The second summer school for undergraduate and graduate students, out of three to be held by the Haeolus project, was held online on 30 June and 1 July 2021. The presentations are included below.
The Haeolus project is very excited to announce that finally, on the 15th of June 2021, KES, in collaboration with Hydrogenics and Varanger Kraft, started the first of a suite of tests developed by Tecnalia for the energy-storage control strategy. With this, the 2.5 year long demonstration phase is officially started, after several delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other factors. The tests were run from Benevento in Italy to demonstrate remote operation, which is a key feature of Haeolus.
After a 2020 with so many delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are happy to report that the hydrogen system (both electrolyser, fuel cell, converters etc.) is on the way to Berlevåg, and is scheduled to arrive on 5 May 2021.
Personnel from Hydrogenics just arrived on site, after a week of quarantine at Oslo airport. From tomorrow, you may peek at the operations from the webcam in Berlevåg’s harbour.
A small and apparently obscure modification to the Norwegian Regulation for Grids and Energy Markets has just been announced by the Norwegian Government. As it happens, it may have a major impact on Haeolus and similar projects.
The “Triple Alliance” of EU Interreg projects HUGE, SEAFUEL and GenComm is holding a seminar this Thursday, 18th February 2021, 11:00-13:00 CET, on zero-emission mobility for coastal communities. Program and registration at this link, online, free attendance.
Safety is of paramount importance, also in environmentally friendly energy sources and carriers. The Fuel Cells & Hydrogen Joint Undertaking organised in November 2020 a workshop on safety in electrolysis, and all presentations are now available online.
Haeolus will be strongly represented at the upcoming Next Generation Electrolysers conference on 8-9 December 2020. The conference has an industrial focus and it’s the place you want to be if your company wants a piece of the action in large-scale hydrogen production.
