Emissions drop in the U.S. thanks to renewable energy, efficiency, and economic strain
Hydrogen Fuel News
The U.S. has been making efforts in recent years to cut down on the emissions it is responsible for by reducing its consumption of energy. This endeavor has been slow-going, but the country has managed to make some progress by supporting different forms of renewable energy. The U.S. remains strongly focused on the use of fossil-fuels, however, which is somewhat counterproductive to the country's emissions reduction goals.

U.K. and Korea sign agreement to advance fuel cell technology
Imperial College London
An agreement that signifies a new phase of cooperation between the U.K. and Korea in hydrogen and fuel cell technology was recently signed. A fuel cell is a type of technology that is more efficient at generating electrical energy from fuel sources such as natural gas and hydrogen. This makes the technology more economical and beneficial to use, especially in a climate where energy resources are becoming harder to recover, making energy generation more expensive.
