John Harrington for 247WallStreet: Mazda said in a press release that the engine technology will be up to 30% more efficient than the carmaker's conventional systems. It hopes to have the system ready for 2019 models.
The Hydrogen Station Equipment Performance device, or HyStEP, could reduce the time to commission new stations from months to just one week.
Amyris' innovative bioscience technology directly converts plant sugars into hydrocarbon molecules to create the renewable fuel, and the technology enables the operations of the Amyris-Total partnership to deliver the fuel from "field to wing."
While an electric vehicle may go 200 or 250 miles without a charge a combination of fuel cell and fuel together with a balance of system could travel 500 or even 800 miles depending upon the specific requirements and design.
Currently, the biggest limitation for drivers thinking about making the transition to EVs is the need for a reliable network of charging facilities to increase the range of these vehicles and to alleviate any fear of "running out of juice." Surveys indicate that ease and accessibility of charging rank at the top of potential buyers' concerns about electric vehicles.
The system consists of a hydrogen tank, a pressure regulator two cut off valves, a distribution manifold and 4 fuel injectors.
Like the dinosaur in the Jeep mirror in the movie Jurassic Park, I think it the prospect of low carbon hydrocarbon fuel is a lot closer than it appears. Unlike the dinosaur, it's not scary. It's a good future.
A succinct-analysis of the increasingly widely discussed alternative and renewable energy universe serves to bring the Phoenix "Hydrogen Economy" initiative (with its REPLACEMENT energy status) into its special perspective.
With more than 40 sessions covering everything from producers to users of hydrogen, the conference featured its most relevant content to date, presented by some of the biggest names inside and outside the industry.
What follows is not meant to bash EVs, plug-ins or biofuels. And yes, hydrogen faces substantial challenges, chief among them vehicle cost and fueling infrastructure. But we need to be honest about all the options, or risk falling down the rabbit hole with Alice.
Until now, acoustic or sound energy has not been used effectively to impose thrust or force on an object for purposes of providing useful work.
E-machines have no more maintenance than a bicycle. They are simple, efficient, safe and fun to ride
Spring has been a busy period for hydrogen fueling stations, with five stations recently opening worldwide.
e85 Flex Fuel Vehicles are becoming more and more popular as the gas prices continue to rise. e85 is defiantly going to be a major relief for the United States fuel problem.
FFVs can be fueled with 100 percent gasoline up to 85 percent ethanol. Fueling between the two products is driver transparent; no switches need to be flipped or buttons turned.

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
