NEOM to build the world’s largest hydrogen plant, powered by solar and wind

NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) announced signing of facility agreements with local, regional and international banks along with execution of a commitment letter with the Saudi Industrial Development Fund (SIDF) for the construction of the world’s largest green hydrogen plant.

This NEOM-based mega plant will integrate up to 4 GW of solar and wind energy to power the production of up to 1.2 million tonnes of green ammonia yearly, translating to around 600 tonnes of carbon-free hydrogen per day. Upon completion by 2026, the entire production of green hydrogen will be supplied for global export in the form of ammonia through an exclusive long-term agreement with Air Products.

Solar panel breakthrough could lead to cheaper renewable energy

Using enhanced halide perovskite – a man-made material with repeating crystals shaped like cubes – in place of silicon could produce less expensive devices that stand up better to light and heat, according to researchers led by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

One way to lower the cost of production would be to develop solar cells that use less-expensive materials than today’s silicon-based models, the researchers claim. To achieve that, some engineers have zeroed in on halide perovskite, a type of human-made material with repeating crystals shaped like cubes.

In theory, perovskite-based solar cells could be made with raw materials that cost less and are more readily available than silicon; they also could be produced using less energy and a simpler manufacturing process.
