Solar Thermal

The Solar Thermal concept to produce energy, not to be confused with the Solar Photovoltaic, is the conversion of sunlight heat into electricity.

The thermodynamic principle at the heart of Solar Thermal facilities is the same across the different types of plant:

Sunlight rays are concentrated to heat fluid containers

High temperature fluid then supplies steam generators

Steam produced drives turbines which generate electricity

Solar Photovoltaic

The Solar Photovoltaic concept for energy is the conversion of natural and artificial lights into electricity.
The photon, which is the energy vector contained in light rays, while hitting on the solar panel will produce what is called the Photovoltaic effect, a mix of heat and electronic stimulation.
This electronic stimulation will generate a movement of electrons in the solar cell and thus induce direct current electricity.

Green Hydrogen

The Green Hydrogen, not to be confused with the Grey Hydrogen and the Blue Hydrogen, is the production of Hydrogen from water (H20) splitting.
The Green Hydrogen production is based on the water Electrolysis. Meaning, the electricity injected in the liquid is going to separate the water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen.

Blue Hydrogen

Blue Hydrogen, not to be confused with Grey Hydrogen and Green Hydrogen, is an hybrid concept targeting to decarbonize today hydrogen production.
The concept of what is called Blue Hydrogen is a combination of a Grey Hydrogen plant with a facility of Carbon Capture.

Grey Hydrogen

The Grey Hydrogen, to differentiate from blue and green ones, is today the most popular process to produce hydrogen worldwide.
This method of production is based on the fracking of methane, in combinaison with steam to produce hydrogen.

Offshore Rare-Earth in Japan: Oil & Gas Game Changer

Back in April, Japan published a report announcing the discovery of huge reserves of rare earth close to the Minamitori Island, 1800km away from Tokyo. Scientists discovered 16 million tons of rare earth elements encapsulated in mud 6000 meters underwater, enough to supply the national electronic industry and the world consumption for at least 400 years.
