Powercell displays prototype fuel cell
Automotive Design
It is believed to be the first functioning full-scale prototype fuel cell system in the world for production of electricity from road diesel in a clean, silent and cost efficient manner. PowerCell, a Swedish energy technology company with roots in the Volvo Group, will now extensively test and demonstrate the PowerPac prototype to the global industry and media from the company's headquarters and research center in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Carbon sequestration technique produces supergreen hydrogen fuel
R&D Mag
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists have discovered and demonstrated a new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide while generating carbon-negative hydrogen and producing alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification. The team demonstrated, at a laboratory scale, a system that uses the acidity normally produced in saline water electrolysis to accelerate silicate mineral dissolution while producing hydrogen fuel and other gases.

'Supergreen' hydrogen creation could capture carbon from the air and de-acidify the oceans
ExtremeTech
Back when George W. Bush announced a $1.2 billion plan to advance hydrogen fuel cells, the idea seemed rather implausible. Though it's the most abundant element in the universe by far, in our environment hydrogen hides so effectively that our methods of drawing it out as a so-called "zero-emissions" fuel have tended to be either ineffective or extremely dirty.

Hydrogen fuel cells used to power new submarine in Germany
Hydrogen Fuel News
ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, a shipbuilder and developer of maritime systems, has developed a new submarine that is powered by an innovative hydrogen fuel cell system. The submarine itself is part of an ongoing project from the German Navy, which is meant to incorporate clean technologies into marine vehicles. The submarine has been named U36 and is the second of its kind to be designed for the German Navy.

Japan takes charge of building hydrogen fuel infrastructure
Hydrogen Fuel News
While fuel cells have come a long way in terms of technology, hydrogen transportation still faces a significant challenge when it comes to infrastructure. The success of hydrogen-powered vehicles is expected to be hinged on the hydrogen fuel infrastructure that countries have in place to support such vehicles. Japan has long been a very valuable market for the auto industry and it is one of the countries that have been making strong progress in establishing a hydrogen fuel infrastructure.

Hydrogen solution fuels dream of clean cars
The Vancouver Sun
Cella Energy, an Oxford, England-based energy technology company figures it has the solution for car manufacturers trying to win support for hydrogen power. In less than five years, your new car could be powered by a high-pressure tank of hydrogen rather than petrol. This is what the big car makers are driving at as they seek to produce vehicles with low or no carbon emissions, but face a number of obstacles in making it a reality.

Hydrogen-powered Aston Martin — the story behind the racer
Autocar
Aston Martin has raced the world's first hydrogen-powered race car in an FIA-sanctioned event, completing the first race-pace zero-emissions lap of the Nürburgring in the process with technology that could feasibly be adapted to its road cars in the future. The Aston Martin Hybrid Hydrogen Rapide S competed in the Nürburgring 24 Hours, where it completed laps on hydrogen power alone both in qualifying and at the front of its class at times during the rain and fog-affected event.

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.

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.

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.

Solar energy championed by U.S. military
Hydrogen Fuel News
By now, it is a well known fact that the U.S. military has become one of the strongest supporters of renewable energy in the world. Each branch has a particular focus, as directed by the Department of Defense. The Navy, for instance, has a strong focus on biofuels and, to some extent, hydrogen fuel cells, and the Army has been working with solar energy aggressively for some time.
