Hydrogen fuel gets more backing from Toyota
Hydrogen Fuel News
Famed Japanese automaker Toyota has been showing stronger support for hydrogen fuel recently. The company has long held an interest in electric vehicles, but has opted to support those that are powered by lithium-ion batteries over those powered by fuel cells. This is largely due to the extensive investments the company has committed to its acclaimed Prius brand of hybrid and electric vehicles. In the past year, Toyota announced that it was beginning to take hydrogen fuel more seriously.

HyperSolar to build commercial scale hydrogen generator
Gas World
HyperSolar has announced a plan to build new renewable hydrogen generators for commercial use. The new generator could potentially be installed anywhere to provide hydrogen fuel for local use. The company is the developer of a breakthrough technology which uses sunlight and water to produce hydrogen and its first commercial product, the H2Generator, is expected to sell at a lower price than other renewable hydrogen systems that rely on expensive and energy intensive electrolysers to split water.

Cheaper green energy storage solution invented by Calgary profs
CBC News
A new discovery by a pair of University of Calgary chemists could make the large-scale use of wind and solar energy more feasible. Curtis Berlinguette and Simon Trudel have invented an environmentally friendly, highly customizable way to make a key component in a process that stores electricity by turning water into hydrogen fuel — at a price they say is roughly 1,000 times cheaper than current methods for making that component.

Air-powered engine promises no emissions
KSL
Peter Dearman, 61, who lives in the country just outside of London, built a liquid-air powered engine in his vintage Vauxhall Nova. Though it's not the first engine to run on steam, Dearman has made the engine more efficient. Using heat from the atmosphere and liquid air stored in a beer keg, the engine and antifreeze warm the liquid air to boiling, creating a high air pressure that drives the pistons, exhausting cold air.

Hydrogen fuel cell technology highlighted in new Portland Community College course
Hydrogen Fuel News
Oregon's Portland Community College is to begin offering a new course in the field of renewable energy in April of this year. Renewable energy is becoming a very prominent focus in the U.S., but progress toward its adoption has been significantly delayed over the years due to technological problems and concerns regarding cost. Awareness and education are quickly becoming powerful tools that can overcome these problems and help renewable energy establish a stronger presence in the U.S.

CHP: A new generation of renewable power technology
Fierce Energy
More recently, fuel cell technology has made its way into the market. Fuel cells are not just the cleanest form of power generation but they are quiet (no moving parts) and can generate 400 kW to 5,000 kW of electric power per unit using natural gas, hydrogen and even biomass (methane) as input fuel. In a fuel cell, no fossil fuel combustion takes place. This clean energy CHP solution easily meets the most stringent emissions requirements in the world. The only byproduct of the process is heat.
