Scotland earmarks £100 million for green hydrogen development efforts

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The National:The Scottish government is to commit £100 million to developing hydrogen as a greener form of power. Industry bosses said Scotland had the opportunity to be a “leading hydrogen nation” – with ministers pledging to invest the cash over five years.The funding was announced as ministers set the target of Scotland producing 5GW (gigawatts) of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen by 2030 – enough to power the equivalent of 1.8 million homes. This could then be increased to “at least 25GW by 2045”, according to a new Scottish Government policy paper.Ministers will set out more detail about how this could be achieved in a hydrogen action plan, to be published next year. The UK government will also produce its own hydrogen strategy in 2021, with ministers there having similarly set the target of 5GW of low-carbon hydrogen by 2030.Ahead of next year’s action plan, the Scottish government published a policy statement setting out how developing hydrogen capacity could help with both meeting emission reductions targets and in “generating new economic opportunities in Scotland”.Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse said Scotland was the first country in the UK to publish a hydrogen policy statement that “sets out how we can make the most of Scotland’s massive potential in this new sector.“Indeed, Scotland is one of the best-placed nations anywhere in the world to develop competitively priced hydrogen for our own economy’s needs and to generate a surplus in supply to export to other European nations with emerging demand but insufficient supply to meet their own needs.”[Richard Mason]More: Scottish government pledges £100m to help develop hydrogen power Scotland earmarks £100 million for green hydrogen development effortslast_img read more

WHO says large SARS outbreak unlikely this winter

first_imgNov 30, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) top official in the western Pacific said yesterday that SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) cases may return this winter but probably not in large numbers.”I don’t think a large outbreak is likely,” Dr. Shigeru Omi, director of the WHO’s Western Pacific Regional Office, said in a speech in Hong Kong. Omi was quoted in a WHO news release.Omi said Asia is much better prepared for infectious diseases than it was a year ago. But he added that the SARS virus is almost certainly still circulating in animals in southern China and will continue to be a threat as long as it is present.Omi praised Hong Kong for its handling of the large SARS outbreak there in 2003. Saying the world owes the city a large debt, he added, “What was learned here was passed on to health authorities around the world. That way the global community benefited from Hong Kong’s skills and hard work.”He also said the threat of an influenza pandemic with possible “catastrophic consequences” has displaced SARS as the WHO’s main concern. Because of the risk that the avian influenza virus circulating in poultry in Asia will evolve into a form that could easily spread among people, he said, “We believe that the world is closer now than at any time in recent years to an influenza pandemic.”Only a handful of SARS cases occurred last winter and spring, including four in southern China’s Guangdong province in January and nine more in Beijing and the Anhui province of China in April. The WHO counted 8,096 cases worldwide, 774 of them fatal, in the initial SARS outbreaks from November 2002 through July 2003.last_img read more
