Department of Energy launches new hydrogen fuel initiative
Hydrogen Fuel News
Hydrogen fuel has become a major focus for the global auto industry and this focus is likely to transform the transportation sector around the world. As automakers put more emphasis on clean transportation, global markets are beginning to respond by supporting the promotion of hydrogen fuel in the transportation sector. Much of this support comes in the form of governments working to establish a working hydrogen fuel infrastructure that will be capable of supporting a new generation of fuel cell vehicles.

Hybrid Hydrogen technology is ready to reduce CO2 emissions with minimal adaptation to current platforms
3D Car Shows
The Hybrid Hydrogen system developed by Alset Global has been designed as a practical, affordable, transitional technology which harnesses the advantages of hydrogen and decades of development of the internal combustion engine while avoiding the current obstacles to the widespread introduction of hydrogen-powered vehicles. After years of development, the company is in a position to offer both end-users and vehicle manufacturers with an effective solution that meets the mobility sector's climate gas reduction goals.

Fake forest converts sunlight into chemical energy
Mother Nature Network
One hour of global sunlight contains enough energy to meet the demands of every human on the planet for an entire year. And a recent breakthrough by scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory could make harnessing this energy for human consumption a reality. Researchers have developed an "artificial forest" that can convert solar energy into chemical fuels.

Navy drone sets new record with the help of hydrogen fuel
Hydrogen Fuel News
The U.S. Navy has become a very strong supporter of renewable energy over the past few years, driven heavily by the interests of the Department of Defense. The Navy has been involved in projects concerning various types of renewable energy, from solar energy to biofuels. Hydrogen fuel is included in the Navy's interests as well, but the military has been relatively reserved on its experimentation with fuel cells, preferring these energy systems for transportation purposes. The Navy has, however, achieved a major accomplishment concerning hydrogen fuel recently.

Liquid hydrogen-fueled UAV completes record flight time
Robotics Tomorrow
Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory flew their fuel cell powered Ion Tiger unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for 48 hours and 1 minute, by using liquid hydrogen (LH2) fuel in a new, NRL-developed, cryogenic fuel storage tank and delivery system. This flight shatters their previous record of 26 hours and 2 minutes set in 2009 using the same vehicle, but with gaseous hydrogen stored at 5,000 pounds per square inch (psi).

Researchers find a way to make solar energy more efficient
Hydrogen Fuel News
Researchers from Connecticut's Yale University have found a way to boost the efficiency of solar cells through the use of fluorescent dye. Efficiency has become a major topic in the field of solar energy. As solar energy begins to find more acceptance throughout the country, the need to develop more efficient technologies is becoming too great to ignore. Finding ways to make solar cells more efficient has become a very attractive subject for the science community.

New 'artificial leaf' concept could blow up fuel cell market
Clean Technica
The idea of an "artificial leaf" sounds simple enough: Take a small, cheap, light-collecting device the size of a typical leaf, dunk it in a quart of water, and use solar energy to generate enough hydrogen gas for powering a small fuel cell. Scaled up, these solar-derived fuel cells would provide an energy storage solution that puts solar power on the same consistent, reliable footing as any fossil fuel.

What is a fuel cell? And what is the carbon nanotube revolution?
Greener Ideals
Fuel cells are beneficial because they have a higher energy efficiency rating. They are 40 to 60 per cent energy efficient and about 85 per cent energy efficient in cells that can recycle released heat. To compare, the typical internal combustion engine of a car is about 25 per cent energy efficient. They are compact and lightweight, with no major moving parts, and can achieve up to 99.9999 per cent reliability.

DOE launches H2USA public-private partnership to deploy hydrogen infrastructure
Renewable Energy Focus
The U.S. Department of Energy has launched H2USA, a new public-private partnership focused on advancing hydrogen infrastructure to support more transportation energy options for US consumers, including fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). The H2USA partnership brings together automakers, government agencies, gas suppliers, and the hydrogen and fuel cell industries to coordinate research and identify cost-effective solutions to deploy infrastructure that can deliver affordable, clean hydrogen fuel in the U.S.

Finland sees promise in hydrogen fuel
Hydrogen Fuel News
It is no secret that transportation has been growing increasingly inclined toward hydrogen fuel. This renewable energy is likely to play a major role in the future of transit and those supporting hydrogen often believe that it is simply a matter of time before this is true. For those that have not yet been won over by the prospects of hydrogen fuel, the capabilities of fuel cells and how they can be used in transportation is still a dubious affair.

Urine for fuel: Make hydrogen fuel with what you make
iTech Post
Green energy is the need of today, given the overwhelming increase in population and constantly depleting natural resources. Thankfully, a new innovative and "green" approach has now been developed by a trio of young girls, which may permanently put an end to the world's fuel crisis. The system, developed by a few teenagers from the Doregos Private Academy in Lagos, uses an ordinary generator, easily available at home-improvement stores, which was then modified to run on hydrogen gas, not gasoline. The electricity produced by the generator was used to break down water from the urine into its constituent molecules hydrogen and oxygen.
