    Lhyfe Starts Producing the First Hundred Kilos of Renewable Hydrogen
    [​IMG]
    Renewable hydrogen produced directly from wind power becomes reality. At the end of August, just a year after the foundation stone was laid for this industrial facility, Lhyfe began producing its first hundred kilograms of ecological hydrogen and is ready for industrial scale production.

    Following a few days of testing at this first site, for which the foundation stone was laid only a year ago in Bouin (Vendée, France), Lhyfe has produced 627 kilograms of renewable hydrogen, using an electrolyser powered by wind turbines a few meters away. For more information see the IDTechEx report on The Hydrogen Economy, Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Production Methods.

    The purpose of this initial production was to finalize tests, before the end of September when industrial production and sales will start for new partners whose names will be revealed soon. Lhyfe will henceforth produce 300 kilograms of renewable hydrogen a day, before ramping up to a tonne a day in the coming months.

    This industrial production facility for renewable hydrogen, connected directly to a wind farm, is a unique technical achievement and the first of its kind in the world. This site is fully in line with the acceleration of hydrogen deployment around the world and in the strategic plans of a growing number of countries."

    :)

    Its a joke . We used to have gas in most houses .......... gasometers in most towns ......... coal gas ......... and then ' natural ' gas ............ and it all got dropped ........... because it leeks ........... poisons people ...... and explodes ..........

    i am just a realstic old walrus. who knows that such green solutions do not work. and they cost much more money too..:)
    but that is no excuse for getting called a luddite, by a pink bot. it aint polite, for one thing...

    21.4% Record Efficiency for Flexible Solar Cells
    [​IMG]
    A new efficiency record of 21.4% for flexible CIGS solar cell on polymer film has been achieved by scientists at Empa. Solar cells of this type are especially suited for applications on roofs, transport vehicles or mobile devices.

    A group of scientists at Empa has pushed the efficiency of flexible solar cells to a new limit. Independent measurements revealed an efficiency of 21.4 percent when these types of solar cells convert light into electricity. For comparison: the best efficiency of a non-flexible solar cell made of crystalline silicon is reported at 26.7 percent. For further information see the IDTechEx report on Energy Harvesting for Electronic Devices 2020-2040.

    High efficiency flexible solar cells are processed on a polymer film by a low temperature co-evaporation method for the growth of the thin film Cu(In,Ga)Se2 semiconductor that absorbs the light. Empa scientist Shiro Nishiwaki optimized the composition of the layer and alkali dopants for achieving performance improvement. The researchers then investigated the effects of combined heat and illumination exposure after the processing of solar cells and found a boost in the photovoltaic performance, which remains stable after several months. The solar cell efficiency of 21.38% was independently measured at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg, Germany.

    Cota Real Wireless Power Reaches New Heights
    [​IMG]
    From the very beginning, one of Ossia's goals has been to make wireless power as ubiquitous as the electrical socket ... not only in the US, but globally. One of the biggest hurdles to do so is to meet certain regulatory approvals in each country or nation. We are proud to let you know that Europe and the United Kingdom are two such regions that have embraced Cota® Real Wireless Power — without any distance restrictions.

    What this means is that companies that build or sell products in the EU and UK are now able to license the Cota technology and leverage wireless power over air in their IoT and mobile devices, including product trackers, wearables, sensors, digital store labels, and more. And this power can be delivered anywhere in the building, space, or vehicle that is Cota-enabled with wireless power transmitters. For further information see the IDTechEx report on Energy Harvesting Microwatt to Gigawatt: Opportunities 2020-2040.

    Ossia's current commercial partners are thrilled that the Cota system is in compliance with the radio, emissions, immunity, and RF safety standards applicable under the EU Radio Equipment Directive and the UK Radio Equipment Regulation. It's a moment they've been waiting and planning for, and they already have some pretty novel ideas about how wireless power without distance limitations will transform their products and how they do business.

    Pinky .......... stop and think ? ......... all these little boys dreams of the future are contrary to the facts , to science and to socialism .

    The visions that your advertising are the worst possible case capitalist psychofantasy nightmare = they want us to consume our way out of the problems consumption brings with it by more consumption .

    Its mental ponsy = borrowing cash that we havent got from ourselves so that the rich can make a profit selling us goods that we dont need ...... and cant aford financialy and socialy ...... that are killing the biosphere . The ONLY possible theoretical solution is to stop s**tting the earth full NOW .

    Wich means war ........... because the amis , the chinese , poly-trickers and the rich will never share ...... or stop their world domination strategy .
