Report: Japan to crank up green car grants
Business Green
The Japanese government could be about to launch one of the world's most generous green car incentive schemes, in a bid to provide a boost to the nascent hydrogen fuel cell sector. According to Bloomberg reports, the government is preparing to announce rebates worth two million yen, around $20,000, for motorists purchasing Toyota's new hydrogen-fuelled sedan.

Honda hydrogen fuel cell car stylishly envisaged
Ecomento
Honda, on the heels of Toyota and Hyundai, will launch a hydrogen fuel cell next year. Unlike the others, however, the new car's final design is still under wraps. The design of clean energy cars is often argued. Some believe that an innovative powertrain should be reflected by avant-garde design, like the Nissan LEAF or BMW i8. Others think a traditionally attractive aesthetic is important if you don't want to scare of potential customers, which is an attitude Tesla has adopted for the Model S.

Study highlights the potential of using solar power to generate hydrogen fuel
Hydrogen Fuel News
A new study from the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis aims to shed some light on the issue of photoelectrochemical hydrogen production. This process involves the use of solar energy to produce hydrogen, which can be used by fuel cells to generate electrical power. Current hydrogen production methods are energy intensive, consuming a significant amount of fossil-fuels that produce harmful emissions.

Platinum-yttrium nanoparticle catalyst may help reduce cost of fuel cells
Azo Nano
Fuel cells are a promising, non-polluting way to power cars, but their platinum catalysts are so expensive that there's no way current technology could be economically scaled up for widespread use. Now scientists at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and the Technical University of Denmark have developed an alternative that would use just one-fifth as much of the pricey metal.

NIST develops prototype meter test for hydrogen refueling stations
R&D Magazine
To support the fair sale of gaseous hydrogen as a vehicle fuel, researchers at NIST have developed a prototype field test standard to test the accuracy of hydrogen fuel dispensers. Once the standard is field tested, it will serve as a model for constructing similar devices for state weights and measures inspectors to use. Three automakers plan to begin selling hydrogen-fueled vehicles to consumers in 2015.

Exelon buys 21 megawatts of fuel cells from Bloom Energy
Bloomberg
Exelon, the largest U.S. producer of nuclear power, agreed to buy fuel-cell power plants with 21 megawatts of capacity that Bloom Energy plans to install at 75 corporate sites in four states. Commercial customers including AT&T will purchase the electricity, often at a premium to a utility's grid price, for each plant's ability to provide power locally with less pollution and more reliability than the grid, said KR Sridhar, Bloom's co-founder and chief executive officer.
