We didn’t expect to bring you alcohol-related hydrogen news again so soon!
The Norwegian island of Myken is now pinning its hopes on hydrogen to make it electrically self-sufficient.
The island is small, with only 10 permanent inhabitants, but has been supplied for 50 years by a 32km undersea cable. The cable is getting old and needs to be replaced. The island needs power for its gin and whisky distillery.
The inhabitants have already ruled out diesel because it is noisy and polluting, and may put off tourists.
Hydrogen looks like a better solution.
It would also be a good test case for 300 similar Norwegian islands, and 10,000 islands worldwide with difficult access and small populations.
