Building out the infrastructure, such as securing renewable hydrogen, and getting fuel costs down for the time when hydrogen is no longer included with the car, is a massive undertaking.
By year-end 2017, a total of 6,475 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have been sold globally since 2013 when the vehicles first became available commercially. This is disclosed by Information Trends in its upcoming report, "Global Market for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles, 2018."
Kyree Leary for Futurism: Eco Marine Power has announced plans to test their patented solar sails next year. These EnergySails would utilize solar and wind energy simultaneously.
Illinois Doctor Converts His BMW To Electric Power Using Nine U.S. Battery 12-Volt Deep-Cycle Batteries
U of Cambridge via Science Daily: A new design of algae-powered fuel cells that is five times more efficient than existing plant and algal models, as well as being potentially more cost-effective to produce and practical to use, has been developed.
Joseph Flaig for Institution of Mechanical Engineers: Electric cars worldwide will soon have 10 times the total storage capacity of stationary batteries and should be thought of as "batteries on wheels" to solve renewable energys storage problem, an expert has said.
AP via LA Times: "Were going to electrify even our most iconic vehicles," he said at Cobo Center. "The only question is, will the customer be there with us?"
Chelsea Gohd for Futurism: Solar-powered cars have been thought of by many as an impossible pipedream. But the innovators behind Lightyear One, a fully solar-powered vehicle to be released in 2019, just won an award for their design.
Peter Valdes-Dapena for CNN Money: In 2018, electric cars will finally turn the corner from curious niche product to become a viable option for America's families. Next year will mark a turning point in the ultimate electrification of America's roads.
Futurism: The Byron Bay Railroad Company has created the first fully solar-powered train. While it doesn't travel long distances, it does prove that the Sun is a viable source of energy for passenger transportation.
Alice Bell for The Guardian: A technique has been devised that allows electricity to flow directly from solar panels to electrified train tracks to the trains themselves making solar powered trains more feasible than ever before
Akshat Rathi for Quartz: Electrochaea has also figured out a way to power the whole enterprise with the excess green energy produced during particularly sunny and windy days that otherwise would have gone to waste, because there would have been no way to store it.
Rhett Alain for Wired: How much power and how much energy (those are two different things) could you get from solar panels on the trailer?
Fisker Inc.'s Scientists File Patents on Superior Energy Density Tech, Shattering Conventional Thought on EV Range and Charge Times
Fiskers scientists have reached an early breakthrough in solid-state technology. The wider team includes the co-founder of solid-state battery technology pioneer, Sakti3 - a first inventor of the seminal patents. Implications for Fiskers vehicles beyond 2023 - as well as the larger EV industry as a whole - are significant. The patent includes claims over novel materials and manufacturing processes that are critical in achieving the required energy density, power and cost targets that are paramount for the widespread use of electric vehicles.
Bonnie Christian for Wired: At this years WIRED Energy conference, some of the sector's most innovative early-stage companies pitched their ideas.
