GLASGOW, UNITED KINGDOM, March 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hy-Hybrid Energy– Scotland (Glasgow) based fuel cell services provider is one of the few companies providing services in all major fuel cell types. Dr. Naveed Akhtar, CEO, Hy-Hybrid Energy brings more than 20 years of experience in hydrogen energy/fuel cells. Dr. Akhtar has worked on four (PEMFC, AFC, DMFC, SOFC) out of the six major fuel cell types at world renowned organizations in Pakistan, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Canada, Japan and the UK.

Hy-Hybrid Energy is leading the first of its kind in Hungary, the fuel cell bus development project which also includes battery electric buses development. The Company is also proud to be the world's first in setting-up a platform (International Hydrogen Aviation Conference, IHAC) which gathers leading experts from the aviation sector, discussing the role of hydrogen in decarbonisation, annually. Other ongoing projects include low and high temperature fuel cell systems development for transport, back-up and off-grid applications.

In March 2019, Dr. Akhtar has been contacted for supporting a German OEM's project for the technology development in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells. Dr. Akhtar's extensive background in high-temperature solid-oxide fuel cells while working at German Aerospace Center, Stuttgart and The Centre for Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Research at the University of Birmingham was the perfect match for the German Partner to work with Hy-Hybrid Energy. Dr. Akhtar's PhD (on the topic of single-chamber, micro-tubular, solid oxide fuel cells) has the honour to be the first modelling and experimental studies ever published.

In August 2019, Hy-Hybrid Energy entered into a joint agreement with GOLDI Mobility Kft- a Hungarian based manufacturing Company for the development and assembly of fuel cell electric drivetrain for their next generation buses. In this project, Hy-Hybrid Energy is providing services related to the selection and testing of complete electric drivetrain including, fuel cell stack, battery/supercapacitor, electric motor, inverter, hydrogen cylinders, air & cooling supply system, DC-DC converter and energy management control. Later in 2020, this program was further extended to include battery electric buses, hence now setting-up a zero-emission buses (ZEBs) manufacturing facility in Hungary.

In late 2020, Dr. Akhtar has been invited to support a study related to the use of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells for an aviation project. The study includes the use of gas turbine, battery and fuel cells as a hybrid drivetrain and selects the most appropriate energy source during climb, cruise & descend phases of the flight while optimising the overall efficiency of the drivetrain.

"These projects clearly demonstrate that both low and high temperature fuel cell technology have a place in the automotive sector, it is very important to select the right one with respect to particular application and scale size." commented Dr. Akhtar.

Bay Area Solar Company Celebrates Women’s Contributions to Solar Energy During International Women's Month

The job opportunities are abundant in solar energy, women just don’t always sign up.”

— Julia Bombardier

PETALUMA, CA, USA, March 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Simply Solar, a local Bay Area solar energy company is dedicated to celebrating women in Renewable Energy for Women’s History Month. According to IRENA women only make up 32% of the labor force in renewables.

The senior sales rep at the company, Julia Bombardier said “The job opportunities are abundant in solar energy, women just don’t always sign up.”

With the recent transition of leadership in the US, and the introduction of the First Woman of Color to lead the country as Vice President, the focus on gender diversity is more likely to be realized across all industries, including the energy sector.

Simply Solar is dedicating resources to the future diverse growth of the energy sector. Starting at the high-school level, the company has focused on future education, working with a local non-profit to distribute scholarships to students interested in STEM, without gender bias.

The energy industry employs millions worldwide, and for many female leaders in the workforce, structural inequality can play a significant barrier to entry. Simply Solar, along with many other solar companies, are working to break that cultural bias. Past years events like the Northern California wildfires, a global pandemic, and frozen power outages in Texas have made apparent that the climate crisis is not going to lessen. This is an all-hands-on-deck situation.

The actions of women will continue to advance renewable energy solutions, and Simply Solar will continue as a leader in its dedication to the growth of employee expertise.

“When I enter a meeting, there is always a moment where I feel like my customer is looking for a male counterpart to be coming along behind me.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA , USA, March 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The California US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer anywhere in California please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-if your loved one had significant exposure to asbestos in the service. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to identify is probably older than 60 years old and their asbestos exposure occurred in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s onboard a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard.

