Danish researchers find way to cut costs of fuel cells
Hydrogen Fuel News
Despite their high cost, fuel cells remain very popular for those interested in renewable energy. As such many organizations have been working to address the cost issues relating to these energy systems. The expensive nature of fuel cells is linked to the materials used to create the catalysts they rely on. Without a catalyst, fuel cells would not be able to operate effectively, and platinum has long been the ideal material to use when developing these catalysts.

Weird fuzzy compound could be next big fuel cell catalyst
Clean Technica
A team of researchers from Rutgers University is on track to develop nanoscale sheets of tungsten sulfide as a low cost replacement for platinum catalysts in fuel cells, and that could help push the electric vehicle market out of reliance on expensive lithium-ion batteries and into a more affordable format. The research is still in its early stages and meanwhile the nation's EV battery charging network has been skyrocketing.

ITM Power leads upgrade of hydrogen mini grid system in Northern England
Fuel Cell Today
ITM Power has been selected by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) as the preferred bidder in a recent competitive tender process to become the operator of a Hydrogen Mini Grid System (HMGS) in Rotherham, U.K. The HMGS is a unique UK asset consisting of a 225 kW wind turbine coupled directly to an electrolyser, 200 kg of hydrogen storage and a hydrogen dispensing unit as well as a 30 kW fuel cell system for back up power generation for nearby buildings.

'f-cell' — The international fuel cell forum
f-cell



The fuel cell forum f-cell is one of the largest international industry meeting points. f-cell highlights the current developments in stationary, mobile and special applications of fuel cells and is concerned with the production and distribution of hydrogen. At the f-cell conference, German and international experts provide first-hand market information and insight into the latest developments. The f-cell trade fair is a well-established business platform and an important showcase for companies to introduce their newest fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.

f-cell takes place together with BATTERY+STORAGE and e-mobil BW TECHNOLOGIETAG under the common roof of WORLD OF ENERGY SOLUTIONS. Last year, more than 3,000 experts from 23 countries visited the trade fair and conference.

Location: Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre (Messe Stuttgart), Germany

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.

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.

Tata Motors and ISRO develop first Indian fuel cell bus
Fuel Cell Today
India's first fuel cell bus is undergoing testing at an Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) facility, reports The Economic Times of India. Tata Motors and ISRO entered into a fuel cell bus development MoU in 2006 and the ensuing work has now come to fruition. The fuel cells used in the test vehicle have been developed using experiences gained from ISRO's development of cryogenic technologies.

Nitrogen-doped graphene could help hydrogen fuel cells get cheaper
The Green Optimistic
The study published in the latest issue of Scientific Reports states that this technology could replace platinum-based catalysts used in dye-sensitized solar and fuel cells. Platinum-based electrodes in solar and fuel cells are probably the biggest limitation of these ever-so-needed alternative energy sources. These electrodes are highly expensive, and a subject to environmental damage.
