Hydrogen fuel petition emerges in the U.S.
Hydrogen Fuel News
Hydrogen fuel has been fighting to gain momentum in the U.S. over the past two years. The renewable energy has become very popular within the auto industry, but the U.S. government has been slow to warm to hydrogen fuel due to concerns regarding efficiency and the costs associated with establishing an expansive infrastructure that can support hydrogen-powered vehicles.

Hyundai's fuel cell car drives more smoothly than popular hybrids
Bloomberg
Like a regular SUV, Hyundai's fuel-cell-powered Tucson lets you cover about 370 miles on a single tank. Its silent power system and familiar six-speed automatic transmission make highways and city streets quieter than ever. In fact, there's not much you can't do with the hydrogen-cell Tucson that you can't do with a regular Tucson — except fill 'er up. And, for the moment, afford 'er.

Hydrogen fuel production may become more efficient with the help of wind energy
Hydrogen Fuel News
Hydrogen fuel has emerged as a very promising form of renewable energy. The production of hydrogen, however, has been the subject of criticism from those that believe it is inferior to other forms of clean power. Most methods of producing hydrogen fuel involve the use of fossil-fuels, such as coal and oil. This makes hydrogen much less environmentally friendly than it is often characterized as being.

Industry seeks government support for U.K. fuel cells
EAEM
A campaign has been launched to obtain more support for British-made hydrogen fuel cells under the feed-in tariff scheme, which it is claimed would see their prices come down in the same way as they did for solar PV modules, and safeguard U.K. jobs. The U.K. Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (UKHFCA) is calling on MPs to do more to support this technology, as British and European companies are lagging behind those in the U.S. and Korea in terms of government support for baseload power from fuel cell technology.

Renewable energy support evolving in the U.K.
Hydrogen Fuel News
The United Kingdom has made no secret of its plans to develop new nuclear energy systems within its borders in the coming years. The country has a strong need to move away from fossil-fuels and believes that nuclear energy is a viable way to accomplish this goal, despite some of the risks associated with the use of this renewable power and some opposition from the general public. The cost of other forms of renewable energy is dropping rapidly, however, which may have a major impact on the country's plans concerning nuclear power.

Iron-based catalyst developed for hydrogen fuel cell
EcoSeed
Scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have developed the first iron-based catalyst that can convert hydrogen directly to electricity for more affordable fuel cells. Fuel cells generate electricity out of hydrogen gas by triggering a chemical reaction that breaks the bond between the gas' two hydrogen molecules, releasing electrons to create an electrical current.
