California joins push for national fuel cell EV network
Triple Pundit
California has just joined the Obama administration's new public-private partnership H2 USA, and that should go a long way towards helping fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) secure a place in the electric vehicle market of the future. H2 USA was created last year in order to kickstart the FCEV market, which right now faces a classic chicken-and-egg problem.

Using proton-exchange-membrane fuel cells to recover high-purity helium
Phys.org
The University of Hawaii at Mānoa's Hawaii Natural Energy Institute (HNEI), together with Sierra Lobo, has demonstrated the recovery of high-purity helium from hydrogen/helium mixtures produced at rocket engine testing sites using proton-exchange-membrane fuel cells. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) uses a large amount of helium gas — about a million cubic feet per launch — to purge hydrogen from their fuel lines.

DOE launches new hydrogen fuel project
Hydrogen Fuel News
The U.S. Department of Energy has been increasing the support it has shown for hydrogen fuel in recent months. The federal agency had once considered fuel cells to be nothing more than a novelty, but now believes that these energy systems could be quite effective at helping the country reach its emissions reduction goals and embrace renewable energy more effectively.

Study sparks new hope for hydrogen fuel cells
Hydrogen Fuel Cells
The U.S. Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has released a new study concerning a nature-inspired catalyst that may provide a better insight into hydrogen fuel cells. These energy systems have become a major interest for the Department of Energy recently and the federal agency has been investing aggressively in finding ways to make fuel cells less expensive and more efficient.

Toyota preparing for 'the next 100 years' with fuel cell vehicles
Hybrid Cars
At this year's New York Auto Show conventional vehicles were well represented, but quietly shouting its potential to one day usurp them all was Toyota's Fuel Cell Vehicle Concept. Or rather, a bold declaration for fuel cell vehicles was made by one of the largest banners prominently positioned high toward the atrium ceiling of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, along with other signs strategically placed.

New tool may lead to commercially viable fuel cells
Azo Cleantech
Fuel cells have long been heralded as the energy technology of the future. Invented in 1838, the cells promise an almost limitless supply of clean energy for everything from cars to electrical grids, but have always proven too expensive to manufacture, fuel and maintain to enter mainstream use. Hoping to bring down those costs, a team of Bucknell faculty and student researchers has developed a new tool that could greatly accelerate fuel cell experimentation.

Mantra energy: The future of portable fuel cell technology?
ALT Energy Stocks
When one thinks of fuel cells and fuel cell technology some names immediately come to mind. Ballard Power went public in 1993 and was listed on NASDAQ in 1995. A company that made its debut in 1997 was Plug Power, a joint venture between DTE Energy and Mechanical Technology Inc. Hydrogenics is a company that has been around for 60 years, but more recently has gotten investor attention for their fuel cell technology.

Hydrogen vehicles to debut at Pearl Harbor-Hickam
Stars and Stripes
Vehicles powered by hydrogen fuel cells will soon be shuttling visitors around Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and towing aircraft to the flight line at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. But it will probably be a while before Hawaii motorists in any significant numbers will be able to take one of the emissions-free cars for a spin on isle roads.
