Hyundai will begin mass production of hydrogen fuel cell cars
The Verge
Hyundai announced plans to begin mass production of hydrogen fuel cell cars, as part of an effort to spearhead the development of zero-emission vehicles. As Korea's Yonhap News Agency reports, Hyundai will begin producing hydrogen-powered versions of its Tucson ix SUV at its Usan plant in South Korea, in the hopes of selling 1,000 models across the world by 2015. The hydrogen-based Tucson ix presents obvious environmental benefits, emitting only water vapor as it converts hydrogen into electricity.

U.S. offers more funding for hydrogen fuel research
Hydrogen Fuel News
The U.S. Energy Department has announced funding for a new project meant to advance cost-competitive hydrogen fuel. The government agency has been showing more support for hydrogen fuel in recent years, despite having a limited interest in this form of renewable energy. One of the reasons hydrogen fuel has received such limited support from the federal government in the past is because of issues concerning cost, but the Department of Agency is keen to ensure that hydrogen fuel has a bigger role to play in the country's energy structure.

Fuel cells find progress in South Africa
Hydrogen Fuel News
The government of South Africa has been showing major interest in hydrogen fuel cells in recent years. The country is home to the world's largest supply of platinum, making it an ideal home for a domestic fuel cell industry. This fact has not been lost on the government, which has been investing heavily in the fields of fuel cell and catalyst manufacture. In an ongoing effort to develop new hydrogen fuel cells and test their viability for clean transportation, the government has helped fund a project that has modified a golf cart and equipped it with a fuel cell energy system.

AFC Energy races ahead with first delivery to ICL
Proactive Investors
AFC Energy has delivered the first fuel cell electricity generating system to a major British chemical plant ahead of schedule. It is part of the multi-stage project to install a low-cost fuel cell system at Industrial Chemicals Limited (ICL), with the aim of eventually generating around one megawatt (MW) of electricity, or enough energy to power 500 homes.

Forze VI hydrogen racecar: 135 mph top speed
Fuel Cell Today
The Netherlands' Delft University of Technology has revealed the details of the sixth generation of its hydrogen fuel cell racecar, the Forze. The car is noticeably smaller than last year's Forze V and is now about the size of an average streetcar; furthermore, the latest generation is six times more powerful than its predecessor. The car features: a peak power of 190 kW (260 hp), acceleration of 0–60 mph in less than four seconds, and two electric motors powering each of the rear wheels.

Fuel cells could benefit from new iron-based catalyst
Hydrogen Fuel News
Throughout the long history of fuel cells, the technology has been criticized for its high cost. This is because the components necessary for fuel cells to function are composed of expensive materials, thus making production a costly effort. The catalysts used in these energy systems are their most expensive component. Researchers have developed a new catalyst that does not make use of platinum. Instead, this catalyst is based on iron and has shown that it can produce hydrogen gas as well as help generate electricity within a fuel cell.

Turbos face over-boosted efficiency claims
National Post
There's been tough news for automakers looking to boost their corporate average fuel economy in the wake of increasingly stringent government-mandated fleet averages. First came the Consumer Reports magazine report that many of the small turbocharged engines introduced in recent years to increase fuel economy without sacrificing performance are failing to perform, sometimes on both fronts.
