Source: Aktuell Hållbarhet

Nilsson Energy are humble and proud to be one of the finalists for the E-prize in the cathegory “Energy optimization” by Aktuell Hållbarhet, E.ON and Dagens Industri.

Martina Wettin, describes in the article why energy optimization as “the holy grail” for the energy transition:

“Being able to store energy until you need it, and to optimize so that you have the right amount of energy at the right time, is a crucial piece of the puzzle. In order for this to be possible, a systemic approach needs to be taken.
The combination of water and batteries can provide a balance between being able to store large amounts of energy for a long time and get a quick effect.”

Press release – Nilsson Energy first in Sweden to offer a zero-emission portable fuel cell generator!

Nilsson Energy has signed a distribution agreement with the French company EODev (Energy Observer Developments) to sell GEH2® fuel cell power generators on the Nordic market. The portable fuel cell generator provides unique opportunities wherever zero emission energy is needed.

Nilsson Energy is a system integrator that develops, designs, installs and services decentralized energy systems with green hydrogen as an energy carrier. A fuel cell generator is a welcome addition to its existing product portfolio consisting of industrial applications, construction and property applications as well as applications for infrastructure in strategically important areas.

The fuel cell generator is absolutely “state of the art” and we see enormous potential in being able to offer zero emission electricity wherever it is needed. In addition, we can supply it with hydrogen and either sell or lease, which further facilitates handling for our customers,” says Pontus Lundgren, CEO of Nilsson Energy.

With the opportunity to sell portable fuel cell generators, Nilsson Energy takes the next step towards being a leading integrator of decentralized hydrogen systems. Systems that will be vital in the transition to a robust and secure society with access to renewable energy.

Sweden is a particularly promising country for the deployment of our zero emission power solutions and we are very pleased to welcome Nilsson Energy to our distribution network. We have found in Nilsson Energy a serious partner with a strong expertise in the field of hydrogen and a highly motivated team that shares our commitment to provide an excellent service to our customers, “says Stéphane Jardin, Chief Commercial Officer, EODev.

The fuel cell generator is manufactured by EODev outside Paris and the “heart” of the generator is a Toyota fuel cell, the same technology that powers Toyota’s hydrogen car Mirai. The agreement follows a first successful collaboration including the GEH2® between Nilsson Energy and Toyota Sweden earlier this year.

The fuel cell generator that converts green hydrogen into electrical energy is a good example of how the technology from the Toyota Mirai can be used in interesting new contexts. Thanks to Nilsson Energy, the technology is now available in Sweden, which I see as an interesting and useful development,” says Christian Norberg, CEO of Toyota Sweden AB.

Back-up power and electricity supply where there is no electricity grid

The generator can be applied to a wide range of different needs, ranging from where fossil-free electricity is needed without burdening the regular electricity grid, or where there is simply no power available to take from the fixed electricity grid. The generator can also secure back-up power for community-critical operations or be part of increased preparedness where, for example, an increasingly electrified vehicle fleet is without the necessary supply.

Say goodbye to the diesel generator

With the fuel cell generator, the need for diesel and other fossil-powered generators is reduced. It is perfect for construction sites, road works, agriculture or at larger events and concerts where there is a need for electricity and heat. As the generator is mobile and easy to handle, it can be moved to the next project or event, depending on the need.There are many areas of use for the generator, which can also be set up indoors in a ventilated environment. Getting generators out in, for example, heavily loaded urban environments can have a big positive impact

Charge electric vehicles and boats where the power grid is not sufficient

The product series that Nilsson Energy is now bringing to the market is also available in a marine application, which will facilitate the transition to electrification in the boating industry. By connecting to a mobile charging station, it is also possible to charge cars where there is no possibility today.

Press release: Unique investment to build Europe’s first network of green hydrogen filling stations

Press release December 10. 2021

 Swedish investment company Qarlbo makes a unique investment to establish Sweden and Europe’s first network of filling stations for green hydrogen. 24 filling stations will be built with financial support from The Climate Leap (Klimatklivet). The investment is an important step for Sweden’s and the EU’s plans to establish an infrastructure for fossil-free fuels.

The joint investment with The Climate Leap is estimated to be a total of SEK 515 million. Qarlbo is managing the project through the company REH2 and Nilsson Energy, a subsidiary of Qarlbo, has together with REH2’ CEO Christoffer Löfström initiated the project. The stations will be built at Rasta’s service facilities, offering refuelling, and charging of green hydrogen for primarily heavy vehicles such as trucks, buses, and cars. Rasta is Sweden’s biggest truck stop, which is visited daily by approximately 15 000 heavy vehicles.

“Through this initiative, we want to contribute to the climate transition,” says Per-Arne Blomquist, CEO Qarlbo. “A network of filling stations is a prerequisite for hauliers to be able to switch from fossil-fuelled to hydrogen-powered vehicles. But if there are not enough hydrogen-powered vehicles in traffic, it is difficult to justify investments in new infrastructure. At the same time, investments in infrastructure are being held back by the lack of vehicles. Now we are removing that obstacle.”

In its initial phase, the venture entails plans for nine hydrogen filling stations in Sweden by 2024. First out is Mariestad. The remaining 15 stations will be completed by the end of 2025.

