Hydrogen cars: Toyota aims to become the next Tesla
Investor Place
Toyota is planning a launch of "society-changing" hydrogen cars, which came as a shot across the bow of Elon Musk's Tesla. However, hydrogen-fueled vehicles are not likely to deal a knock-out blow to competitors, which means Toyota's attempt to outflank Tesla may fail in the short term. Toyota plans to debut its new Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV) in Japan next spring, adding select U.S. and European markets later next year.

Where will EU Energy and Transport Policy come from in 2014 -2020?
H2Euro
Over the last month various sketches of a new EU Commission surfaced but just before this monthly update was issued it is likely that there will be a UK Energy and Climate Commissioner who probably will need to confer closely with a Latvian Commissioner for "Energy Union," the result of a long term effort of former former EC president Jacques Delors and former EU Parliament president Jerzy Buzek. Transport might end up in Czech hands and Environment will see a Danish Commissioner.

University of NSW launches hydrogen-powered push bike
The Sydney Morning Herald
It's been a long wait for the hydrogen car and while all the major manufacturers have been grappling with technical and fuel distribution issues, a chemical engineering group at the University of NSW has given us the hydrogen-powered push bike. The Hi-Cycle can cruise at 20km/h for a maximum range of 125 kilometres. That's a bit like travelling from Strathfield to the CBD and back five days a week and only refilling once — assuming you don't pedal at all.

Japan to use hydrogen power at 2020 Tokyo Olympics
Silicon Republic
The Tokyo Olympics in six years' time aims to use the clean energy potential of hydrogen to power parts of its operation in a bid to promote the technology. The harnessing of the power of one of the most abundant elements in the universe is still far from being viable as an efficient source of renewable energy but the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee hope to at least power the Olympic Village, according to the Japan News.

Efficient and economical energy storage would be a game-changer
The Australian
Cheap, efficient energy storage systems could fundamentally change the global energy game world in coming decades, affecting everything from power grids to ­vehicle engines. There are plenty of energy storage game-changers looming, but questions remain over which will win out and how fast the rate of change will be. Giant-scale manufacture of lithium-ion batteries, the small, fast-charging cells used in our smartphones, is one approach to energy storage.
