BP and Daimler to work on transitioning trucks to hydrogen fuel
BP and Daimler plan to work jointly on speeding up the transition of truck transport to hydrogen fuel as well as the development of a network of hydrogen fuelling stations in Britain.

    Under the terms of a memorandum of understanding, BP is to assess the feasibility of designing, constructing, operating and supplying a network of up to 25 hydrogen refuelling stations across Britain by 2030. These stations would be supplied by BP with “green” hydrogen – generated from water using renewable energy sources.

   Daimler Truck expects to deliver hydrogen-powered fuel-cell trucks to its customers in Britain from 2025. It has expressed a preference for liquid hydrogen, which has a far higher energy density in relation to volume than gaseous hydrogen.

    The tanks of a fuel-cell truck using liquid hydrogen are therefore much smaller and, due to the lower pressure, significantly lighter. This gives the trucks more cargo space and a higher payload. It also means more hydrogen can be carried, which significantly increases the trucks’ range.

    BP intends to develop hydrogen refuelling stations in Europe and already has plans for stations in Germany.

    In Teesside, in northeastern England, BP has plans to build a hydrogen-producing facility which could produce 1GW of blue hydrogen, produced from natural gas, a facility to be integrated with carbon capture and storage.

Fuel cell aircraft

Australian air carrier Skytrans and startup Stralis Aircraft have announced their intention to launch a hydrogen fuel cell plane by 2026. The companies plan retrofitting of a 19-seat Beechcraft 1900D airliner operating in Queensland, northeast Australia. A new hydrogen-electric propulsion system and a liquid hydrogen storage tank will replace a turbofan engine and a kerosene fuel system.

Seven trends in global energy markets

China has replaced Japan as the world’s largest importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG), according to a new annual review of global energy by BP. China increased its LNG imports by 17% (to 109.5 bcm in regasified form) in 2021, while Japan decreased it by 0.1%, to 101.3 bcm. This allowed China to come out on top globally.
