The four-year Levenmouth Community Energy Project is supported by the Local Energy Challenge Fund, and will see the Hydrogen Office in Methil developed into a world-class demonstrator of hydrogen applications generated from renewable sources. ‘Green Hydrogen’ produced at the site can be stored, and then reconverted to electricity at times when on-site wind and solar generation is low, helping to offset the intermittency of renewable energy. Some of the hydrogen will also compressed and stored for 350bar refuelling of vehicles. Full Story

Bright Green Hydrogen has awarded contracts worth more than £2 million for the supply and installation of electrolysers for the production, storage and dispensing of green hydrogen. Full Story
Logan Energy awarded first contract for Levenmouth Community Energy Project
Edinburgh-based Logan Energy has been awarded the first contract in the ambitious Levenmouth Community Energy Project.
Bright Green Hydrogen, the initiative’s lead partner, has appointed Logan Energy, specialists in providing energy solutions incorporating electroylsers, fuel cells and hydrogen technologies to deliver key components of the project which will investigate the potential of hydrogen as a future fuel.
The four-year project will see the Hydrogen Office in Methil developed into a world-class demonstrator of hydrogen applications generated from renewable sources. Hydrogen will be both: stored at the site and reconverted to electricity at times when on-site wind and solar generation is low, helping to offset the intermittency of renewable energy; and compressed and stored for 350bar refuelling of vehicles.

Toyota has teamed with one of its subsidiaries, Hino Motors, to bring a new fuel cell bus to Japan. The bus is based on the hybrid buses that Hino has developed in the past and will be equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell that has been designed by Toyota. This same fuel cell technology is being used to power another Toyota vehicle, the Mirai, which was launched in Japan late last year. Full Story
