CHFCA Member News: PowerDisc
CHFCA
David Leger, PowerDiscès President & CEO (and a CHFCA Board Member), was named one of Canada's Clean50 for 2015 in recognition of his outstanding work in clean technology.

PowerDisc was selected as a participant in the Canadian Technology Accelerator Program, sponsored by Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs & International Trade, to help PowerDisc access sales/market opportunities in the lucrative U.S. marketplace.

These two positive developments are indicative of PowerDisc's progress and momentum inside the lab to commercialize a fuel cell stack/system that will reduce costs by as much as 30% and allow our products to compete head-to-head (without subsidies) with internal combustion engines in many applications.

New technique gets pure hydrogen out of splitting water
Ars Technica
Continued concerns about global warming have boosted work on alternative fuel sources that reduce emissions. Hydrogen is an appealing, clean-burning fuel. Currently, most hydrogen comes from the processing of fossil fuels, which produces carbon dioxide as a byproduct. However, the electrolysis of water produces hydrogen without the release of greenhouse gases — provided the electricity used in the process comes from renewable energy.

Report claims renewable energy can be cost competitive in every country
Hydrogen Fuel News
The International Energy Agency has released a report that suggests wind and solar energy can be cost competitive in every country. The report highlights recent trends in the global energy market as well as advances that have been made in the renewable energy space in terms of technology. As wind turbines and solar panels have become more efficient, the costs associated with both wind and solar energy have decreased, making these forms of clean power more attractive.

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.

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.

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.

2015 Hyundai Tucson fuel cell a gem
USA Today
Hyundai likes to say the 2015 Tucson SUV fuel-cell electric vehicle is mass-produced. But before your alternative-fuel heart skips a beat, "mass-produced" in this case means that the fuel-cell models are built at the same Ulsan, South Korea, factory as the gasoline models. That means the relatively small number of fuel-cell models piggyback onto the low-cost, high-output production of the gasoline model.

Hydrogen fuel cell maker offers new financing packages
Hydrogen Fuel News
Plug Power, a leading developer of hydrogen fuel cells, has partnered with M&T Bank in order to offer new financing packages to its first-time customers. Fuel cells are becoming more popular for those interested in renewable energy, but these energy systems are not inexpensive. Fuel cells make use of costly materials that makes them a sizable investment for the companies that want to use them. As such, many companies opt to use other forms of energy despite the fact that fuel cells could be better suited for their needs.

Toyota quietly rolls 2015 fuel cell car into town
USA Today
One automaker's vision of the transportation future sat parked under a broiling sun not far from AT&T Park baseball stadium. But the blackout tint on the sedan's windows wasn't to keep the interior cool, but hidden. Toyota quietly rolled into town with the newest addition to its eco-conscious fleet, the 2015 FCV. That stands for Fuel Cell Vehicle and translates to hydrogen power. The car hits dealers in the middle of next year, but the company remains mum on pricing and what surrounds the passengers.

A nanosized hydrogen generator emerges
Engineering.com
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energyès (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have created a small scale Èhydrogen generatorÈ that uses light and a two-dimensional graphene platform to boost production of the hard-to-make element. The research also unveiled a previously unknown property of graphene. The two-dimensional chain of carbon atoms not only gives and receives electrons, but can also transfer them into another substance.
