China's first heavy-load railway hydrogen station now operational

CGTN | 03-Jun-2024

China's first heavy-load refueling station for hydrogen-powered railways began commercial operation in Ordos, a prefecture-level city in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, on June 2.

The station caters to heavy-duty hydrogen-powered shunting locomotives and catenary vehicles supported by hydrogen fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries. It is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 800 tonnes per year...

While some talk about H2 colors and "efficiency", the country that built the biggest High Speed rail network in the world (in ~15 YEARS) builds the hardware for the future of energy. It would be funny if it wasn't so GD sad. After all, war & hegemony are much much more important - to those stuck in 1945.
