【Policy】Build a clean hydrogen trading market! US hydrogen tax credit rules released - tax credit amount linked to life-cycle emissions analysis

The US Inflation Reduction Act, announced on 27 July, includes support for hydrogen through a new tax credit that will provide incentives of up to $3/kg for low-carbon hydrogen, subject to certain requirements.

Under the text of the bill, released by Senate Democrats on 27 July, the multiplier mechanism would be triggered if a producer begins construction of a new facility within a specified time period and meets certain wage and labour requirements for the project. The multiplier mechanism would bring the amount of tax credits within the range previously proposed in the Rebuild Better Act, which would also provide up to $3/kg of clean hydrogen, depending on its carbon intensity.

Projects that meet these requirements will receive a tax credit of between 60 cents/kg and $3/kg, while those that do not will receive a tax credit of between 12 cents/kg and 60 cents/kg. Similar to the Rebuild for Better Act of 2021, the exact amount of credits will be determined by accounting for the whole life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of hydrogen. The emissions measurement scheme will be based on the Argonne National Laboratory's Greenhouse Gas, Emissions Control and Energy Use Technology model, known as GREET.

The bill also includes a $2 billion fund dedicated to supporting domestic production of clean transportation technologies, including fuel cell electric vehicles.

【Industry】BMW to mass produce hydrogen fuel cell vehicles

BMW is pushing ahead with the mass production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. CEO Oliver Zipse announced to the German business newspaper (handelsblatt) that hydrogen will play an important role as an energy carrier in many parts of the world. To this end, the BMW Group said in a statement that a series of vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells will be tested daily on European roads and that BMW's first small hydrogen fuel cell car will be unveiled at the end of 2022.

BMW plans to make hydrogen an important powertrain pillar. The premium BMW X series is very popular among customers, and the current energy crisis has given a great impetus to the hydrogen push, which will also see fuel cells in volume production in new categories in the future", said CEO Zipse.

Since 2013, BMW has been working with Japanese automaker Toyota on fuel cell technology. Recently, a Chinese car manufacturer announced the first mass production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and researchers at the German Aerospace Centre announced a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle at a low price.

BMW plans to mass produce hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and Klaus Fröhlich, a member of the BMW Group Development Board, said: "Different alternative drive systems will coexist in the future because no single solution can meet all the mobility needs of customers worldwide. In the long term, hydrogen fuel cell drives can become the fourth pillar of the drive portfolio."

【News】HydraV Fuel Cell Co., Ltd. Hydrogen Ejector successfully developed

The biggest advantage of the pilot injector is that it saves energy, is simpler and more reliable due to the absence of complex moving parts, and it can be a quarter of the size of a hydrogen circulation pump.

The project took over 3 months to complete from conceptual design, system index testing, parameter extraction, pilot design, pilot machining, pilot testing and other processes, culminating in the success of the 80kw system on the self-researched power reactor.

The self-researched pilot can now cover the power range 4-80kW, with a net power increase of 2kW at the rated point system, a 1% reduction in hydrogen consumption, and a 50% reduction in hydrogen circuit cost.
