Filling Station of the Future to Deliver Electricity, Hydrogen or Methane

Cars equipped with electric engines or other alternative drives are making major inroads. Scientists at the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) set out to develop a suitable filling station for these vehicles. Launched in mid-February 2018, this project goes to create a fuel 'pump' for the future. This dispenser is to deliver renewable electrical power, hydrogen and methane in the most efficient, cost-effective and purpose-driven way possible. The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is funding this project with around €1.3 million. It will run for five years as part QUARREE 100, an initiative to test an urban quarter's fully renewable power supply.

ib vogt breaks ground on 166,5 MWp solar power in the second round of Egypt’s FiT programme

Project developer, investor and acting EPC contractor ib vogt has begun the construction of a portfolio of three solar power plants with a joint total capacity of 166.5 MWp, awarded under the second round of Egypt’s Feed-in Tariff (FiT) programme. These are the first plants to begin construction in this round. Construction of two of the solar power plants started at the end of January 2018 and building of a third plant will begin at the end of February 2018. The three projects extend over a total area of 270 ha, on which approximately 500,000 solar modules will be mounted on horizontal tracking systems. When the projects are completed in early 2019, over 400,000 MWh of electricity will be produced each year – enough to supply approximately 55,000 homes and save 178,000 t of CO2 emissions annually. Once connected to the grid, the solar power generated by these installations will be supplied to the state-owned Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) on the basis of a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
