A Note from H2scan CEO Dave Meyers

On October 18, 2023, the White House and the US Department of Energy announced $3.46 billion for 58 Grid Resilience and Innovation Partnerships (GRIP) projects across 44 states to strengthen electric grid resilience and reliability, as part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda.

H2scan is proud to support a GRIP project that incorporates real time hydrogen measurement, to help lower the frequency and duration of power outages. The solution will also help protect the life of transformer assets by providing timely conditioned-based maintenance information. This award demonstrates how our sensing solutions can provide utilities OPEX and CAPEX savings.

At H2scan, our history of pioneering advanced sensing solutions has consistently set industry benchmarks. The GRIP project is the latest example of how we’re leading the charge in grid resilience and reliability, leveraging real-time hydrogen measurement to safeguard infrastructure.

Please contact us at [email protected] to see how our proven technology can be integrated into your grid systems, reducing outages and extending asset life while delivering operational and capital savings.

H2scan's HY-ALERTA 5021 and HyView Products: Keeping Battery Rooms Safe

Battery room operations are made safer when using H2scan’s HY-ALERTA 5021 solid-state area hydrogen monitor in conjunction with its HyView explosion-proof process meter display. This combination of products protects battery rooms from explosive hydrogen build up and is maintenance free for more than 10 years.

The HY-ALERTA 5021 is capable of detecting low levels of hydrogen even in the presence of other gases that can cause false alarms with other sensor technologies. It is ideal for battery backup storage rooms used in data centers, utilities, telecommunications, and other end users.

The HY-ALERTA 5021 pairs with H2scan’s HyView product, a rugged display that comes in both an explosion-proof model and a National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA)-certified model. HyView can consolidate data from multiple hydrogen sensors to safely display hydrogen levels outside of the battery area.

This past month, H2scan exhibited at the NiBS Battery Conference in the UK and showcased the HY-ALERTA and HyView to conference attendees. H2scan’s Sales Director of Safety Products Jeff Donato said he “had a wonderful show and enjoyed connecting with industry experts on how H2scan could help ensure the safety of their operations.”

Hydrogen Tomorrow News

The Midwestern clean hydrogen economy: Potential for community- and climate-beneficial industry decarbonization:

Low-carbon hydrogen is a critical component of the climate mitigation solution set, especially as an input to other products for these hard-to-abate industries and as a zero-carbon fuel replacement for current liquid fuels.

Northwestern University is part of national effort to develop hydrogen fuel economy

Plan is to produce hydrogen by leveraging diverse and abundant energy sources, including renewable energy, natural gas and low-cost nuclear energy.

The GHA report shows hydrogen can reduce CO2 & boost economy

A UK organization called the Green Hydrogen Alliance has released a report showing how the use of green hydrogen can result in £11bn in economic benefits & 1.7 million tons in CO2 reduction. They  say the benefits could be achieved by building just three 300MW production facilities in high demand areas.

Upcoming Tradeshows

The 16th China Online Analytical Instrument Application and Development Expo will carry out academic exchanges and display activities around the theme of “efficiency, high quality, low consumption, safety and environmental protection.” Participants will include technical personnel and managers from the petroleum, chemical, environmental protection, mining, medicine, metallurgy, electric power, steel, food, and other industries. The event takes place in Qingdao, China on November 29 – December 1, 2023.
