Key Points: 
  • b'Element 1 Corp., (e1), a leading developer of hydrogen generation technology supporting clean fuel cell power technology, and the Methanol Institute (MI) are jointly organizing a webinar entitled \xe2\x80\x9cThe Methanol Pathway to Hydrogen\xe2\x80\x9d to be held on May 26, 2021, 8.00 a.m. (PDT).
  • The webinar will feature presenters who will discuss methanol\xe2\x80\x99s role as a superior hydrogen carrier supporting the global transition towards cleaner fuels.
  • The lack of efficient storage and transport methods is one of the most significant obstacles to overcome before hydrogen can be widely adopted as an energy product.\nGenerators that produce hydrogen from methanol can deliver on-demand hydrogen at the point of use, eliminating the need to transport compressed hydrogen gas.
  • In addition, this process can be carbon-neutral, and in some cases carbon-negative, when methanol is produced from renewable feedstocks such as captured carbon dioxide or municipal solid waste.\nFor more information about how methanol offers a pathway to hydrogen utilization, register for the webinar here .\nThe Methanol Institute (MI) serves as the global trade association for the methanol industry, representing the world\xe2\x80\x99s leading producers, distributors, and technology companies.

Potomac Edison Receives Approval for Two Battery Energy Storage Projects

Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - 6:30pm

b'WILLIAMSPORT, Md., May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --Potomac Edison, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE), has received approval from the Maryland Public Service Commission for two battery energy storage projects in Allegany and Frederick counties, the latter of which will be paired with a new electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging station.\nPotomac Edison proposed the two projects in response to the state\'s Energy Storage Pilot Program, which was established in 2019 to examine new technologies that could have a transformative impact on electric distribution systems.

  • b'WILLIAMSPORT, Md., May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --Potomac Edison, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE), has received approval from the Maryland Public Service Commission for two battery energy storage projects in Allegany and Frederick counties, the latter of which will be paired with a new electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging station.\nPotomac Edison proposed the two projects in response to the state\'s Energy Storage Pilot Program, which was established in 2019 to examine new technologies that could have a transformative impact on electric distribution systems.
  • The project will be adjacent to a new Potomac Edison electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging station at the Park and Ride Lot, located near the Interstate 270 and Route 80 interchange, and will bundle battery energy storage with EV charging.\nOwned and operated by Potomac Edison, the $1.1 million system will include a 500-kilowatt battery that provides uninterruptable electric vehicle charging and reduces the load drawn from the grid by the charging station during peak demand times.
  • Because fast-charging stations create significant demand on electric distribution grids, the bundling of the storage system with a fast charger will allow Potomac Edison to study how energy storage can help minimize the impact of such demand spikes on its distribution network.\nIn the event of an outage, the Urbana fast-charging station will be able to run off of battery-supplied energy.
