Makes its own hydrogen fuel — Mercedes-Benz vision G-Code concept
The Green Optimistic
Unveiled at the opening of the Beijing Product Engineering Centre, the Mercedes-Benz Vision G-Code Concept looks like most any futuristic vehicle, except that, even paint-deep, this isn't any ordinary hydrogen fuel vehicle. You'll note, for starters, that it would be entirely incorrect to call the Mercedes-Benz Vision G-Code a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. Like hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, the Vision G-Code uses hydrogen fuel as its principal source of fuel, but not in a fuel cell. Instead, the Vision G-Code burns hydrogen in a supercharged internal combustion engine (ICE).

Jet-fueled electricity at room temperature: New fuel cell can run without high heat
Phys.org
University of Utah engineers developed the first room-temperature fuel cell that uses enzymes to help jet fuel produce electricity without needing to ignite the fuel. These new fuel cells can be used to power portable electronics, off-grid power and sensors. A study of the new cells appears online today in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Catalysis.

Toyota FCV rallies to the hydrogen cause as zero car
Auto Blog
It's been two decades since Toyota dominated the World Rally Championship with its Celica Turbo 4WD. But recently, Toyota hit the rally stage in a very different vehicle. That, as you can see, is the Japanese automaker's Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV), which is still in its prototype phase. We're still at least half a year away from seeing the FCV in production trim, but the model has already been pressed into duty as the "zero car" at the Shinshiro Rally, the last round of the Japanese Rally Championship.

First truley 'Green Fuel' forklift points to emission free future
Materials Handling World Magazine
In what's seen as a milestone in the development of forklift truck design and technology, a unique collaboration has seen the production of a hydrogen fuel cell-powered truck that relies entirely on renewable energy sources. Similar projects have used hydrogen fuel generated using fossil fuels but a research effort involving Briggs Equipment and Honda has seen the development of a fully integrated system that generates hydrogen from solar power via an on-site electrolyser.

New Microsoft data center is powered by fuel cells
Hydrogen Fuel News
Microsoft has built a new, zero-carbon data center in Cheyenne, Wyoming, with the help of Siemens and FuelCell Energy. The companies built the data center to accommodate Microsoft's growing data storage and management needs, but also to showcase how such facilities can be completely powered by renewable energy. Data centers are notoriously energy hungry, requiring large quantities of electrical power in order to remain operational for extended periods of time.

First commercial-scale solar hydrogen fuel generator opens in U.K.
The Green Optimistic
Hydrogen fuel can indeed be produced via electrolysis, which requires connection to some kind of power source, be it a coal-fired power plant or an array of solar panels, and this raises a question... "Renewable energy, such as wind power and solar power, are typically intermittent, so how can they be used as a reliable source for hydrogen fuel generation?"
