Hydrogen seen as green way forward

Global energy giant Royal Dutch Shell is also betting big on China’s hydrogen development while further involving itself in the country’s hydrogen projects after it unveiled its first commercial hydrogen project in China in November, which includes a 20-megawatt electrolyzer that will produce hydrogen and supply refueling stations in Zhangjiakou, one of the co-hosts of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

According to Huibert Vigeveno, the company’s downstream sector director, Shell sees more potential in the hydrogen industry in China and will support the country in developing hydrogen over the long term.

Only hydrogen can meet demand from heavy-haul transportation over the long run, although the midterm resolution is still LNG, Vigeveno said.

Wan Gang, vice-chairman of China’s top political advisory body, recently said pure electric vehicles and fuel-cell powered automobiles are equally important in the country’s new energy vehicle development strategy and will coexist going forward.

Vigeveno said Royal Dutch Shell has more than 50 hydrogen refueling stations worldwide in countries including Germany, the Netherlands and Great Britain, and could apply its experiences in China.
