More California Gas Stations Can Provide Hydrogen than Previously Thought, Sandia Study Says

A study by Sandia researchers concludes that a number of existing gas stations in California can safely store and dispense hydrogen, suggesting a broader network of hydrogen fueling stations may be within reach. The report examined 70 commercial gasoline stations in the state and sought to determine which, if any, could integrate hydrogen fuel, based […]

More Efficient Fuel Cells under Development by Engineers

Solar power and other sources of renewable energy can help combat global warming but they have a draw­back: they don’t produce energy as predictably as generating plants powered by oil, coal, or natural gas. Solar panels only produce electricity when the sun is shining, and wind turbines are only productive when the wind is brisk. […]

High-Efficiency Solar Thermochemical Reactor for Hydrogen Production

On June 16th, the Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technology Office (FCTO) announced $20 million for 10 R&D projects to advance technologies that can economically produce and deliver hydrogen to power fuel cells from diverse, domestic, and renewable resources thereby enabling substantial reductions in energy use and carbon emissions. Advancing these technologies is critical to […]
