HyperSolar has developed artificial photosynthesis particles using a simplified low-cost aqueous process
Gas World
HyperSolar, Inc. announced that is has identified a low-cost aqueous process to produce artificial photosynthesis particles required for water splitting. One of major challenges in solar-powered water splitting is the use of expensive high voltage solar cells. To address this challenge, the company's research team at the University of Iowa (UOI) successfully fabricated a hydrogen production particle with a low cost high voltage solar cell.

Hydrogen fuel could be used to store solar energy
Hydrogen Fuel News
Europe may need better ways to store its renewable energy and hydrogen fuel cells may be able to serve as a tool for such a purpose. In Europe, solar energy has established a significant foothold. This form of clean power has become favored for its economic and environmentally friendly aspects, leading several countries to embrace this form of power in order to become more sustainable in the future. Without efficient storage solutions, however, solar energy may struggle to meet the needs of European countries.

NASCAR's first hydrogen-powered pace car hits the track
Engadget
NASCAR may be dominated by gas-guzzling racers, but its pace car this weekend is decidedly kinder to the environment. The motorsport league's Sprint Cup race in Richmond on the 26th (delayed from the 25th due to rain) has Toyota's hydrogen-powered Mirai as its pace car — the first time a fuel cell car has had that distinction at a NASCAR event.

Hydrogen fuel cell development launched in Thailand
Hydrogen Fuel News
AFC Energy, a prominent developer of hydrogen fuel cells, will be working with Bangkok Industrial Gas in order to develop a new fuel cell system. The development of this system will take place over three stages and will be the first time AFC Energy has developed such a system in Thailand. The two companies will evaluate viable deployment strategies for the fuel cell system in the coming months, hoping to gather some insight on the market demands concerning hydrogen fuel and clean energy.

A new source of hydrogen for fuel-cell vehicles
MIT Technology Review
A new method for making hydrogen directly from plants could be an inexpensive way to generate fuel for alternative vehicles, perhaps paving the way for hydrogen refueling stations that rely on agricultural waste. For several years, Percival Zhang, a professor of biological systems engineering at Virginia Tech, has been developing an enzymatic method to break complex sugars — like those found in plant material — into their component parts. Zhang's process is "cell-free," meaning it does not require microorganisms like those used in fermentation.

Toshiba demos PV, fuel-cell, battery, hydrogen system
Energy Manager Today
Toshiba is demonstrating operation of its H2One, an independent energy supply system based on renewable energy and use of hydrogen as a fuel for power generation. Toshiba installed the system at two locations in Kawasaki: the Kawasaki Marien public facility and Higashi-Ogishima-Naka Park in the Kawasaki Port area. H2One combines a photovoltaic installation, storage batteries, hydrogen-producing water electrolysis equipment, hydrogen and water tanks, and fuel cells.

Toyota fuel cell research getting $4.2 billion investment
Hybrid Cars
Toyota advertises it's paving the way for "the next 100 years" of a "hydrogen society," but to initially do so it plans to subsidize the effort with sale of $4.2 billion in stock. The world's largest automaker is floating research and development beyond its Mirai FCV which has begun slow sales in Japan and is due to begin selling later this year in Europe and California in small numbers.

Dubai to invest in hydrogen fuel cells
Hydrogen Fuel News
Dubai has formed an agreement with AFC Energy, a developer of hydrogen fuel cells, that represents the largest single deployment of fuel cells in the city-state. These fuel cells will be part of Dubai's ambitious infrastructure plans, which involves an increased focus on renewable energy and clean technology. Dubai intends to reduce the emissions it produces in the coming years, becoming more environmentally friendly and spurring economic growth through the adoption of renewable energy systems.

Hydrogen fuel breakthrough: Clean power generated without relying on fossil fuels
Daily Mail
A breakthrough has been made in the development of clean hydrogen power, scientists claim. At the moment, while hydrogen fuel is appealing, the production of hydrogen is incredibly difficult — requiring huge amounts of energy. But the researchers say they have made a new material that can generate hydrogen from water, meaning it is less reliant on fossil fuels.
