasoline by 2025, Japan announced its target of carbon-free emissions by 2050. Japan’s new Prime Minister, Yoshihide Suga, has focused on green gasses and removal of gasoline-operated autos. Determined to improve Japan’s situation amidst the pandemic, he aims to go with the goal already followed by the EU and countries like China. Japan’s government plans to support green growth scheme through a fund worth 2 trillion yens. According to "green growth strategy" electric cars will replace chic gasoline-fueled vehicles by 2035. To encourage customers, the government will reduce vehicle batteries’ costs by over half (to 10,000 or even less per kWh) in 10 years from now. Also targeting to increase hydrogen use to 3 million tons by then, the country has defined a strategy to address 14 industries including fuel ammonia and offshore wind power to get rid of carbon emissions.

Naturgy, Enagas Join to Build Hydrogen Facility

Naturgy utilities company and Enagas energy company and European TSO have joined up to construct a plant to produce clean hydrogen (with a capacity of 9,000 tons each year). The fuel will contribute to carbon-free environment. The Spanish companies aim to use the initiative to cut down high expenses to generate the fuel from renewable resources. In their statement, they stated that they have planned to establish a solar plant for operating electrolysis to break up water into oxygen and hydrogen. With a capacity of 400 megawatts and up to 60 megawatts electrolyzer, the solar factory is looking for financial support from EU’s rescue package ($917.55 billion). The statement didn’t say anything about the project's timing and the portion of investment. Samira H.

Hydrogen's Role in Future Houses Green Energy Consumption

Typical houses are nowadays equipped with high-tech homeware: rising demand for pieces of state-of-the-art home appliances reflects a speedy transformation in home amenities. Some still rely on non-renewable energy sources. There’s one question amidst this evolution: what will happen to the environment? “Green Hydrogen” project will make it available to use hydrogen, generated from renewable resources, for cooking and heating purposes. Designed by Scotland, the project will supply carbon-free heating energy for some 300 houses. In this sense, Boris Johnson, the UK’s Prime Minister, in November issued a Ten Point Plan for a “Green Industrial Revolution”, based on which the first town is supposed to be heated solely by hydrogen by 2030. Office of Gas and Electricity Markets, Ofgem, will allocate £18 million to the project. Scotland, too, will invest £6.9 million in the scheme. The EU, on its turn, intends to set up 40 GW electrolyzers to generate 10 million metric tons of renewable hydrogen by the year 2030. With various applications, hydrogen is able to be used in industry sector and transportation. Samira H.
