Global shipment of fuel cells to reach 1.5 million
Hydrogen Fuel News
Navigant Research, a leading market research firm, has released a new report concerning the fuel cell market. The report shows that during 2013 and 2014, the fuel cell market saw the greatest increase in demand for stationary fuel cells that it has ever seen. The increase in demand may be due to 8the growth of distributed generation in the global energy sector. There has been a relatively rapid shift away from the traditional, centralized energy model in many parts of the world, with several countries focusing on clean energy for the sake of security and a more resilient energy grid.

World's first retail hydrogen fuel network to open in California
Silicon Republic
A fuel provider in California has made clean energy history after signing a deal to build the world's first retail hydrogen fuel network for S$25.5 million. While the number of hydrogen-fuelled cars in the world remains few and far between, car producers, particularly in Japan and the U.S., have begun experimenting with the technology in recent years. The company in question is FirstElement, which signed a deal with Air Products to provide the pumps for vehicles with hopes of having 19 fuelling pumps up and running by the start of 2015.

Why coconuts could be the hydrogen storage material of the future
MIT Technology Review
Hydrogen is a potential renewable fuel because it can easily be generated from water using electrolysis. It also burns cleanly to produce water vapor. The hope is that it could also be distributed using the same global network of liquid fuel transport that moves petrol around the planet.
