New innovative technology for low cost monatomic hydrogen and biofuels
Phys.org
Hydrogen fuel cells are emerging as key players in the clean energy landscape of the future, except for one problem: It takes a lot of energy to make hydrogen (H2-molecular), and here in the U.S., the preferred source of that energy appears to be fresh water, an un-reliable, expensive and scarce critical life giving resource. API researchers have been turning their attention to renewable energy for producing rare low-cost monatomic hydrogen and biofuels from seawater, biomass, and natural gas.

U.K. fleets form major part of Hyundai hydrogen plans
FleetWorld
Fleet operators in the U.K., including public sector organizations, are set to play a major role in Hyundai's plans for its series-manufactured hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle, based on the ix35 crossover. Production of a first batch of ix35 Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles began earlier this year, with plans to build 1,000 units by the time its successor is ready for mass production in 2015.

Bacteriorhodopsin proton pumps as a catalyst for hydrogen fuel
Science2.0
Bacteriorhodopsin found in the membranes of ancient microorganisms in desert salt flats have been used generate environmentally friendly hydrogen fuel by researchers at Argonne National Laboratory. The scientists combined bacteriorhodopsin, a pigment which is responsible for the unusual purple color of a number of salt flats in California and Nevada, with semiconducting nanoparticles in a system that uses light to spark a catalytic process that creates hydrogen fuel.

Sugar to hydrogen: Meeting the world's clean energy needs
OilPrice
Hydrogen is one of the most efficient fuels in the world. It has a far higher energy density than gasoline, and is three times as energy efficient, making it the fuel of choice for NASA to power its space shuttles. It is also incredibly clean, producing only H2O as waste. The problem is that hydrogen is very difficult to produce on a large scale, and this prevents it from making a significant contribution to the global energy mix.

Army may be involved in GM and Honda hydrogen fuel partnership
Hydrogen Fuel News
General Motors and Honda recently announced a new joint venture meant to promote progress in the field of hydrogen fuel cells and their use in transportation. Through this partnership, the two automakers plan to develop innovative fuel cell technologies over the next five years. The automakers will not only be working with one another, however, as their partnership also incorporates other stakeholders that have yet to be identified.

ITM Power makes hydrogen storage breakthrough in U.K.
Gas to Power Journal
As part of a "smart grid" feasibility study, energy storage company ITM Power has launched an upgrade to its hydrogen-producing HGas electrolyser on the Isle of Wight, U.K. to allow more solar and wind power to come on the grid safely. Sponsored by the U.K. government, the study examines how HGas electrolyser units produce hydrogen gas from surplus renewable power that utilities can sell as fuel to natural gas consumers and power plants.

'Peak oil' less a concern as alternatives reduce demand
Clean Technica
Researchers at Stanford report that "peak oil" — and the related fears that we have depleted the Earth's supply of oil so much that we will run into greater conflicts between supply and demand that will stimulate social unrest and economic problems — are unwarranted. They conclude that the demand for oil — as opposed to the supply — will reach its own peak and then decline.

First hydrogen fuel cell powered ferry in U.K. showcases green technology
Renewable Energy Focus
The U.K.'s first hydrogen-powered ferry — named Hydrogenesis — is operating in Bristol Harbour, demonstrating the practical and commercial advantages of fuel cell technology during a pilot scheme over the summer. The Hydrogenesis ferry is being operated by Bristol Hydrogen Boats — a consortium between No. 7 Boat Trips, Bristol Packet, and Auriga Energy, which developed the fuel cell system — while Air Products is providing the hydrogen and a dockside refueling station.
