Fraunhofer Targets Hydrogen Adoption With Improved Electrolysis System Efficiency

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

This is the first paragraph.

The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) has announced that it is taking part in a new research project meant to accelerate hydrogen adoption. Its main focus is to examine water electrolysis in order to achieve improve efficiency.

The research project is called InnoEly, and this appears to be the project’s aim, as stated on the web site.

Modeling and characterization tools for the development of water electrolysers – from materials to system integration

This could be a project, that brings about a big improvement in the efficiency of electrolysers.

Purfleet Station – 19th August 2021

According to this article on Ian Visits, Purfleet station is going to be transformed and renamed Purfleet-on-Thames station.

  • The station will be moved Northwards
  • 2850 homes will be built in the local area.
  • The current level crossing will be replaced by a bridge.

So I went to the station, took a look and took these pictures.

Note.

  1. The level crossing is at the Southern end of the station.
  2. Whilst I was there, I didn’t see anybody use the footbridge.
  3. Everybody used the level crossing.
  4. The bus stops could be better placed.

But the station building and the platforms weren’t in the worst of conditions.

This Google Map shows Purfleet station.

Note.

  1. It would appear that the only building in the way of moving the road to the North would be the station ticket office.
  2. As my pictures show the platforms are long and could probably be extended at the Northern end.

The article on Ian Visits has a good map of the area, showing the development and the new road layout.

It would be good if building bridges to replace level crossings was always as easy as this.
