Japan plans ample support for fuel cell car technology
Reuters
The Japanese government is planning to offer ample support to popularize fuel cell vehicle technology as Toyota Motor Corp and Honda Motor Co prepare to launch hydrogen-powered cars in 2015. The government recently drafted a timeline that spelled out targets and actions over the next 25 years to commercialize fuel cell vehicles and boost use of hydrogen energy in general.

Argonne gets $2 million federal grant for hybrid fuel cell development
Chicago Tribune
Argonne National Laboratory received a $2 million federal grant to help develop hybrid fuel cells as part of a move to diversify away from traditional electricity-generating power plants and better incorporate renewable sources of energy, such as wind and solar. While that amount of money alone won't allow America to achieve energy independence, it does represent an exciting area of research, said Ted Krause, a chemical engineer at the southwest suburban facility who will head the new project.

Hydrogen breakthrough could be a game-changer for future of car fuels
Fleet News
U.K. researchers have announced what they believe to be a game-changer in the use of hydrogen as a "green" fuel. A new discovery by scientists at the U.K.'s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), offers a viable solution to the challenges of storage and cost by using ammonia as a clean and secure hydrogen-containing energy source to produce hydrogen on-demand.

Hyundai releases its fuel cell vehicle
Hydrogen Fuel News
South Korean automaker Hyundai has finally made its hydrogen-powered Tucson ix35 available in California. This represents the first commercial debut of the company's fuel cell vehicle in the world, though the ix35 will only initially be available for lease. Hyundai has been working tirelessly to promote its new fuel cell vehicle, highlighting the benefits of hydrogen fuel and how it can be used in clean transportation. While fuel cells have yet to win the support of the majority of consumers, automakers are all but convinced that the future of transportation will be powered by fuel cell technology.

Researchers develop fuel cells for increased airplane efficiency
Phys.org
Washington State University researchers have developed the first fuel cell that can directly convert fuels, such as jet fuel or gasoline, to electricity, providing a dramatically more energy-efficient way to create electric power for planes or cars. Led by Professors Su Ha and M. Grant Norton in the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture, the researchers have published the results of their work in the May edition of Energy Technology. A second paper on using their fuel cell with gasoline has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Power Sources. The researchers have made coin-sized fuel cells to prove the concept and plan to scale it up.

Producing hydrogen with sunlight
Environmental Research Web
All over the world researchers are investigating solar cells which imitate plant photosynthesis, using sunlight and water to create synthetic fuels such as hydrogen. Empa researchers have developed such a photoelectrochemical cell, recreating a moth's eye to drastically increase its light collecting efficiency. The cell is made of cheap raw materials — iron and tungsten oxide.
