Australian scientists are a step closer to converting sunlight and water into fuel
Science Alert
Plants use photosynthesis to turn water, carbon dioxide and sunlight into oxygen and the energy they need to power their systems. And for decades scientists have been trying to replicate this reaction in order to create biological systems that can produce cheap, clean hydrogen fuel. Now, for the first time ever, scientists from the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, have managed to modify a naturally occurring protein, and use it to capture energy from sunlight, a key step in photosynthesis.

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.

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.

Scientists harness hydrogen from water using AAA battery
Tech Gen Mag
The promise of hydrogen as a primary fuel source has been sought after for decades. A clean burning fuel whose only byproduct is water, hydrogen is tailor made for humankind's energy needs. The downside, however, is that hydrogen synthesis in its current form is expensive and burns fossil fuels during manufacture, thus mitigating its status as a green energy source.
