Through direct molecular evidence of the chemical transformations at the surface of fuel cell materials, scientists can find ways to optimize cell efficiency.
Jülich– They waited for it to achieve a lifetime of 100,000 hours before gradually bringing their lifetime test to a close a few days ago: researchers from Forschungszentrum Jülich developed a fuel cell and operated it at a temperature of 700 °C for more than 11 years.
The Douglas County Public Utility District and other PUDs in Washington could soon have the authority to produce and sell a new type of clean energy under a Senate-approved bill introduced by 12th District state Sen. Brad Hawkins.
Recently, the first phase of the Hydrogen Storage Materials Project of Hydrogen Yangxin Materials Co., Ltd. was successfully completed marking the industrialization of “organic liquid hydrogen storage technology” and a substantial step has been taken to lay the foundation for the large-scale production of hydrogen storage materials in China.
Munich– In Germany, 17 public hydrogen refueling stations went into operation in 2018. This makes Germany the world’s second largest network with 60 public filling stations. It is only surpassed by Japan with 96 public gas stations.
New Zealand: Hydrogen as an Energy Source Identified as R&D Opportunity for the Queenstown Lakes DistrictFebruary 15, 2019
Producing hydrogen as an alternative source of energy has been identified as a major research and development (R&D) opportunity for the district, according to a report commissioned by Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE).
Varanger Kraft Group Creates New Subsidiary, Varanger KraftHydrogen AS to Run Research Project HaeolusFebruary 14, 2019
Varanger Kraft Group has decided to organize the development work on hydrogen in a separate company.
Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) has approved an application from J-Power Latrobe Valley Pty Ltd (J-Power) for a Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D) that will investigate the potential for converting coal to hydrogen.
E-Trucks Europe is building hydrogen-electric hybrid garbage trucks. The driveline of these garbage trucks is 100% electric, which means they are quiet and do not emit greenhouse gases and particulate matter. To extend the range, a hydrogen system is installed on these vehicles, which converts hydrogen into electricity with pure water as a waste product. In this way, the vehicles can be used 24 hours a day and remain silent and clean.
