The EU's hydrogen strategy explores the potential for renewable hydrogen to help decarbonise the EU in a cost-effective way.


Hydrogen accounts for less than 2% of Europe’s present energy consumption and is primarily used to produce chemical products, such as plastics and fertilisers. 96% of this hydrogen production is through natural gas, resulting in significant amounts of CO2 emissions.

Renewable hydrogen can be obtained via electrolysis using renewable electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. It will play a key role in decarbonising sectors where other alternatives might be unfeasible or more expensive. It can be used to replace fossil-based hydrogen for transport and

Maersk invertirá 10.000 millones en España para desarrollar e-metanol a partir de hidrógeno verde

La Vanguardia


El proyecto supondrá la creación de dos centros de producción en Galicia y Andalucía

Maersk ha elegido España como localización estratégica para desarrollar un proyecto con el que pretende producir su propio carburante verde y colocarse a la vanguardia del reto de la descarbonización que debe abordar el sector marítimo, hasta ahora el más retrasado en esta tendencia.

Maersk es la segunda mayor naviera del mundo, según el ranking de la consultora y analista de datos marítimos Alphaliner. Cuenta con 750 buques, 100.000 empleados 120 países y el 20% de la cuota de mercado en el transporte internacional. La compañía lleva meses trabajando con el Gobierno español para contrastar que España es un emplazamiento estratégico para producir e-metanol.

Oil prices rise for third straight session

NEW YORK, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) --

Oil prices climbed on Thursday, notching a three-day winning streak.

The West Texas Intermediate for December delivery increased 1.17 U.S. dollars, or 1.3 percent, to settle at 89.08 dollars a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude for December delivery added 1.27 dollars, or 1.3 percent, to settle at 96.96 dollars a barrel on the London ICE Futures Exchange.

Prices were partly buoyed by stronger-than-anticipated U.S. macroeconomic data.

The U.S. Commerce Department reported Thursday that the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annualized rate of 2.6 percent in the third quarter, following two straight quarters of contraction. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had forecast a

EU lawmakers call for 2% green marine fuel mandate by 2030





Europe’s lawmakers adopted on Wednesday their position on draft EU rules on the use of renewable and low-carbon fuels in maritime transport (FuelEU Maritime) with a 2% mandate by 2030. 

The European Parliament is pressing the maritime sector to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships by 2% as of 2025, 20% as of 2035 and 80% as of 2050 compared to 2020 level. The European Commission had proposed cuts of 13% by 2035 and 75% by 2050.

This would apply to ships above 5,000 gross tonnage, to all energy used on board in or between EU ports, and to 50% of energy used on voyages where the departure or arrival port is outside of the