"The $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for Navy Veterans and people who have lung cancer and who had significant exposure to asbestos in the service or at work prior to 1982. Most Navy Veterans or people we talk to are almost always stunned to learn they might qualify for significant financial compensation. If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad-please call attorney Erik Karst at the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible compensation. We think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Hydrogen as a fuel

Coriolis Mass Flowmeter for Hydrogen TMU-W

An open road ahead for the fuel cell: The first high-precision mass flow meter for hydrogen filling stations certified to international standard OIML R 139 2018

PUCHONG, SELANGOR, MALAYSIA, March 5, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On the road to climate-friendlier mobility, hydrogen is gaining importance as an energy source for fuel cells. However, fueling of hydrogen is more complex than fueling of gasoline and diesel. Unlike other gases, hydrogen heats up as it expands, causing pressure and temperature changes during fuelling that need to be precisely monitored. Therefore, Heinrichs Messtechnik GmbH has developed the TMU-W 004 mass flow meter, which ensures precise metering despite pressure and temperature fluctuations. The device is the first of its kind certified to international standard OIML R 139 2018 and thus approved for hydrogen filling stations. A robust, slender housing protects specially arranged sensors and measuring loops that use the Coriolis effect and enable very precise flow measurement. The attached transducer converts the sensor signals into a reading that can be used to further analyse the flow rate. At the same time the meter measures the temperature of the medium. The TMU-W 004 is suitable for high-pressure applications up to 1000 bar. This newly developed device is already in use at filling stations of the listed company Nel Hydrogen.

Hydrogen as a fuel is gaining ground in Germany, in part due to the stimulus packages passed by the government. Currently Germany has the most public hydrogen filling stations in Europe, according to Statista. Worldwide, Germany is in second place after Japan. “For passenger cars, fueling the hydrogen is typically done at 700 bar. This high pressure is necessary to generate the energy density needed for useful ranges,” explains Guido Thometzki, CEO of Heinrichs Messtechnik GmbH. “During this process the temperature must not exceed +85 °C, since otherwise the tank lining can be compromised.” Since the tank expands and heats up during filling, the hydrogen is cooled before it gets to the tank. This high-pressure environment combined with the small size of the hydrogen molecule makes special demands on the accuracy of flow monitoring.

Therefore, Heinrichs Messtechnik GmbH optimized its proven Coriolis Mass Flow Meter for such high-pressure applications, and now offers the TMU-W 004, a version of the new TMU-W series specially designed for handling hydrogen. The meter ensures that during filling, the amount of hydrogen transferred to the vehicle tank is measured accurately. This enables correct billing of the amount filled, which is a prerequisite for fuelling at public hydrogen filling stations. It covers a measurement range of 0.133 kg/min H2 to 4 kg/min H2. Thanks to structure and fluid simulations performed during the development phase, it was possible to achieve the optimum arrangement and dimensions of all the mechanical and electromechanical components. As a result, the device is the world’s first and thus far the only flow meter to obtain certification to international standard OIML R 139 2018, which covers measurement systems for compressed gaseous fuels in vehicles. The listed Norwegian company Nel Hydrogen is already using the TMU-W 004 successfully at its filling stations.

Special arrangement of sensors gives precise results

For the meter to fit into Nel’s narrow fuel dispensers, it was designed substantially narrower than its predecessor models. Inside the compact and deformation-resistant housing are two U-shaped measuring tubes arranged in parallel. „An exciter system causes the measuring tubes to vibrate at their natural frequency. As the medium flows through these tubes, the Coriolis effect causes additional phase-shifted deviations of the tubes,” explains Thometzki. “Sensors positioned at the optimum points on the measuring tubes pick up these phase-shifted deviations and send them as signals to the transducer (also called the transmitter) for further analysis. From them, the current mass flow is calculated.” The special device architecture – that is, the shape of the measuring tubes and the ideal positioning of the sensors on the tubes – along with the further harmonizing of the other components such as the gusset plates, make this a particularly sensitive and accurate meter, despite the thick walls of the measuring tubes. This robustness on the part of the measuring tubes is necessary in order to withstand the high 1000 bar pressure (the test pressure is actually 1500 bar). The tough, fully welded housing with corrugations for added stiffness gives ample protection for the sensitive measurement equipment within.

