North Sea oil and gas sector has decades-long energy transition role: executives

The oil and gas sector will continue playing a role in the energy transition for "decades to come," from decarbonizing operations to capturing emissions at industrial facilities, BP production and operations head Gordon Birrell told the Offshore Europe conference Sept. 7. Birrell, together with executives from Norway's Equinor and UK producer Harbour Energy, stressed the ability of the North Sea industry to export energy expertise and technology around the world, including carbon capture and storage, hydrogen and offshore wind projects.

Biden's "Energy Earthshot" and Other Hydrogen News

In March 2021, President Biden unveiled his new infrastructure plan, promising “It is not a plan that tinkers around the edges. It is a once-in-a-generation investment in America unlike anything we have seen or done since we built the interstate highway system and the space race decades ago.” At the heart of his plan sits a commitment to clean energy provision and carbon neutrality, with hydrogen fuel playing a key role. Among other measures, the plan proposes to fund R&D in advanced hydrogen electrolyzers; build 15 decarbonized hydrogen demonstration projects in economically distressed areas; incentivize the adoption of electric and fuel-cell vehicles (FCEV).

Hydrogen power offers jobs boost, says government

Using hydrogen gas as a fuel produces only water as a by-product, rather than greenhouse gases such as CO2, which are harmful for the climate. It can be used to power fuel cells - devices that generate electricity through an electrochemical reaction - used in a turbine for electricity or burned in a boiler and vehicle engine. The government plans to deliver 5GW of hydrogen production capacity by 2030, estimating that the industry could be worth £900m and support more than 9,000 jobs by the same date. As such, it is a clean, versatile energy source that could power cars, trucks and trains, heat our homes and generate the power needed for industrial processes such as steel production.

National Hydrogen Mission can reshape renewable energy future: Industry

The government had said this mission will draw up a road map for using hydrogen as an energy source The National Hydrogen Mission announced by the Prime Minister on Sunday comes at a time when India is well on its way to meet its Paris commitments for the greater cause of climate change and global warming. The government had first announced the National Hydrogen Mission in the Budget, in February, and had said this mission will draw up a road map for using hydrogen as an energy source.
