New method to harvest hydrogen fuel from Sun
ET Auto
Scientists have developed a new and efficient method of producing hydrogen fuel from sunlight and water. Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, led by Michael Gratzel, have developed methods for generating fuels such as hydrogen through solar water splitting. To do this, they either use photoelectrochemical cells that directly split water into hydrogen and oxygen when exposed to sunlight, or they combine electricity-generating cells with an electrolyzer that separates the water molecules.

Fuel cell-powered mobile lights tested, proven, ready for commercial use
ECN Mag
Mobile lighting systems powered by hydrogen fuel cells are cleaner, quieter and now have a proven track record in applications such as nighttime construction, sports and entertainment events and airport operations, making them ready for commercialization and broader use. That's the conclusion reached by researchers at Sandia National Laboratories and others after a multiyear project sponsored by the Department of Energy's Fuel Cell Technologies Office and the Boeing Co. Project support also came from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Altergy Systems and 11 other project partners.

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.

Modified algae make five times more hydrogen
TCE Today
Researchers in Germany have successfully modified an enzyme in microalgae which increases hydrogen production by a factor of five. Hydrogen is often touted as the fuel of the future, as burning it produces only water vapour without other pollutants. By far the most abundant resource is found in water, but the catalysts needed to split water are usually made of precious metals like platinum, making hydrogen production prohibitively expensive. Some microalgae produce hydrogen naturally but in quantities too small for practical application.

Driving Hyundai's no-compromises fuel-cell car
Mother Nature Network
If you're looking for a white-knuckle driving experience, the Hyundai Tucson fuel-cell car isn't for you. The car is well-mannered, and quiet, exceptionally quiet even among the near-silent electric cars. There's not much in the way of compromises, either — the same load space (give or take an inch) as the production Tucson, and 265 miles of range. Hyundai talks about this fuel-cell Tucson as the first "mass-produced" hydrogen car, which spokesman Derek Joyce explained to me means that it's produced on a spur line at the factory in Korea

Fuel cells — starting a smart power revolution
SHFCA
A recent industry report highlights that fuel cell smart power units can deliver tangible benefits for 90 per cent of U.K. households. The report by Ecuity Consulting on behalf of key U.K. fuel cell developers reveals how fuel cell smart power units could act like "mini power stations" in more than 5.3 million U.K. homes, flats and small businesses by 2030. Transferring power generation from energy suppliers into the hands of millions of customers would unlock a set of material benefits for the U.K.'s economy by delivering affordable, secure and clean energy locally.
