How Hydrogen will power the green construction revolution

How Hydrogen will power the green construction revolution

According to the International Energy Agency buildings operations and construction emissions account for more than one-third of global energy-related emissions, significantly contributing to environmental degradation, with heavy machinery and standby power solutions relying heavily on fossil fuels.

Yet here at Ryze we know the industry stands on the brink of a green revolution, as clean energy solutions lead the charge towards decarbonisation.

In the very near future, hydrogen is set to revolutionise construction sites by powering large, heavy machinery, complementing the smaller electric machines already in use, as exemplified by JCB’s zero-emissions electric range already on sale and in operation.

Together, hydrogen and electrification technologies form a comprehensive approach to zero-emission construction practices.

Hydrogen-powered machinery, such as JCB’s pioneering hydrogen diggers currently being tested, represent a giant leap forwards.

Ryze is ahead of the curve, offering both H2 supply and BE charging solutions, ready to enable the industry with its dual shift to sustainability.

Hydrogen-powered machinery, such as JCB’s pioneering hydrogen diggers currently being tested, represent a giant leap forwards.

These machines eliminate the need for extensive downtime as they refuel in close to the same time as their diesel equivalents. Mobile hydrogen refuelling technologies also do away with the logistical challenges of laying extensive cabling across construction sites. The result could prove to be a seamless transition to green technology without compromising on efficiency or productivity.

Hydrogen can provide innovative and efficient solutions not just for heavy machinery but also power storage and supply, making it a sustainable alternative game-changer for the construction industry.

For example, hydrogen generators can supply clean, reliable standby power for construction sites, further reducing the industry’s reliance on carbon-intensive energy sources. This dual capability positions hydrogen as a versatile and practical solution for the construction industry’s energy needs.

The benefits of hydrogen are not merely operational but also profoundly environmental. By switching to hydrogen-powered solutions alongside continued electrification, the construction industry can significantly reduce its carbon emissions.

Zero-carbon hydrogen power vehicles only emit water vapour, and they can cover the same distance and take the same time to refuel as a diesel equivalent.

Hydrogen technology is no longer a distant promise; it is becoming a present-day reality. With Ryze delivering hydrogen and hydrogen infrastructure, alongside BE charging solutions, and companies like JCB leading the way in developing hydrogen solutions for into their zero-carbon machinery range, the path to a decarbonised construction industry is becoming clearer than ever.

This is not just about meeting environmental targets; it’s about setting a new standard for sustainability in one of the world’s most pivotal industries.

The shift towards hydrogen and greener construction practices is a leap towards a sustainable future for the planet. The time for the construction industry to embrace hydrogen is now.