In line with Sweden’s and the EU’s ambitions to accelerate the transition to a fossil-free transport system, the project is co-financed by public and private capital. In addition to a direct investment of SEK 161 million, Qarlbo is a long-term guarantor of the project and expects to have to cover a number of years’ operating deficit. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has, within the framework of The Climate Leap, granted support for the project totalling SEK 354 million. Qarlbo initially covers all costs in the project and the support from The Climate Leap is successively paid out as the filling stations are completed.

To achieve the EU’s climate goals, emissions need to be reduced dramatically, which, among other things, requires investments in green hydrogen, filling stations, and hydrogen-powered vehicles. The EU estimates the need for 1,500 filling stations by 2030, which requires that public and private actors collaborate and contribute financially.

The initiators hope that the investment in a network of filling stations will accelerate the development of hydrogen-powered vehicles and that buyers of transport will start making demands on fossil-free transport.

“Our investment is unique for Europe. While there are hydrogen filling stations in other countries, Sweden has the prerequisites to deliver a network of hydrogen filling stations with only green hydrogen. There is no one else who can provide this today”, says Martina Wettin, CEO Nilsson Energy.

By establishing the filling stations at Rasta’s facilities, the investment costs can be reduced at the same time as there are already trained personnel on-site who are used and licensed to handle various forms of fuel. Rasta will also become a part owner of REH2.

The Climate Leap is The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s investment program dedicated to supporting local and regional initiatives that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The invested funds must provide the greatest possible reduction in emissions per invested Swedish Krona. Support is only granted to measures that contribute to increasing the pace of achieving the climate goals and that would not otherwise have been implemented. The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency has by October, within the framework of The Climate Leap, granted investments totalling 7,7 billion kronor.

Pressmeddelande: Unik satsning för att bygga Europas första nät med tankstationer för grön vätgas



Investeringsbolaget Qarlbo gör en unik satsning på att etablera Sveriges och Europas
första nät av tankstationer för grön vätgas. Med ekonomiskt stöd från Klimatklivet ska
24 vätgastankstationer byggas. Satsningen är ett viktigt steg i Sveriges och EU:s planer
på att etablera en infrastruktur för fossilfria bränslen.

Investeringen tillsammans med Klimatklivet beräknas till cirka 515 Mkr. Qarlbo driver projektet i
bolaget REH2 och dotterbolaget Nilsson Energy är tillsammans med REH2:s VD Christoffer
Löfström initiativtagare till projektet. Vätgasstationerna kommer att uppföras på Rastas
serviceanläggningar, erbjuda tankning och laddning av grön vätgas. I första hand för tunga
fordon, som lastbilar och bussar, men även för personbilar. Rasta är Sveriges största truck-stop, som dagligen besöks av ca 15 000 tunga fordon.

”Genom den här satsningen vill vi bidra till och påskynda klimatomställningen,” säger Per-Arne
Blomquist, VD för Qarlbo. ”Ett nät av tankstationer är en förutsättning för att exempelvis
åkerierna ska kunna byta från fossildrivna till vätgasdrivna fordon. Samtidigt hålls investeringar
i infrastruktur tillbaka av att det saknas fordon. Nu undanröjer vi det hindret.”

I ett första steg ska nio vätgastankstationer byggas fram till 2024. Först ut är Mariestad.
Ytterligare 15 stationer ska stå klara vid utgången av 2025.
I linje med Sveriges och EU:s ambitioner att påskynda omställningen till ett fossilfritt
transportsystem samfinansieras projektet av offentligt och privat kapital. Qarlbo är, utöver en
direkt investering på 161 Mkr långsiktig garant för projektet och räknar med att behöva täcka
ett antal års driftunderskott.

Naturvårdsverket har inom ramen för Klimatklivet beviljat stöd till
projektet på sammanlagt 354 Mkr. Qarlbo täcker inledningsvis alla kostnader i projektet och
stödet från Klimatklivet betalas ut i mindre delar efterhand som tankstationerna färdigställs.
För att nå EU:s klimatmål behöver utsläppen minskas dramatiskt, vilket bland annat kräver
investeringar i grön vätgas, tankstationer och västgasdriva fordon. På europeisk nivå
uppskattas behovet till åtminstone 1 500 tankstationer 2030 vilket förutsätter att offentliga och
privata aktörer samverkar och bidrar ekonomiskt.

Förhoppningen är att satsningen på ett nätverk av tankstationer ska påskynda utvecklingen av
vätgasdrivna fordon och att transportköpare ska börja ställa krav på fossilfria transporter.
”Projektet är unikt i Europa. Det finns vätgastankstationer i andra länder, men i Sverige finns
förutsättningar att etablera ett nätverk av vätgastankstationer med enbart grön vätgas. Det
finns det ingen annan som gör idag”, säger Martina Wettin, medgrundare av Nilsson Energy.

Genom att etablera tankstationerna på Rastas anläggningar kan investeringskostnaderna
begränsas samtidigt som det redan finns utbildad personal på plats som har kunskap, vana
och tillstånd att hantera olika former av drivmedel. Rasta kommer också att vara delägare i

Klimatklivet är Naturvårdsverkets investeringsstöd för lokala och regionala satsningar med
avsikten att minska utsläppen av växthusgaser. De investerade medlen ska ge största möjliga
utsläppsminskning per investerade kronor och stöd ges endast till åtgärder som bidrar till att
öka takten för att nå klimatmålen och som annars inte skulle ha genomförts. Genom
Klimatklivet har Naturvårdsverket till oktober 2021 beviljat stöd om totalt 7,7 miljarder kronor.
