EXCLUSIVE | World’s largest green hydrogen project ‘has major problems due to its Chinese electrolysers’: BNEF
The world’s largest green hydrogen project — Sinopec’s 260MW Kuqa facility in Xinjiang, northwest China — has been operating at less than a third of its installed capacity due to various factors, including some missing safety features in the system design and lower-than-promised efficiencies, research house BloombergNEF (BNEF) tells Hydrogen Insight.
The alkaline electrolysers — supplied by three different Chinese manufacturers: Cockerill Jingli (120MW), Longi (80MW) and Peric (60MW) — each have their own technical issues, but all have one common problem related to their flexibility, according to BNEF analyst Xiaoting Wang.

Japan to offer CfD-style subsidies for domestic and imported hydrogen next year — with strict conditions
BYLINE: Hydrogen Insight
The Japanese government is planning to launch a subsidy scheme to cover the cost gap between low-carbon hydrogen (as well as its derivatives) and fossil equivalents next year, with strings attached on whether the project can operate without support afterwards, according to a government committee report.
This will allow producers to sell clean hydrogen at the same price as fossil alternatives, regardless of market fluctuations, increasing the likelihood that offtakers will commit to buying volumes and thereby providing financial certainty for investors.
