China Wants Huge New Green Hydrogen Plant Operational In 2023


China offers promise for clean energy in a world dominated by fossil fuel-driven hydrogen projects through its new green hydrogen mega-plant.

China is planning a huge green hydrogen project using solar and wind power for its Inner Mongolia region. A cluster of plants will be constructed in the cities of Ordos and Baotou, expected to use 1.85 GW of solar power and 370 MW of wind power to produce approximately 66,900 tonnes of green hydrogen every year, according to the Hydrogen Energy Industry Promotion Association.

If used for Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) it would replace the need for as much as 180 million gallons of gasoline a year, which would help China on its way to achieving its aim of 10,000 CVEVs and 74 hydrogen filling stations by 2025 in Beijing alone.

Foreign companies are also eager to support the development of China’s green hydrogen as supermajor Royal Dutch Shell, as Shell China, signs an agreement with Shanghai Electric to develop green hydrogen in the country. Shell and Shanghai are also open to developing carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies to build upon the existing grey hydrogen market.

Shell has already established its reputation for hydrogen production in China after announcing a joint venture with ZJK JT in 2020. The two companies plan to develop a 20-MW hydrogen electrolyzer in the Hebei province to produce green hydrogen from wind and solar power. This hydrogen will power refueling stations in Zhangjiakou, north of Beijing, the host city of the 2022 Winter Olympics. The first phase of the project will see the production of around 3000 metric tonnes of green hydrogen annually.
