H2 Clipper, the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen to collaborate on advancing the green H2 revolution

H2 Clipper announces a collaboration agreement with the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies, located in Aragon, Spain. The purpose of the agreement is to establish a framework for the feasibility testing of H2 Clipper’s technologies for transporting and distributing H2 worldwide, including the patented Pipeline-In-The-Sky and Pipe-Within-A-Pipe. The agreement was signed on May 16, 2022, by Foundation President Arturo Aliaga Lopez and H2 Clipper Founder and CEO Rinaldo Brutoco during a formal ceremony at the Foundation’s facilities.

With the joint goal of advancing solutions to decarbonize the EU’s extensive natural gas grid, H2 Clipper and the Foundation will work together to:

  • Conduct an independent assessment of the economic viability of H2 Clipper’s proprietary advanced airship, the Pipeline-In-The-Sky, for moving massive amounts of liquid H2 between locations where it is least expensive to generate from renewable resources to locations where consumer demand is the greatest without relying on trucks, rail, ship or conventional air transport.; and
  • Evaluate and test H2 Clipper’s proprietary Pipe-Within-A-Pipe technology for moving significant quantities of pressurized gaseous H2 from centralized cryogenic depots near urban, suburban or metropolitan areas to commercial and residential consumers.

Brutoco said, “We are honored and excited to partner with the Foundation in a mutually beneficial effort to plan, design, construct and validate feasibility of H2 Clipper’s technologies for hydrogen transport and distribution throughout Europe, including through the region’s existing natural gas pipeline network. These technologies have significant implications for the renewable energy future of the EU and for Europe’s ability to become independent of Russian oil.”

Aliaga Lopez said, “The EU has set a binding target to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 45% below 1990 levels by 2030. Green hydrogen produced through renewable-powered electrolysis will be critical for decarbonizing electricity and gas markets. This may be realized by delivering hydrogen through current natural gas pipeline networks utilizing H2 Clipper’s novel Pipe-Within-A-Pipe technology. By collaborating with energy technology companies like H2 Clipper, we are advancing the Foundation’s mission to significantly reduce fossil fuel usage.”
