The plant is designed for an installed capacity of up to 15 MW and will produce about 2,000 tpy of green hydrogen by electrolysis. The electricity required for production comes from the nearby Wildegg-Brugg hydropower plant owned by Axpo.
The plant's hydrogen production will be transported to the filling station of Axpo's local partner, Voegtlin-Meyer, and also sold to other area filling stations to power trucks and buses. Subject to regulatory approvals, the plant is scheduled to come online at the end of 2023.

The Facilities include two run-of-river hydroelectric facilities -- the 12-MW Curtis Mills and 48-MW Palmer Falls. Curtis Palmer has a power purchase agreement for energy and renewable energy credits (RECs) with Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation.
This joint acquisition is the first under the Strategic Alliance formed by Innergex
and Hydro-Quebec in 2020. (Source: Innergex, Website PR, 25 Oct., 2021) Contact: Innergex, 450 928-2550, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.innergex.com; Hydro-Quebec, Caroline Des Rosiers, 514 289-5005, www.hydroquebec.com

The batteries will be virtually coupled with RWE's run-of-river hydro power stations along the river Mosel. This coupling process raises the total capacity of the batteries by another 15 pct.
The roughly €50 million project will incorporate 420 lithium-ion battery racks housed in 47 overseas shipping containers spread across two RWE power stations. The system is expected to start operations at the end of 2022. (Source: RWE, PR, reve, 25 July, 2021) Contact:

Hydro-Quebec's Strategic Plan 2020-2024 identifies various applications for clean hydrogen, including renewable natural gas (RNG), carbon-neutral synthetic hydrocarbon fuels, and others
Overall, GHG emissions from Quebec hydropower (run-of-river generating stations and generating stations with reservoirs) are similar to those from wind, five times lower than those from photovoltaic solar, 50 times lower than those from natural gas-fired plants and 70 times lower than those from coal-fired plants.

.HS Orka holds two operating geothermal facilities (Reykjjanes and Svartsengi) totaling 174 MW, the 10 MW Bruarvirkjun run-of-river hydro project which is under construction, a number of prospective renewable power projects, as well as a 30 pct equity interest in the Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa and Resort in Iceland. The fully funded transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions.
Net proceeds from the sale will be used to reimburse the $228 million one-year credit facility contracted in October 2018 at the time of the acquisition of the remaining interest in the Cartier wind farms and operating entities, to deleverage corporate facilities and for general corporate purposes.

Selections were made across three topic areas, outlined below. The first two aim to address fundamental scientific and engineering challenges of generating power from dynamic, low-velocity and high-density waves and currents. The third topic area is targeted to provide better information to reduce the costs and time to permit projects that include
Early Stage Device Design Research,
Controls and Power Take Off Design Integration and Testing, and
Dissemination of Environmental Data and Analyses to Facilitate the Marine Energy Regulatory Process.
