Bloom Energy Tapped for Indian Green Hydrogen Microgrid (Int'l.)
Bloom Energy
Date: 2021-12-29
San Jose, California-headquartered hydrogen fuel cell specialist Bloom Energy reports it has been tapped by NTPC Limited, India's largest energy conglomerate and utility, to provide electrolyzer and hydrogen-powered fuel cell technologies for India's first green hydrogen-based energy storage deployment. Thee project aims to explore large-scale, off-grid hydrogen energy storage and microgrid projects at strategic locations throughout the country.

The collaboration will utilize Bloom Energy's solid oxide, high temperature electrolyzer to generate green hydrogen from solar powered electricity. The project is expected to commence in 2022.

Bloom Energy's high-temperature electrolyzer produces hydrogen more efficiently than low-temperature PEM and alkaline electrolyzers. Bloom's solid oxide fuel cells combine ambient air with natural gas, biogas, hydrogen, or a blend of fuels to produce electricity through a non-combustion electrochemical reaction, resulting in reduced carbon emissions, harmful air pollutants, and water use compared to grid alternatives, according to Bloom.

Napocor Touts Reforestation, Carbon Sequestration (Int'l.)
IndiaNational Power Corp.
Date: 2021-10-13
India's largest power company National Power Corp. (Napocor) is reporting the launch of its "Energy Carbon Sequestration Initiative" which promotes reforestation across 56,000 hectares of watersheds while helping energy companies and other firms in watershed areas meet their carbon offsetting targets.

Napocor's protection and reforestation projects are presently supported by the universal charge-environmental fund which is collected from electricity users every month. In July, the Indian Government Department of Energy issued an advisory aimed at encouraging independent power producers to join Napocor's carbon sequestration program.

India's Largest Floating Solar PV Project Commissioned (Int'l.)
National Thermal Power Corporation
Date: 2021-08-23
Indian state-owned National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Ltd, on Saturday, commissioned India's largest floating solar Photovoltaics (PV) project at 25MW on the reservoir of the 2000 MW, coal-fired Simhadri thermal station in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.

The 75-acre floating solar installation is expected to generate sufficient power for roughly 7,000 homes and eliminate at least 46,000 tpy of CO2e over the project's lifespan.

With a total installed capacity of 66900 MW, NTPC Group has 71 Power stations including 29 renewable projects. NTPC has set a target to install 60 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy (RE) capacity by 2032. (Source: National Thermal Power Corp., ETPC, 21 Aug., 2021) Contact: National Thermal Power Corp.,

Toshiba Abandoning Coal-Fired Plant Construction Business (Int'l.)
Date: 2020-11-13
Japanese conglomerate Toshiba reports it will no longer accept orders for the construction of coal-fired thermal power facilities.

The announcement is in keeping with the company's goal of cutting its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 pct by 2030 from its base level of 2019 and the commencement of operations of a large-scale carbon capture facility in Fukuoka, Japan. The company also plans to expand its solar renewable energy business to ¥650 billion ($6.17 billion) by 2030, from ¥190 billion yen ($1.80 billion) in 2019.

Toshiba's announcement comes as coal continues losing ground as Germany's Siemens Energy, U.S. multinational conglomerate General Electric (GE), India's largest coal-fired power generator, NTPC Ltd, and other energy sector majors increasingly abandon Old King Coal.