The flow amount can be evaluated using the pulse or status output of the transducer. „The user also gets information on the temperature of the flow, and optionally the density as well. This can be used to control the compressor pumping the hydrogen, for example switching to a higher volume or conversely interrupting pumping,” adds Thometzki. The transducer has a two-line LCD display that shows the values directly. The unit is easy to configure using the four keys provided on it. Among other functions, the user can define outputs and do fault analysis with the keys. The transducer can be set up as a round version or installed in a switchgear cabinet as a rack version. Both the TMU-W 004 housing and the field housing of the transducer are pressure-resistant and intrinsically safe, which helps prevent fire or explosion in case gas escapes.

Simulations and flow measurements ensure measurement precision

In the development, manufacture and calibration of its meters, Heinrichs Messtechnik GmbH makes use of many simulation and optimization methods to ensure the precision and reliability of its devices under all conceivable conditions. “Devices for handling high-pressure gases like hydrogen, such as the new TMU-W 004 for hydrogen filling stations, naturally cannot be an exception,” explains Thometzki. “On the contrary, in the development of the TMU-W 004 in particular we used specially developed high-precision simulation methods for the flow and structural design, like FEM (finite element method), CFD (computational fluid dynamics), and FSI (fluid structure interaction).” Only in this way was it possible in the TMU-W 004 to meet the seemingly contradictory requirements of the highest measurement precision and extreme reliability in handling high-pressure gases. The measurement precision also had to remain high despite pressure and temperature fluctuations during filling.

The new VOLTstack 20k by 60kWh will change the clean energy industry

VOLTstack 20k e-Generator

Here’s your first look at the future of cleantech/mobile power

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, March 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Portable Electric Ltd., a Vancouver-based technology company and manufacturer of the VOLTstack e-Generator, a clean energy alternative to traditional gas and diesel generators, unveils the latest iteration of its most powerful, Canadian-made electric generator to date – the VOLTstack 20k. The newest member of the VOLTstack lineup will allow the power station ecosystem to supply silent, clean power to a variety of industries like never before.

The COVID-19 setback helped the environment so much so that it forced many private and public institutions to re-evaluate their sustainability goals. Today, many organizations are coming back greener than ever. Part of that movement is reducing GHG emissions through the use of alternative energy sources. Fossil fuel-powered portable generators, which are often overlooked, are a significant source of GHG emissions and progress has been limited until now.

The VOLTstack 20k is capable of reducing the presence of gas and diesel generators at construction sites, film productions, and homes where power shutoff events can be fatal. Like its predecessor, the all-new 20k will continue to provide clean, continuous backup power for days. The new VOLTstack 20k electric generators are all-weather output rated and feature an app-enabled wireless monitoring platform for real-time data, analytics, and GPS. Each 20k power station will also feature a 7-inch wireless LCD touch screen that will display state of charge, power in/out and operating and charging times. Perhaps the greatest feat of the brand new VOLTstack 20k units is that they can be charged almost twice as fast as their predecessor while weighing 25 percent lighter.

“Thanks to our lean product development, deep market and customer knowledge, and efficient manufacturing, our VOLTstack e-Generators have paved the way to solve real-world power needs,” Mark Rabin, CEO & Founder of Portable Electric. “With our VOLTstack 20k units arriving in the United States in a matter of days, we’re reaching out to a larger audience and helping more people make the switch from toxic gas and diesel generators to clean portable power. This is just the start. 2021 will see Portable Electric’s innovations reach further than ever before.”

The VOLTstack 20k has already earned rave reviews within the film and utility industry for its versatility and application. Through the VOLTstack 20k, Portable Electric will continue to work with major companies including Waste Management, Disney, PG&E and Netflix to reduce the use of gas and electric generators.

Oncor Electric Delivery Faces Wrongful Death Lawsuit Over Blackout Preparation, Response

Lawsuit: Central Texas man endured deadly cold temperatures, had hypothermia, severe frostbite when found unresponsive in his home

We filed this lawsuit because Oncor failed to do its job. Because of these failings, good people like Elzie Ford were forced into a life-and-death struggle for survival.”

