The world’s first hydrogen-powered ship is on a six-year, zero-emission global voyage thanks in part to Rockwell Automation’s advanced automation technology.
First developed in 2017, the Energy Observer travels the world as a “lab in motion” using a combination of intermittent renewable energy sources including solar panels, hydrogen fuel cells, lithium-ion batteries, and hydrogen production to achieve energy autonomy.
Calvados joins Saint-Nazaire and Fécamp in spurring development of French offshore wind industry
February 23, 2021, /3BL Media/ - Construction is about to start on the 448-MW Calvados offshore wind project, Enbridge’s third offshore wind farm in France, as the project secures a key investment milestone. The project will provide enough energy to power to nearly 300,000 homes in the Normandy region when it reaches operation in 2024.
Cummins’ hydrogen fuel cells are being integrated into North America’s first commercial hydrogen fuel cell powered ferry.
A 70-foot, 75 passenger, zero-emission ferry named “Sea Change” will be the flagship for a planned future fuel cell powered fleet in the bay area of San Francisco. The project is designed to demonstrate and test the potential commercialization of fuel-cell powered marine vessels in the global maritime industry.
Intel Corp. enabled PGE agreement with Avangrid Renewables to add 138-megawatts of new renewable energy, filling program’s original capacity.

As the world moves towards carbon neutrality, we will witness the changing colours of energy – from brown, carbon-intensive sources, to green, carbon-neutral sources.
This is critical because the demand for power will continue to grow and, as the world becomes more digitalised, concerns over direct personal exposure to emissions from the use of energy will also continue to grow.
With renewable energy poised to grow at unprecedented pace and scale, Ørsted points to three sustainability challenges at the core of driving a sustainable green energy build-out. Read more in their Sustainability report 2020
The global deployment of renewable energy has gathered pace over the past decade, and is set to triple from about 1,600 GW of installed renewable capacity in 2020 to nearly 4,500 GW by 2030. An accelerated green build-out is critical to halve carbon emissions by the end of this decade and limit global warming to 1.5 °C.
