As we celebrate National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day on October 8th, it seems appropriate to take a look back over some of the new products introduced over the last year that have helped enforce the impact and potential fuel cell and hydrogen technologies can make on the world.
Scientists in Japan develop a fully planar device that converts sunlight into a laser beam, which can efficiently power hydrogen fuel generators.
The idea behind 'Power-to-X' is to convert water and carbon dioxide to renewable fuels and chemical building blocks. To get this done, we need to develop and upscale new technology.
This is the age of fast automobiles and autonomous vehicles. And the depleting natural reservoirs is a pressing issue. Thus, investors are placing bets on hydrogen to be next-generation fuel.
Heliogen will be able to replace the fuel that generates greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes with solar energy for the first time. For instance, cement production - one of the industrial processes well suited to Heliogen's technology - alone accounts for more than 7 percent of global CO2 emissions.
Bloom Energy Announces Hydrogen-Powered Energy Servers to Make Always-On Renewable Electricity a Reality
Today, Bloom Energy announced a new capability that efficiently delivers always-on, 100% renewable electric power with no emissions 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
Both technology and economics are changing in favour of hydrogen and fuel cells. In addition to these two the other major positive for hydrogen is the policy change.
Joi Scientific and New Brunswick Power to Develop World's First Hydrogen-Powered Distributed Electricity Grid
New Brunswick could see up to 30 distributed Hydrogen 2.0 production stations deployed for zero-carbon baseload generation
AFC Energy is preparing for the commercialisation of fuel cell-based EV Charge solutions to meet the growing demand for environmentally friendly power in the EV market.
These new commitments will serve the growing needs of the hydrogen mobility market in California and help enable and complement the deployment of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and support the hydrogen merchant market across the state.
SPI's expanded range reflects the growth of energy innovation through the addition of ESI, Hydrogen + Fuel Cells North America, and the Smart Energy Microgrid Marketplace.
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."
Katherine Lin for NBC News MACH: A team of researchers in Australia have created an experimental paint that attracts water molecules from the air and chops them up to produce hydrogen.
Science Daily: Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as "exhaust."
The fossil fuel fight goes on for USC scientists as they develop a new method for creating reversible hydrogen storage based on methanol, with no carbon emissions