— Trial Lawyer Bryan Fears

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — North Texas electricity provider Oncor Electric Delivery has been hit with a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the son of a Hill County man who died after losing electricity and heat, and enduring single-digit temperatures in his Whitney home during the winter storm blackout.

Elzie D. Ford, 68, died on Feb. 20, one day after he was found unresponsive and rushed by helicopter ambulance to a Waco hospital.

In what is believed to be the first such wrongful death lawsuit filed in Dallas County, the lawsuit filed by Mr. Ford’s son, Larry Ford, charges that Dallas-based Oncor failed to heed findings of investigations of similar winter blackouts in 1989 and 2011 and did not prepare for the predicted spike in electricity demand or manage the power supply once the blackout began.

“We filed this lawsuit because Oncor failed to do its job,” said trial lawyer and Fears Nachawati co-founder Bryan Fears. “Because of these failings, good people like Elzie Ford were forced into a life-and-death struggle for survival.”

According to the lawsuit filed by Fears Nachawati Law Firm, Watts Guerra LLP, and Parker Waichman LLP, Mr. Ford had no electricity or heat beginning Feb. 14, and temperatures in Whitney reportedly dropped to as low as 1 degree. With the roads impassable, Larry Ford was unable to check on his father until Feb. 19. The elder Mr. Ford was found unresponsive and died the following day at the hospital, where authorities confirmed he had hypothermia, severe frostbite and brain damage.

“For these companies, saving a nickel by cutting corners on preparation was more valuable than the potential for property damage and deaths. It was a calculated risk they made as this storm approached and they chose not to take the most basic steps to prepare,” said Fears Nachawati trial lawyer Patrick Luff. “These companies did not consider the value of preventing suffering and loss of life, so it’s now up to a jury to do that for them.”

“The storm and the power demands it created were not a surprise,” said trial lawyer and Parker Waichman co-founder Jerrold Parker. “Texas has had bad winter weather before and, in fact, there were accurate warnings for days that this weather system was on the way. This was a failure to prepare.”

“This is one of the byproducts of an electrical system that has been deregulated to the point that any oversight is ultimately toothless,” said trial lawyer and Watts Guerra co-founder Mikal Watts. “Companies like Oncor are willing to place profit over human life because they have learned that regulators will not hold them accountable. We are filing this lawsuit to make certain something like this does not happen again.”

The lawsuit is Larry Ford et al. v Oncor Electric Delivery, no. DC-21-02693, 95th District Court, Dallas County, Texas.

Watts Guerra, Fears Nachawati and Parker Waichman have represented clients in injury lawsuits for decades.

“We have a 40+ year history of solid product delivery of our utility solutions in the United States out of our Atlanta office. We have witnessed the US utility market make greater investments in distribution automation and management on the energy side and adopt AMI technology in the water industry. The move to embrace cloud technology after experiencing the insecurity and threats of on-premise systems makes this the right time for us to expand that product portfolio by bringing our CIS platform, Onesait Customers, that has already overcome these challenges in other countries, to the US,” states Leo Benitez, Global EVP of Energy and Utilities for Minsait, an Indra company.

Benitez continued, “Minsait ACS’s customer solutions are modular and allow a utility to grow. In a way, we are offering to utilities what they are offering their customers: The ability to get what they need when they need it at their preference. We grow with what utilities need at the time they need them.”

The underlying architecture is also a key differentiator as today’s utilities are extremely interdependent. Minsait’s Onesait Customers is a cloud-based application that can be licensed or operated in a SaaS model. It is modular, with plenty of APIs to allow for easy integration with third-party vendors.

Ready to Co-Innovate

Minsait ACS’s model has been based on a ‘Global View with Local Flavor’ and we use that approach in our project delivery. The regional project teams are knowledgeable about the market and ready to participate in client implementations to insure efficiency, rigor, and quality. A project is not just about technology. We view domain knowledge and functional expertise, along with the ability to move in an agile manner, as important as selecting the right solution.

“Why now? Because utilities need safety and security, and old code will not cut it; and because customer engagement is far more than just self-service applications. Our experience and software can respond to the forecasted needs of utilities with managing programs and moving into a world where data will have to be used for more than field activity,” points out Kevin Sullivan, CEO at Minsait ACS.

“Minsait has done this around the world. Now it is time to bring that experience to the United States,” says Sullivan.
