Toyota takes on Tesla with its first hydrogen fuel cell car
Mashable
Toyota has announced its first commercial hydrogen fuel cell car, a sedan based on the concept unveiled at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. Priced at approximately 7 million yen in Japan, the car is an obvious rival for Tesla's Model S, which starts at $69,000. The range and the refueling time both have advantages over Tesla.

'Cracking' breakthrough brings hydrogen fuel closer
Wired
A new technique for producing hydrogen from ammonia could allow for a new generation of clean, green vehicle fuels. Energy researchers at the U.K.'s Science and Technology Facilities Council have developed a way of turning ammonia into hydrogen that's far cheaper than previous methods. While hydrogen is an excellent fuel source, and totally carbon-free, it's difficult to store on board a vehicle in a safe and efficient manner.

Fuel cells move closer to powering ground support equipment vehicles
Aviation Pros
A recent demonstration of our newly engineered hydrogen fuel cell beta unit designed to power ground support equipment (GSE) vehicles used to haul luggage and cargo at airports around the world, means we are one step closer to providing a zero-emission power source for these vehicles. This demo is a significant step in Plug Power's strategy to expand into markets adjacent to material handling, where the company's GenDrive fuel cells have overwhelmingly proved their value.

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.

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.
