Vision Hydrogen Weekly丨U.S.A.S.D. spends $7 billion to support Green Hydrogen Centres, National Energy Administration releases 14 plans to develop hydrogen energy-related standards
【Policy】The maximum subsidy is 2 million for the construction and operation this year! Hebei Tangshan released hydrogen station construction subsidy implementation rules
On 17th October, Tangshan Development and Reform Commission issued the Implementing Rules for Hydrogen Station Construction Subsidies in Tangshan City, which states that: the subsidy for the hydrogen station that will be completed and put into operation in 2023 will be 2 million RMB; the subsidy for the hydrogen station that will be completed and put into operation in 2024 will be 1 million RMB; and the subsidy for the hydrogen station that will be completed and put into operation in 2025 will be 500,000 RMB.
【International】Spending $7 billion to support! The United States announced seven green hydrogen centres!
On October 13, the U.S. Department of Energy announced $7 billion to launch seven regional clean hydrogen centres across the country to accelerate the fact that low-cost clean hydrogen can be produced with zero or near-zero carbon emissions and is critical to achieving the Biden administration's climate and energy security goals. The Green Hydrogen Hubs are expected to produce a total of 3 million metric tonnes of hydrogen per year, reaching nearly one-third of the 2030 U.S. production goal and reducing emissions from hard-to-de-carbonise industrial sectors, which account for 30 per cent of total U.S. carbon emissions. An additional $1 billion will be used to support the demand side of the Hydrogen Energy Centre, driving innovative applications of clean hydrogen. The Hydrogen Energy Centre received 79 applications for initial projects, from which 33 were subsequently selected by the Department of Energy as projects to be encouraged.
【Policy】 Yantai, Shandong Province to develop the whole hydrogen energy industry chain
Recently, the People's Government of Yantai City, Shandong Province, issued the Medium and Long-Term Development Plan for the Hydrogen Energy Industry in Yantai City (2022-2030) (hereinafter referred to as the "Plan"). The Plan focuses on achieving the goal of carbon peak and carbon neutrality, and explores the strategy of integrating hydrogen energy into the regional energy system and the coordinated development of multiple energy sources, proposing that the scale of the hydrogen energy industry will reach 10 billion yuan by 2025, and that the scale of the hydrogen energy industry will reach more than 30 billion yuan by 2030, forming a hydrogen energy industry system that integrates hydrogen production, storage, transportation, processing, and use, and providing strong support for the green and low-carbon transformation of Yantai City's energy structure. Strong support for the green and low-carbon transformation of Yantai's energy structure.
【Policy】100 million yuan per year for three consecutive years! Qingdao issued a support policy to create a first-class hydrogen energy industrial park in China
On 12th October, Qingdao Municipal Government issued "Qingdao Hydrogen Energy Industrial Park Development Policies". A total of 10 policies, put forward will be from the land security, scientific and technological innovation, talent attraction, support industry chain supply chain synergies, etc., the city's financial contribution of 100 million yuan a year for three consecutive years, used to support the park's major infrastructure, public service platforms, scientific research and innovation incubators and other key projects, to encourage the city's hydrogen industry chain upstream and downstream projects to the park to cluster, and make every effort to build the first-class hydrogen energy industrial park in the country.
【Policy】Strengthen subsidy policy support! Inner Mongolia responded to the proposal of hydrogen energy heavy truck development
Recently, the Inner Mongolia Department of Industry and Information Technology published a response to the DAB Inner Mongolia District Committee "on accelerating the development of hydrogen-fuelled heavy-duty truck industry proposal", the Inner Mongolia Department of Industry and Information Technology said that, according to the work plan, give full play to the government's support for the hydrogen industry in the hydrogen industry in the clean energy hydrogen, hydrogen storage and transportation, hydrogen refuelling, hydrogen fuel electric pile and other industrial projects; at the same time will strengthen the support of subsidy policy, the Department of Industry and Information Technology together with the financial in the region to match the proportion of the ground subsidy The Department of Industry and Information Technology will work with the Finance Department to proportionally match the local subsidies in the region to support and further reduce the cost of purchasing vehicles.
【Industry】There are 14 items related to hydrogen energy! National Energy Board issued 2023 energy sector industry standards development plan
October 12, the National Energy Board issued the "National Energy Board Comprehensive Division on the issuance of 2023 energy sector industry standard development and revision plan and foreign language version of the translation plan of the notice", in which a total of 14 hydrogen industry standards, including hydrogen transmission pipeline welding specifications, solid oxide electrolytic cell single cell test methods, solid oxide fuel cells more than 10kW stationary power generation system and unit installation The industry standards include: hydrogen transmission pipeline welding specifications, solid oxide electrolytic cell single-cell test methods, solid oxide fuel cell stationary power generation systems and unit installation above 10kW, electric power hydrogen production feasibility study preparation procedures, and low-carbon clean hydrogen energy evaluation standards.
【International】France to build Europe's largest hydrogen storage cylinder production plant
A few days ago, the French auto parts manufacturer Pio company in the Hauts-de-France region of the city of Gombigny to start the construction of Europe's largest hydrogen storage tank production plant. The total investment in the plant is about 150 million euros, of which the French government provides about half of the subsidies. The plant is expected to produce 80,000 hydrogen cylinders per year after it goes into operation in 2024, and will mainly supply buses and heavy-duty lorries owned by Strandis and Renault.
It is reported that Pio's orders in the hydrogen sector have totalled more than €4 billion so far. The company plans to build large-scale factories in Michigan, USA and Shanghai, China to produce hydrogen storage equipment in the future, the company's director said. The Michigan plant will have an annual capacity of 100,000 hydrogen cylinders and the Shanghai plant will have an annual capacity of 60,000 cylinders.
