How a nanoparticle could solve renewable energy
The Diamondback
The next big thing in clean energy could be very, very small. University researchers recently found a new method of synthesizing nanoparticle structures, which could lead to further innovation in the field of nanoscience as well as turn hydrogen fuel cells into a more efficient and viable form of clean, renewable energy. Along with his colleagues, Min Ouyang, a physics professor and an author of the study, found a new way to bind nanoparticles together.

Researchers devise new method of producing hydrogen fuel
Hydrogen Fuel News
Researchers from the Glasgow University in Scotland have devised a new way to produce hydrogen fuel from water. The method could serve as a major breakthrough in chemical energy storage, allowing hydrogen to serve as an efficient storage medium for solar and wind power. The research team claims that their method of hydrogen production is as much as thirty times faster than other, more conventional methods of production. It may also be less expensive than modern production methods.

Airbus to research use of fuel cells for commercial airliners
Aerospace Manufacturing and Design
Airbus and South Africa's National Aerospace Centre have agreed to jointly fund research by Hydrogen South Africa (HySA) into the application of fuel cells on airliners. The initial three-year project, which will be undertaken by HySA Systems Competence Centre at its University of the Western Cape research facility, was launched in Cape Town, in the quest to make commercial air transport more environmentally and economically sustainable. With demand for air transport doubling every 15 years, the global airline industry will require nearly 30,000 new aircraft (over 100 seats) by 2032.

Waste to energy project plans in the U.K. progress
Hydrogen Fuel News
The waste to energy (W2E) facility will be known as FM2 (Ferrybridge Multifuel 2) and Multifuel Energy (MEL) — an equal joint venture between Wheelabrator Technologies, a W2E company based in the United States, and SSE a U.K. utility — is developing the project, which will be the second of its kind at the Ferrybridge Power Station site. According to MEL, the new waste-to-energy plant would have the ability to process as much as 570,000 tons of fuels derived from waste, annually.

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.

Water-splitter could make hydrogen fuel on Mars
New Scientist
Making fuel on site for a return trip to Mars may be a step closer. A cunning way to split water into oxygen and hydrogen in two distinct steps could be a boon to both astronauts and future Earthlings, enabling them to use renewable energy sources for making hydrogen fuel. Hydrogen fuel cells can power vehicles ranging from cars to submarines and rockets.

Toyota fuel cell sedan photographed testing in Southern California
Green Car Reports
Pity the poor automotive spy photographer. She spends months in Death Valley with an expensive camera, only for her paying clients to be swamped with cellphone shots snapped by eager readers and sent in for free or posted on social media. Which is (more or less) how we come to see our first shots of a preproduction Toyota Fuel Cell Sedan testing on a freeway in Southern California, ahead of its U.S. launch next year.

Say hello to Hy-Cycle, Australia's first hydrogen fuel cell bicycle
Auto Blog
Fuel-cell bicycles. It's an idea that comes around every couple of years. Or about seven. It's a complicated process, but then again, so is procuring a little hydrogen. The newest version of the two-wheeled hydrogen fuel cell vehicle is from Australia's University of New South Wales. The school's researchers are touting the Hy-Cycle, a hydrogen fuel-cell bicycle that can go about 80 miles on a full tank, which is about $2 worth of hydrogen.
