Technical “on-site” visit of the 25 kW and 100 kW EVERYWH2ERE gensets

Technical “on-site” visit of the 25 kW and 100 kW EVERYWH2ERE gensets 1024 768 Pedro Casero

From 14 to 16 September 2021, Power Cell Sweden, THT Control, Acciona colleagues met with FRIEM, LINDE and GENPORT in Segrate (MI – FRIEM Headquarters) in order to make a technical “on-site” visit of the 25 kW and 100 kW EVERYWH2ERE Gensets.
The goal of this meeting, one of the first physical ones after a long time, was to “put the hands together on the gensets”, fixing some issues and at the same times start to think about how to optimize the design for the next gensets, learning from the experience of these first two ones.

Some tests, particularly on 100 kW genset, have been performed too, targeting the finalization of gensets commissioning activities.

We attended the final VALIDATION stages of GENSETS

After months of working from distance, where the members of the consortium have made a great effort to contribute as much as possible to the project Finally, on the 4th of August, the #EVERYWHERE team met in person to attend the final VALIDATION phases of the gensets at the FRIEM facilities in Milan. It was a great opportunity to see the gensets, the connections with the storage especially designed to feed them and their behaviour duringhydrogen start-up.

Both FRIEM, a global leader in electric energy conversion for over 70 years, and GENPORT, developer and manufacturer of an advanced, lightweight technology for portable and stationary power generation and storage, presented the testing and validation progress on the two already manufactured prototypes of 1 x 25kW and 1 x 100kW respectively. In the coming weeks Powercell, expert in creating electrical power solutions with minimal environmental impact, will adjust some parameters via software to achieve higher power ranges. Susy manufacturer and THT partner, responsable of the thremal management and containerization of the gensets,  will contribute to optimize the equipment.

We will continue working to make this ambitious project possible, which contributes to the 2030 Agenda strategy set by the United Nations. Let’s remember that #EVERYWHERE also contributes to meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Building on the principle of “leaving no one behind”, the new Agenda emphasizes a holistic approach to achieving sustainable development for all. Specifically goal 7 “Affordable and Clean Energy”, goal 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities” and goal 13 “Climate Action”. 


 

EU GREEN WEEK MAIN CONCLUSIONS

EU GREEN WEEK MAIN CONCLUSIONS 952 828 admin

Yesterday, 3rd of June, we participated at the European Green Week 2021.

It was dedicated to the zero pollution ambition. It examined other relevant initiatives of the European Green Pact  in the fields of energy, industry, mobility, agriculture, fisheries, health and biodiversity.

Our presentation, under the title “Decarbonizing EU cities via hydrogen gensets”  brought to the table interesting conclusions such as:

“Diesel Generators are already becoming less polluting, but hydrogen gensets can be the solution for zero carbon noise and air pollution at the local level”- Arthur Hinsch, ICLEI, European Secretariat.  He led the talk: “HOW TO TACKLE EU CITIES POLLUTION AND THE ROLE OF GENSETS IN EU URBAN ATMOSPHERE

“We offer the opportunity to make your event more sustainable” – Sabina Fiorot, ENVIPARK. She led the talk “EVERYWH2ERE DEMONSTRATION CAMPAIGN”

“Festivals and Events are a sweet spot for H2 Fuel Cells, from a business, health and climate points of view” – Jacob Bilabel (Green Music Initiative)

Thanks to all the participants and attendees who made it possible.

Pollution affects us all, through the air we breathe, the water we drink, or the soil in which we grow our food. It is a major environmental cause of multiple mental and physical illnesses and premature deaths, especially among children, people with certain medical conditions and the elderly. This particularly happens in cities, where not only cars, transports, heating and cooling systems etc. emissions have an impact. There are indeed systems that are present everyday in different corners of our cities that are so far still based on fossil fuel solutions: temporary and transportable power gensets.

The EU Action Plan towards Zero Pollution Ambition is a key action of the European Green Pact scheduled for spring 2021. The European Green Week 2021 will be dedicated to the “zero pollution ambition”. It will also examine other relevant initiatives of the European Green Pact  in the fields of energy, industry, mobility, agriculture, fisheries, health and biodiversity.

