The US Department of Energy (DOE) will provide $20 million funding for a demonstration project at Palo Verde nuclear power station in Arizona to produce hydrogen.
The benefits of quantum computing in combatting climate change are clear and compelling. Quantum computing could solve many of the problems facing technologies such as batteries, electrolysers and carbon capture and storage.

Jera, Japan’s largest power company, plans to launch a pilot project backed by the government to displace 30 per cent of the LNG used to generate electricity with hydrogen at a selected power plant.
Entergy Texas has announced that it will submit plans to regulators for a 1215 MW power plant that can use natural gas and hydrogen.
The southern coast of Western Australia has been proposed as the site for the world’s biggest renewable energy hub.
Shell has started a new electrolyser at its Energy and Chemicals Park in Rheinland, Germany.
The IPP eRex has announced that it will build Japan’s first commercial hydrogen power plant in 2022 to produce around 360 kW.
Governments’ decarbonisation policies and long-term emissions targets are strengthening the case for low-carbon hydrogen – yet the cost of renewables-based production will need to fall significantly before it can become a viable alternative.
