Report predicts the growth of hydrogen fuel cell market
Hydrogen Fuel News
Markets and Markets, a leading market analysis and research firm, has released a new report concerning the future of the hydrogen fuel cell market. The fuel cell industry has been laboring to achieve some semblance of profitability over the past several years. Profitability and commercialization has proven to be a difficult task for the industry as a whole due to the various misconceptions and serious concerns that surround hydrogen fuel cells.

Polymer turns ocean water into hydrogen fuel
Mumbai Mirror
The research team at UOW's Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) have developed a light-assisted catalyst that requires less energy input to activate water oxidation, which is the first step in splitting water to produce hydrogen fuel. By using the polymer, as little as five litres of sea water per day would produce enough hydrogen to power an average-sized home and an electric car for one day.

Japanese company develops new portable hydrogen fuel cell
Hydrogen Fuel News
Bio Coke Lab, a Japanese environmental technology company, has developed a small, portable hydrogen fuel cell that can be used for personal purposes. The fuel cell system is comprised of technology from Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies and magnesium hydride storage technologies developed by Bio Coke Lab itself. The fuel cell exists today as a prototype to show off the capabilities of such a small system, which weighs only 8.5 kilograms and produces 33 watts of electrical power.

Hydrogen fuel continues to win favour of BMW Manufacturing
Hydrogen Fuel News
Plug Power, a leading developer of hydrogen fuel cells, and BMW Manufacturing, automaker BMW's manufacturing division, have been enjoying a powerful partnership recently. Plug Power recently delivered a number of hydrogen fuel cells to BMW Manufacturing, where these energy systems were put to use in forklift trucks and other such materials handling vehicles. This was meant to move BMW Manufacturing away from the use of fossil-fuels, and this endeavor seems to be working very well as the company continues to order new hydrogen fuel cells to meet its needs.

Cost of hydrogen fuel cells may soon drop due to catalyst breakthrough
Hydrogen Fuel News
When it comes to hydrogen fuel cells, cost is a major issue that often determines whether these energy systems are used or abandoned in favor of less expensive alternatives. Indeed, the high cost of hydrogen fuel cells has prevented these energy systems from finding any significant traction beyond the auto industry, and cost may be what leads to the potential failure of that industry's strong focus on these energy systems.

Denmark simplifies hydrogen infrastructure by installing a fueling station in only 48 hours
Digital Trends
Copenhagen has officially received 15 of the Hyundai iX35 production fuel-cell cars for its municipal fleet, as the city attempts to go "carbon-neutral." Before it could start running the new-gen green cars around the city, though, it had to have a fueling station. The city solved that problem by installing its first hydrogen station in just 48 hours, 36 of which were allocated for fuel compression.

First hydrogen from E.ON power-to-gas plant injected into the natural gas grid
Fuel Cell Today
E.ON has injected hydrogen from its power-to-gas demonstration plant in Falkenhagen into the natural gas grid for the first time. The plant, which is still under construction, takes electricity from a nearby wind farm to power Hydrogenics electrolysers which create hydrogen for injection into the natural gas grid. During the test run, 160 cubic metres of hydrogen was successfully injected over the space of an hour.
