German government outlines $10 billion plan to boost green hydrogen

first_imgGerman government outlines $10 billion plan to boost green hydrogen FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Associated Press:The German government agreed Wednesday on a long-term strategy for increasing production and use of hydrogen as part of a plan to cut the country’s greenhouse gas emissions.While hydrogen is currently produced almost exclusively from fossil fuels, the government wants to encourage its production from excess electricity generated by renewable energy sources.Experts say this so-called green hydrogen could help smooth out the problem of solar and wind power’s fluctuating supply, and replace fossil fuels in industrial processes that require high temperatures such as steel making.The government plans to invest 9 billion euros ($10.2 billion) to promote hydrogen production and use, including 2 billion euros that will go toward projects in developing countries such as Morocco.It set a goal of building hydrogen production facilities in Germany with a capacity of up to five gigawatts by 2030.Germany’s industry lobby group BDI welcomed the government decision. “Only with hydrogen at competitive prices, from domestic sources and imports, can the goal of climate neutrality by 2050 be reached,” said BDI deputy head Holger Loesch.[Frank Jordans]More: German government agrees on national hydrogen strategylast_img read more

Syracuse unveils sleek new helmets in win over Tulane

first_img Published on September 21, 2013 at 7:19 pm Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+ After unveiling new pants last week, the Orange upped its swag to the next degree on Saturday.When Syracuse (2-2) took the field against Tulane (2-2) it did so with snazzy new helmets. The sleek, matte helmets feature an “S” in the middle with classy navy blue up top and radiant orange on the bottom.“We want to keep true to the themes as we move forward in those designs, but I’m excited,” head coach Scott Shafer said. “I know the recruits will be really excited.”Syracuse and Nike collaborated to create the helmet. Shafer said he understands that traditionalists will wonder why the team is spicing things up to such a level.But Shafer said when he looked back at the three-quarter sleeved, stripe-down-the-elbow jerseys from decades ago in the Syracuse Hall of Fame, he noticed how different those jerseys were. He understands the need for some razzle-dazzle heading into the Atlantic Coast Conference.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Times change,” Shafer said. “Whether I love it or not doesn’t matter.”Syracuse defensive back Darius Kelly said Syracuse found out about the new helmets a couple weeks ago. They tried them on for the first time Monday, but didn’t want the news to leak out until game day.“We tried to keep it a little secret,” Kelly said.Syracuse Director of Recruiting Eric White tweeted a picture of the helmets right after the team took the field.Kelly, Clay Cleveland and Ashton Broyld all used different words to describe the helmets. Sweet. Great. Awesome. But the overarching message was the same.They’re a hit.Said Broyld: “I wish I could play in them every day.” Commentslast_img read more
