Excess wind power turned into gas in Denmark using hydrogenics technology
Global News Wire
Hydrogenics Corporation, a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and hydrogen-based power modules, announced that it will be a participating partner of the Power-to-Gas Biological Catalysis ("BioCat") Project in Denmark. The "BioCat" installation will use hydrogen made from excess wind power to convert biogas from sewage sludge into cleaner methane gas.
Singapore-Israel cooperation leads to world's first civilian fuel cell UAS
Horizon Energy Systems of Singapore has produced an ultra-light fuel cell power system that has led to a new flight duration breakthrough for civilian unmanned aircraft systems. As part of a cooperation between Singapore and Israel, the programme has enabled the start of commercialization of a first hydrogen fuel cell powered, long endurance civilian UA system able to fly for up to 10 hours at a time, able to cover a much wider area and lowering operational cost for end-users.
Artificial leaf breakthrough could lead to efficient hydrogen fuel production
Hydrogen Fuel News
Researchers from the Arizona State University and the Argonne National Laboratory have made a major breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis. The breakthrough may have enabled researchers to overcome serious limitations in their initial design of a functioning artificial leaf. This leaf has been heralded as a major accomplishment throughout the science world.
Hyundai Intrado Concept revealed as a funky hydrogen-powered compact SUV
The Hyundai Intrado Concept — revealed a little earlier than Hyundai planned thanks to leaked photos isn't just a new concept, but a precursor for Hyundai's design future, the way it builds cars and a new hydrogen power plant. So there's a lot on offer. Under the skin, the Intrado uses tubular CFRP to create a superstructure — lighter and stronger — and the power plant is a new, more powerful version of the hydrogen fuel cell in the ix35.

Hydrogen fuel gets boost from new, inexpensive materials
While hydrogen fuel production — via the splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen using sunlight — has long been prominent in the public imagination, the reality is that the technology is still quite a ways off from being economical. That gap between the economical and the reality is narrowing though, as new research from the University of Wisconsin-Madison shows.
The fracking boom causes a second look at fuel cell cars
The abundance of natural gas brought about by the fracking revolution is causing some to take a second look at fuel cell powered cars.
"In the mid-1990s, when fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) first appeared on my radar, they seemed like an ideal alternative to the gasoline engines in most passenger cars, offering zero tailpipe emissions and very low lifecycle, or well-to-wheels emissions of all types."
