The document puts forward: the standard system to support the development of the whole chain of hydrogen energy production, storage, transmission and use is basically established, forming 20 secondary subsystems and 69 tertiary subsystems. By 2025, more than 30 national and industry standards for hydrogen energy will be developed and revised; more than 30 international standards will be transformed, and more than 3 new proposals will be put forward.

【Policy】Bayannur City, Inner Mongolia, Releases Carbon Peak Policy

Recently, Inner Mongolia Bayannur City Development and Reform Commission issued the "Bayannur City Carbon Peak Implementation Plan", in the hydrogen energy, pointing out that: focus on meeting the important needs of non-electric energy green development, the development of renewable energy hydrogen. Around the hydrogen and hydrogen link, efforts to promote hydrogen production, storage (transport) hydrogen, hydrogen and other related equipment industry development, through the "system storage and transport" industry chain. Carry out clean energy substitution action, actively promote the promotion and application of hydrogen energy in the fields of transport, metallurgy, chemical industry, electric power, etc., encourage and support the integrated construction and operation of fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen refuelling stations and business models, and carry out the pilot construction of hydrogen/oil, hydrogen/gas, and hydrogen/electricity co-construction models.

Dynamic] Shanghai Municipality Releases Clean Air Action Plan (2023-2025)

Recently, the Shanghai Municipal People's Government issued the Shanghai Clean Air Action Plan (2023-2025). In the field of hydrogen energy the Plan proposes to accelerate the electrification of public sector vehicles, encourage the electrification of privately owned passenger vehicles, and continue to promote the demonstration pilot and promotion of the application of purely electric and hydrogen fuel cell heavy-duty freight vehicles. By 2025, the total number of fuel cell vehicle applications will strive to exceed 10,000, and the proportion of purely electric vehicles in the new vehicles purchased by individuals will exceed 50 per cent.

【Industry】The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) solicits typical cases of industrial green microgrids

August 9, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a notice on the organization of industrial green microgrid typical application scenarios and case collection, focusing on iron and steel, non-ferrous metals, petrochemicals, chemicals, building materials, machinery, light industry, textiles, electronics, and data centres, 5G base stations, and other key industry sectors, collecting a number of integrated application of distributed photovoltaic, decentralized wind power, high-efficiency heat pumps, new types of energy storage, hydrogen energy, residual heat and pressure utilization, smart energy management and control and other integrated systems. Industrial green microgrids with integrated systems such as energy management and control. Among them, hydrogen energy, renewable energy hydrogen or industrial by-products of hydrogen annual production scale of 5000 tonnes or more, and to achieve the use of nearby.

【Dynamic】 "Hydrogen into Ten Thousand Homes" Demonstration Hydrogen Filling Station for High-speed and Zero-carbon Service Areas Bid Opening

August 9, hydrogen high-speed and zero-carbon service area key technology integration and demonstration of hydrogen refuelling station EPC bidding, it is reported that the project is located in the Qingyin Expressway Jinan East Service Area South, hydrogen capacity of 500kg/12h, hydrogen pressure of 35MPa, the station level of the three-stage station. The current bid opening results show that the lowest bid for the Shandong Yutong Engineering and Honghua Construction and Installation Engineering consortium, the expected winning bid price of 13.507 million yuan.

【International】New Zealand, BlackRock to launch $1.22bn climate infrastructure fund

Recently, the New Zealand government and U.S.-based BlackRock (BLK.N) will launch a NZ$2bn (US$1.22bn) Climate Infrastructure Fund to invest in solar, wind, green hydrogen and battery storage technologies. The New Zealand government and BlackRock announced the fund in a joint statement, but didn't provide details on its launch date. The New Zealand government has set a target of 100 per cent renewable energy.

【International】First Hydrogen hydrogen-powered light commercial vehicle travels 742 miles in 47 hours

First Hydrogen's hydrogen-powered Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) has demonstrated outstanding performance in a test by Rivus, travelling 742 miles in 47 hours, it has learned. This four-week trial was completed on different routes to provide data on the vehicle's performance under different conditions.

The vehicles were emptied and loaded to 90 per cent of their maximum weight capacity and travelled 311 miles on a 10.3kg hydrogen fuel tank. Hydrogen fuel cells are used more for some types of travel and less for others.

【Dynamic】Korea Zinc to launch commercial production of green hydrogen in Australia by 2024

Korea Zinc has announced that it will launch commercial production of green hydrogen in Australia in 2024, according to local media reports. The move marks a major breakthrough for Korean companies producing renewable hydrogen overseas.

According to Pulse News Korea, the company's initial goal is to produce about 140 tonnes of green hydrogen per year at its green hydrogen plant in Townsville, Queensland, Australia, while building a 124 MW solar power plant.

Ark Energy, a subsidiary of Korea Zinc, plans to begin commercial operations at the green hydrogen plant in Australia in the first half of 2024 and verify its performance and safety through trial runs in the second half of the year. By 2030, Korea Zinc plans to produce 280,000 tonnes of green hydrogen at the plant. Their goal is to convert this hydrogen into ammonia and ship it to Korea. To this end, the company has formed a consortium with Hanwha Impact and SK gas Co. to promote this major project.
