H2 View is today celebrating our one-year anniversary. In our first year alone, we have published more than 1,600 articles, and in celebration of our birthday, we’ve rounded up 10 of our biggest stories from our first year.
- Worcester Bosch officially reveals new hydrogen boiler
In our most read story, H2 View unveiled the first pictures of Worcester Bosch’s new and unique hydrogen-powered boiler prototype in February.
The prototype has been designed to also run effectively on natural gas which means in the future if hydrogen gas becomes a reality, those who have a “hydrogen-ready” boiler can simply convert to hydrogen without the need for an entirely new heating system.
- “World’s largest” renewable hydrogen factory starts fit out
UK energy storage and clean fuel company ITM Power announced in January that the fit out of its new 1GW factory in Sheffield was imminent.
The new factory will enable ITM Power, through standardisation, modularisation and the employment of world class practices, to reach a capacity of 1GW within three years.

At the end of February, H2 View travelled to Worcester Bosch’s headquarters in Worcester to meet with Martyn Bridges, Director of Technical Communication & Product Management, and see the “hydrogen-ready” boiler for ourselves.
“We need to convince [the government] that this works, it’s feasible, it’s a very sensible thing to do and it’s financially the cheapest of the very few options on the table for decarbonising the country,” Bridges told H2 View.

In an exclusive interview, Proton Technologies told H2 View $0.10 per kg is what the Canadian company was trying to achieve with its new process, which has potential to produce the world’s lowest-cost hydrogen.
- Bosch opens hydrogen-compatible fuel cell pilot plant
Earlier in July, Bosch opened a fuel cell pilot plant in Wernau, Germany based on Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology.
The system consists of three fuel cell devices for stationary applications that supplement the existing power supply of the plant in Wernau in a way that saves CO2 and drives further development of these decentralised energy systems.
- First look at Hyundai Hydrogen Mobility truck
In September 2019, H2 View brought you the first look at the fuel cell electric truck set to revolutionise the green hydrogen mobility ecosystem in Switzerland.
