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.

Power Transport From Scotland to England

An “underwater energy superhighway” has been planned for transferring electricity from eastern Scotland to the northeast of England. The multi-billion-pound project will develop pair of high-voltage direct current cables, with an overall volume which reaches 4 gigawatts. Nicola Shaw, executive director at National Grid, in a statement said sufficient renewable electricity will be carried to nearly 4.5 million houses in the UK. The large-scale project will help electricity transfer in an expanse of 440 kilometers. The project, which is now under examination, will start construction in 2024. Authorities in Scotland need 11 GW offshore wind potential, which is currently 1 GW, by the year 2030. This new volume will provide over 8 million houses with required electricity. Samira H.

Scotland Installs Tidal Turbine in Japan

Scotland has developed a tidal turbine, inserted off the Japanese Naru Island. According to Simec Atlantis Energy (SAE), the turbine managed to generate 10 MW hours in 10 days of trial project. Graham Reid, CEO of SAE, said the facilities are a turning point in developing green energy, adding it’s the initial tidal turbine in the country. The east Asian country has many wave-energy potentials with its expansive coastline areas. Japan expects renewable energy to account for 22% to 24% of its energy by the year 2030. Also, it looks for net zero emissions target by 2050. The tidal turbine project could be a nice beginning for Japan’s green energy targets and there is a long way to go. Two years ago, Japan’s Natural Resources and Energy stated the country primarily relied on fossil fuels. Samira H.
