Why automakers will build more hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
LA Times
Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles could soon gain ground on electric cars in the race to develop zero-emission cars, according to a new report. The auto industry is seeing a convergence of factors that make fuel cell cars more viable, according to the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis. Major automakers are pushing the technology. Hyundai began leasing its Tucson fuel cell crossover in Southern California earlier this year, targeting the handful of communities that have hydrogen fueling stations.

Diesel-like hydrogen breakthrough rekindles platinum fuel-cell excitement
Mining Weekly
A breakthrough that gives stored hydrogen diesel-like characteristics for safe and efficient long-term energy storage is rekindling excitement that the introduction of new clean energy from platinum-based hydrogen fuel cells may be close at hand. Liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology is seen as the probable code cracker for the entry of efficient, versatile and scaleable hydrogen fuel cells that will ensure the new generation of clean, reliable and cost-effective power that the world is crying out for.

New material could help convert fossil-fuels into hydrogen fuel
Hydrogen Fuel News
Researchers from the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom have devised a new way to capture carbon dioxide. The material could play a major part in helping society move away from fossil-fuels, embracing cleaner energy options, such as hydrogen. Carbon capture is becoming a relatively popular subject as more countries look for ways to mitigate the emissions that they are responsible for. Modern carbon capture methods are typically expensive and logistically difficult to manage, but this new material could help make carbon dioxide less environmentally dangerous than it is today.

Japan, U.S. partner to develop fuel-celled, unmanned patrol submarine
Tech Times
What happens when Japan and United States decide to work together? Something wonderful. At least if reports were true. Japanese daily Yomiuri Shimbun reported that the Japanese defense ministry is working on a submarine in collaboration with Washington, a 33-foot sub that could run unmanned on a pre-charted course.

Plans for world's largest hydrogen bus fleet move forward
STV News
Aberdeen City Council is seeking a contractor to build a second hydrogen processing facility to fuel its fleet of ten green buses, set to launch later this year. The station will be capable of refuelling two buses back-to-back within 30 minutes. The second station was made possible by a new grant from the European Regional Development Fund.

Virginia-based firm developing hydrogen sorage cylinders
NGT News
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has selected WireTough Cylinders LLC to lead a $2 million project aimed at developing low-cost, high-pressure storage vessels for hydrogen refueling stations. WireTough says its goal is to develop a 30-foot tank with a large storage volume of 700 gallons (2,600 liters) at high pressures (12,700 psi). The project result will be a cost-effective solution to store hydrogen, allowing hydrogen vehicle fuel to ultimately be sold at a target cost of $4.00 per GGE.

Toyota Executive: Hydrogen currently runs $50 for 300 miles-worth of 'fuel'
EV World
Toyota is one of the most outspoken proponents of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, even ditching its partnership with Tesla Motors to focus on the Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle. But even with generous incentives, fueling hydrogen fuel cell vehicles won't be cheap, with a full tank of the clean-burning fuel costing around $50, reports Ecomento. That's what Toyota's Senior VP of North America Bob Carter said at the recent JP Morgan Auto Conference, claiming that cost estimate comes directly from the Department of Energy.

Sutter hospital harnesses clean fuel cells for power
North Bay Business Journal
Sutter Health's new hospital just north of Santa Rosa will leap into a clean energy future at its planned opening, using secretive Bloom Energy fuel cells to produce about 70 per cent of its electricity needs. The compact fuel cells, sized to generate 375 kilowatts of power continuously, occupy barely 1,000 square feet outside the Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital building.
