I'll Be Back: Germany is a Submarine Power, Again. "The secret sauce in the new generation of German subs is the use of hydrogen fuel cells for power, which allows subs to operate nearly silently for weeks at a time without using expensive nuclear reactors." by Chop_Chop in Hydrogen
Germany's use of hydrogen fuel cells in submarines, such as the Type 212A, demonstrates its commitment to efficient and stealthy littoral operations. This technology offers prolonged underwater endurance, critical for modern naval missions.
Off-grid construction site taps into hydrogen fuel cell tech to power operations. "This project shows that zero emission power generation has reached a point where it can viably replace off grid diesel generation and remove these health risks to the benefit of all." by Chop_Chop in Hydrogen
Utilizing hydrogen fuel cell technology for off-grid construction sites is a significant step toward reducing emissions and health risks associated with diesel generators. This sustainable approach not only benefits the environment but also improves the overall well-being of those working in such areas. A promising development indeed!

How Solar Is Central To The Energy Transition by Chop_Chop in Solar
Solar energy's growth is driven by economics more than environmental concerns. Solar costs have declined by 90% this century, mainly in the last decade. In 2021, solar became cheaper than any other technology in 16 US states without subsidies. Wood Mackenzie's Ravi Manghani predicts another 15% to 25% cost reduction over the next decade due to technological innovations. Solar will dominate new power capacity additions, with up to 8,000 GW expected by 2050, making it competitive in most power markets by 2030 and pushing thermal generation out of the market.
