Solar cell project creates hydrogen fuel and bypasses batteries
Slashgear
Batteries are a distraction: The best way to store excess solar energy for nighttime use is using it to create "solar fuels" that rely on energy-dense chemistry, one research team has concluded. The prototype takes a cue from plants and uses a new type of solar cell that relies on the sun's energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.

Researchers find way to produce hydrogen fuel efficiently
Hydrogen Fuel News
A team of researchers have discovered that the semi-precious gemstone Peridot can be used to produce hydrogen fuel by mimicking a natural process. Researchers have found that they can use this material to strip one oxygen molecule and one hydrogen molecule from water, producing a mineral known as serpentine.

After decade of losses, Plug Power may turn a profit in 2014
Forbes
Plug Power got a boost in the market after winning an award from the U.S. Energy Department to develop hydrogen fuel cell range extenders for 20 FedEx Express electric delivery trucks. For folk familiar with the history of fuel cells, the more titillating news is not that Plug Power won another research and development contract from the U.S. government, but rather the prospect of Plug Power turning a profit for the first time in its 14 year history.

Hydrogen fuel cell is new charger for mobile gadgets
New Scientist
While smartphones continue to improve markedly every year, a key component seemingly left in the dust is their battery, leading some companies to build portable batteries that can hold multiple charges for smartphones. In a twist, a charger based on a hydrogen fuel cell, originally designed for use in parts of Africa without mains electricity, is to go on sale in the U.S. The news was announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

For hydrogen fuel cells, blue is the new green
Clean Technica
A team of researchers at Argonne National Laboratory has figured out an efficient way to split hydrogen gas from water, using a low cost cobalt-based catalyst instead of pricey platinum. Most are wondering when hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles would start nudging ahead of plug-in EVs in the race for market share, and guess what: That's not going to happen real soon, but the Argonne breakthrough demonstrates that it could happen sooner rather than later.

Life with a hydrogen fuel cell Honda
The Wall Street Journal
Jon Spallino: When Honda put out a hydrogen fuel-cell car, I was the very first retail customer, in 2005. Since then I've signed on for a newer Honda FCX Clarity, which is only available in Southern California. The fuel is hydrogen in compressed gas form, which interacts with oxygen to develop electricity. The only emissions are water.