In line with these climate initiatives and in order to tackle aforementioned challenges, the EVERYWH2ERE project is developing transportable gensets based on fuel cell hydrogen technologies, with the aim of being a viable alternative to diesel generators and being able to supply ZERO EMISSION energy in temporary off-grid events and in construction sites. EU Green Week 2021 will be an opportunity to show how it is possible to make hydrogen affordable to produce power in a sustainable way anywhere in European cities.

MAIN TOPICS TO BE PRESENTED

  • PROJECT INTRODUCTION –Stefania Marongiu (RINA Consulting SpA)
  • HOW TO TACKLE EU CITIES POLLUTION AND THE ROLE OF GENSETS IN SUCH POLLUTION  – Arthur Hinsch (ICLEI EU Secretariat)
  • GENSET INTRODUCTION and DEMO CAMPAIGN INTRODUCTION – Sabina Fiorot (Environment Park)
  • THE IMPACT OF GENSETS IN EU FESTIVALS and DEMO OPPORTUNITIES FOR FESTIVAL – Jacob Bilabel  (Green Music Initiative)
  • THE USE OF GENSETS IN CONSTRUCTION SITES, THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT AND ACCIONA EVERYWH2ERE Demonstration Site – Miguel Angel Paris Torres (ACCIONA)

We look forward to seeing you on June 3 from 11am to 12pm to tell you more about our project at #EUGreenWeek2021.

TALK AT EUROSONICS WITH STEFANO BARBERIS

TALK AT EUROSONICS WITH STEFANO BARBERIS 702 396 admin

Did we lose a year in our fight on climate change while being forced to focus on something completely different? Or does this crisis also bare something positive and a chance for real change? While our industry was locked down almost completely European CO2-emissions decreased by 11% the Global Carbon Project reports. The European Union kick-started the European Green Deal and in the middle of Corona’s second wave the EU heads of State and Government committed to even stricter climate goals until the end of this decade: a reduction of 55% instead of 40% compared to the numbers of 1990. But what happens when we get out of this crisis and the flood gates reopen for tourism, consumption and also for culture and entertainment? How do we keep our promises, live up to our responsibilities and even set lighthouse examples while we cheer for the new freedom, regained opportunities and seek to make up for the losses suffered in the past year? We will lead this uncomfortable discussion talking from many angles such as the perspectives of promoters, artists & activists, science & innovation and last but not least politics.

We are celebrating the Best OutReach Award grated by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking

We are celebrating the Best OutReach Award grated by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking 1024 576 admin

The EVERYWH2ERE consortium includes 13 partners from 6 EU countries (Italy, Finland, Sweden, Germany, France, Spain) each having high value knowledge in all needed scientific and technological branches required by the objectives of the Project and each of them contributed to make the project great and successful, also promoting it among stakeholders and future potential customers.

Therefore all of us are glad to celebrate that EVERYWH2ERE project has been recently awarded with the Best OutReach Award by the FUEL CELLS AND HYDROGEN JOINT UNDERTAKING during the European Hydrogen Week, celebrated from 23 to 27 November 2020.

The European Hydrogen Forum is a unique event bringing together industry, policy-makers, government representatives as well as the research community to steer the potential for green hydrogen technologies and discuss the latest developments.

Under the theme “Kick-starting the EU hydrogen industry to achieve the EU climate goals”, the Forum featured a series of panel discussions, smart talks, matchmaking activities and virtual cocktails on the deployment of clean hydrogen, synergies among EU funding and financing instruments, and the creation of impact through dedicated research projects.

For this reason, the European Hydrogen Week has been the best scenario to present our EveryWh2ere initiatives. Moreover, the award recognizes our main purpose: to bring thanks to Fuel cell based genset, Fuel cell and Hydrogen technologies closer to general audience making European cities as a living lab for our innovative and clean solutions, thus contributing to the European Green Deal objectives too.
