New hydrogen fuel cells coming to energy project in Canada
Hydrogen Fuel News
The Ramea Wind-Hydrogen-Diesel Project is beginning its second phase, which is expected to last for the next five years. The project is meant to show how traditional diesel generators can be displaced through the introduction of wind energy and hydrogen fuel. The construction of the project was completed in 2010 and it has been generating electrical power since then.

GM takes an aggressive step on clean transportation
Hydrogen Fuel News
Currently, approximately 153,034 electric vehicles from General Motors are on the road. The demand for these vehicles has been modest in the past, but more consumers are becoming interested in clean transportation, especially as battery technology becomes more advanced and efficient. General Motors is not only interested in producing battery electrics, of course, and has plans to introduce fuel cell vehicles at some point in the relatively near future.

Futuristic fuel cells planned for Ramea wind project
The Gulf News
Nalcor is pushing ahead with its experimental project in Ramea that has found a way to use hydrogen to store the energy from wind turbines. Nancy Hart, manager of business development with Nalcor, said the hydrogen is stored in basic metal tanks, and used as fuel in specially designed generators when the wind isn't blowing. The hydrogen generators also offset the town's diesel generators.

New fuel cell could eliminate waste at biodiesel plants
The Daily Fusion
A new fuel-cell concept, developed by a Michigan State University researcher, will allow biodiesel plants to eliminate the creation of hazardous wastes while removing their dependence on fossil fuel from their production process. The platform, which uses microbes to glean ethanol from glycerol and has the added benefit of cleaning up the wastewater, will allow producers to reincorporate the ethanol and the water into the fuel-making process, said Gemma Reguera, MSU microbiologist and one of the co-authors.

A new solution for storing hydrogen fuel for alternative energy
Space Daily
Turning the "hydrogen economy" concept into a reality, even on a small scale, has been a bumpy road, but scientists are developing a novel way to store hydrogen to smooth out the long-awaited transition away from fossil fuels. Their report on a new solid, stable material that can pack in a large amount of hydrogen that can be used as a fuel appears in the ACS journal Chemistry of Materials.

California invests in hydrogen fuel stations
In Auto News
In America, one particular state is the "green" technology heaven, with California's rules among the toughest on car pollution in the world. And, because if you set up rules, you also make the necessary adjustment, the state is constantly investing in eco car tech. Because the state is pursuing all angles when it comes to offering its residents alternative means of transportation, the land of "green" experiments is not putting all its eggs in one baskets — that being the electric/hybrid car one.

How does the hydrogen Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell stack up against a Tesla?
California is the center of U.S. car culture, and that's particularly true of green cars. The state's strict emissions regulations, zero-emission vehicle mandate, and support of hydrogen refueling stations mean Californians have more choices than the average green car buyer. Take the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, the hydrogen-powered crossover that's rolling off cargo ships near Los Angeles right now and will only be sold in select California markets.
