Hyundai first to offer hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to Canadian public
CNW
Demonstrating leadership in implementing advanced engineering and zero-emissions technology, Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. announced that it will be the first automotive company to make hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles available to the Canadian public and launched a dedicated website to find its first customer. The Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) will be available to Canadians on a 3-year lease beginning in early 2015 in the Vancouver area.

Protons fuel graphene prospects
Nanowerk
Published in the journal Nature ("Proton transport through one-atom-thick crystals"), the discovery could revolutionise fuel cells and other hydrogen-based technologies as they require a barrier that only allow protons — hydrogen atoms stripped off their electrons — to pass through. In addition, graphene membranes could be used to sieve hydrogen gas out of the atmosphere, where it is present in minute quantities, creating the possibility of electric generators powered by air.

Researchers design new catalysts for hydrogen fuel production
Hydrogen Fuel News
Tufts University School of Engineering, along with various other collaborators, has developed new catalysts that could lead to low cost production of new fuels, such as hydrogen. The catalysts are comprised of a structure of single gold atoms, which are bound with oxygen and sodium or potassium atoms supported by non-reactive silica materials. A team of researchers has demonstrated that these catalysts are able to perform on par with conventional catalysts that make use of platinum.

Volkswagen is ready for a hydrogen-powered future with Passat and Golf SportWagen HyMotion
CNet
The future of the automobile is electric, but the question remains: Exactly where will those electrons come from? More and more cars are pulling that juice from batteries, but hydrogen is potentially an even better source. When the stuff is run through a simple fuel cell the electricity flows, just like a battery, with the big difference being you can fully recharge in just minutes. And, the only emission is water.

European cities & bus OEM's demonstrate commitment to fuel cell bus commercialization
Ballard
Recently at the 7th Stakeholder Forum of the "Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking" (FCH JU), representatives from five major European bus manufacturers signed a Letter of Understanding (LOU) outlining their commitment towards the commercialization and deployment of fuel cell buses in urban public transport. Participating bus manufacturers were Daimler Buses (EvoBus), MAN, Solaris Bus & Coach, Van Hool and VDL Bus & Coach.

The fuel cell vehicles of the LA Auto Show
Ars Technica
The commercially viable hydrogen fuel cell vehicle has long been the white whale for automakers. Using hydrogen as a fuel means a car could produce nothing but electricity and water. Hydrogen fuel cells also offer greater energy density than battery-powered cars, and they can be refilled faster than their battery-only brethren. But (there's always a but), fuel-cell vehicles lack supporting infrastructure; there are only nine hydrogen-filling stations in the state of California currently.

Toyota to build Mirai Fuel Cell Vehicle at former Lexus LFA plant
Motor Authority
Sadly, Toyota's advanced Motomachi plant in Japan that was previously responsible for the Lexus LFA supercar won't be tooled up to produce another carbon fiber-bodied performance vehicle. Instead, it will soon start churning out Toyota's new hydrogen-powered Mirai fuel cell vehicle. The information was revealed to Automotive News (subscription required) by Toyota sales exec Masamoto Maekawa.

Linde's fuel-cell project at BMW Group achieves positive first results
SHD Logistics
The initial interim balance for the project was revealed at the beginning of November, almost a year after the official handover of four tugger trains and five fork lift trucks with fuel-cell hybrid drives to the BMW Group plant in Leipzig. Based on experience gained in the last few months, effective technical adaptations have already been made which have subsequently improved the reliability of the trucks.

Can fuel cells find a home in the data center?
GigaOm
Recently at a ribbon cutting in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Microsoft officially announced that biogas was flowing to fuel cells to power its experimental data center there. The data center is located by the Dry Creek water treatment plant and has direct access to biogas harvested from the facility to power the fuel cells that are in turn powering its data center. The whole system is completely renewable.
