Toyota Commences the Use of Fuel Cell Forklifts

The Japanese group announces today that it has started using two fuel cell forklifts, which have been manufactured by Toyota Industries Corporation, at its Motomachi Plant located in Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture, since January 31, 2017. Fuel cell forklifts, which utilizes hydrogen to generate electricity, have excellent environmental performance as they do not emit CO2 or [...]

Hydrogen City : a vision for 2040

According to Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power, 2040 will be the year that hydrogen fuel cells are the power source of choice for all kinds of devices. However, even if hydrogen fuel cells are a great solution, they are not going to make economic sense for every application. Lithium-ion batteries and future battery chemistries, along with [...]

The improvement in battery technologies will not solve the electric mobility issue

Battery-based solutions are useful for electric mobility. But when you expect too much from the technology, you tend to forget that physics is what it is, i.e. harsh and inescapable, and the economics of the system has its own laws too, as much harsh and inescapable. In 2005, the average cost of kWh for Lithium-Ion [...]

Hydrogen soon produced from algae ?

Tel Aviv University’s researchers discovered how to produce hydrogen from this kind of microscopic. The research was conducted by the School of Plant Sciences and Food Security at the TAU’s Faculty of Life Science and led by Dr. Iftach Yacoby. In the past, researchers were convinced that algae only produce hydrogen for just a few minutes [...]

Tokyo opens Hydrogen Museum

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) and the Tokyo Environmental Public Service Corporation (TEPSC) are pleased to announce the opening of the Hydrogen Museum (Tokyo Suiso-miru). Since July 27th, this center welcomes visitors to promote information on hydrogen energy, through various interactive exhibits. For instance, it's possible to create hydrogen on demand, thanks to a bike linked to an electrolyzer. Located in [...]

Hydrogen gas oceans under seas ?

Rocks formed beneath the ocean floor by fast-spreading tectonic plates may be a large and previously overlooked source of free hydrogen gas (H2), a new Duke University study suggests. The finding could have far-ranging implications since scientists believe H2 might be the fuel source responsible for triggering life on Earth. And, if it were found [...]

Leeds : a future hydrogen city ?

Leeds should be the first city in the UK to convert its gas grid to hydrogen to help meet carbon reduction targets, BBC News reports.  Northern Gas Networks (NGN) claims a nationwide move away from methane to a hydrogen grid was "technically possible and economically viable". The gas distributor said conversion could start in Leeds [...]

Intelligent Energy saved by a £30m loan ?

According to the Telegraph, the British company that aims to revolutionise smartphones by replacing batteries with hydrogen fuel cells seems to have been saved, thanks to a £30m loan from its biggest investor. The money comes from Mediator, the hedge fund from Singaporean tycoon Talal Shakerchi. The deal was arranged as Intelligent Energy came dangerously [...]

Perovskites crystals : a revolution for the fuel cells ?

According to IEEE Spectrum, crystals known as perovskites could improve fuel cells, as they already did for solar cells. By exposing a perovskite to hydrogen fuel, the scientists found that the electrons donated by the hydrogen interacted with the electrons in the crystal. The resulting collective quantum mechanical effect suppressed electron conduction through the perovskite [...]
