Canadian companies to take Canada's clean tech story to Shanghai Sept. 25-28
CHFCA
Canada's Hydrogen and Fuel Cell sector will be showing off Canada's world-leading clean energy technology at the World Hydrogen Technical Conference 2013 in Shanghai Sept. 25 - 28. Leading Canadian companies like Hydrogenics, Ballard Power, Greenlight Innovation, Powertech and a host of others will be located in a major Canadian Pavillion at WHTC2013; company executives and leading Canadian academic experts and the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association will be attending in to implement the Canadian strategy aimed at increasing sales and market penetration in China.

Canada has a growing hydrogen and fuel cell relationship with China, with Azure, a Chinese firm, buying an equity stake in a Ballard subsidiary and also striking a deal with Ballard to develop fuel cell buses in China. Ballard has also sold it's first major order of fuel cells for telecom backup power to China telecom. More than 50 company, academic and government officials from China have visited Canada in the last two years to learn more about our industry.

You will also see Canadian companies at the Stuttgart Fuel Cell Conference at the end of September, and in Ohio at the U.S. Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Conference in October.

For more information on Canada's involvement at WHTC 2013, drop a note to Carolyn Bailey, Manager of Government Relations and Communications, at cbailey@chfca.ca.

Trade agreement could have a major impact on solar energy in Asia and Europe
Hydrogen Fuel News
With trade disputes between the European Union and China coming to an end, the two have launched a new trade agreement that may have a dramatic impact on the solar energy market. The trade disputes were linked to Chinese companies inundating the European market with low-cost photovoltaic modules and other such technologies. This did help reduce the over cost associated with solar energy, but also pushed some European manufacturers into bankruptcy because of their inability to produce low-cost solar technologies as quickly as their Chinese counterparts.

Report outlines importance of hydrogen fuelling stations
EV Fleet World
Manufacturers may have to slow the planned rollout of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles due to the slow deployment of refuelling stations, according to a new report from Navigant Research. The recently published study said carmakers are focused on reducing cost by raising volume, and establishing the supporting fuelling infrastructure through initiatives such as the H2Mobility scheme in Europe.

New materials enable hydrogen synthesis
Laboratory Equipment
Researchers at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have discovered an efficient process for hydrogen biocatalysis. They developed semi-synthetic hydrogenases, hydrogen-generating enzymes, by adding the protein's biological precursor to a chemically synthesized inactive iron complex. From these two components, the biological catalyst formed spontaneously in a test tube.

Clean hydrogen fuel created with sunlight and water in new method
Wired.co.uk
A new technique for producing hydrogen gas using sunlight and water has been developed by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder. The method is more efficient and produces more hydrogen than previous water-splitting methods. Hydrogen is an extremely important gas, used in everything from the production of the petrol we use in our cars to the creation of ammonia, which is used to fertilize the food that we eat.

Powering the future: Running on hydrogen
CBS News
When it comes to cars, Toyota thinks hydrogen fuel cells are one of the technologies of the future. And the company isn't alone. Offering the promise of a clean ride with long range, it's a technology automakers are racing to perfect, and one they're betting will catch on. "We see fuel cells as the ultimate answer (down the road) to zero-emission vehicles," Toyota spokesman Wade Hoyt told CBSNews.com. "By 2020, we're going to have fuel cells as an important part of our portfolio."

Can solar energy help mainstream hydrogen fuel production?
Sustainable Business
Researchers at the University of Colorado, Boulder (CU-Boulder) have dreamed up a radical approach to mainstreaming hydrogen fuel production. Hydrogen could be the ultimate clean energy source for powering cars and homes, but the costs associated with it are still enormous. CU-Boulder's idea is far away from commercial viability, but it is intriguing.
