If you can prove something like a hydrogen society can work in a city like Tokyo, then it’s a matter of how do they scale it, how do the Japanese ensure that all the ancillary consequences have been addressed, and you only really do this by testing it out.
Japan is moving faster than expected toward an hydrogen energy future. Prime Minister Abe has become a vocal advocate for hydrogen – both to stimulate developments in technology and to help the resource-poor nation lower greenhouse gases. With Japan relying more on fossil fuels since the shuttering of most of its nuclear reactors after the Fukushima disaster almost six years ago, it’s a push that’s gained more urgency.
Toyota is at the forefront of Japan’s efforts to use hydrogen and fuel cells to power cars, heat homes and keep factories running. Other companies pursuing the technology include Panasonic Corp, Toshiba Corp and JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corp. Read More
If this large-scale storage of renewable energy in liquid ammonia succeeds, communities can cover long low wind and solar energy periods
The Battolyser, which will be used as a super battery in a gas power plant, is becoming a reality.
For the first time, TU Delft researchers led by Prof. Fokko Mulder have produced an integrated battery electrolysis system – known as a ‘battolyser’ – that can not only store or supply electricity efficiently as a battery but can also split water into hydrogen and oxygen using electrolysis.

In the body of the study it becomes clear that FCVs do not beat internal combustion engines (ICEs) by much in equivalent fuel economy, And they are not much better in greenhouse gas emissions either, particularly in the liquid hydrogen versions, because of the energy required to transport and compress the hydrogen.
Hydrogen fuel cell cars appear to be making a comeback. But is this real? The comparison in question includes discussion of:
the wider process behind producing hydrogen fuel
the production itself
the transportation of the fuel
The future is a bit cloudy for hydrogen fuel cells (HFC), as electric vehicles have developed quickly and taken significant market share. Read More
Fusion proces: Because of a phenomenon known as quantum tunneling, the hydrogen atoms smash into each other and fuse into helium.
Is Fusion the answer for the new energy world? Scientists create hydrogen plasma, what the sun is made of.
Max Planck researchers finally succeeded in building this breakthrough reactor. And for the first time, the scientists have successfully created hydrogen plasma, the key component to nuclear fusion, and held it in a contained environment. Read More
in 2014, companies in the electric transportation sector accounted for 820 million euro.
In 2014, the number of employments in electric vehicles increased by 25% to 3,200 jobs in the Netherlands.
Dutch companies in circular electric transport are doing a great job. National and international. Important, because they do not only contribute to our economy but they also are part of the solution to the global energy and climate issues. Read More
London Mayer Boris Johnson, made a deal with Toyota, bringing 12 hydrogen cars to the UK Capital by the end of 2015
Boris Johnson, mayor of London, announced that some of the world’s most advanced new hydrogen cars will come to London. He is promoting the cleanest, greenest, energy technology for the future of transport and infrastructure in the capital.
Johnson: “It’s tremendous to drive the hydrogen powered Toyota.”
Toyota made a deal to deliver 12 brand new Mirai hydrogen powered vehicles to London. Four will be taken on by Transport for London to assist with essential engineering and maintenance work carried out between bus stops and Tube stations.
The Mirai is the first hydrogen fuel cell sedan vehicle to be commercially mass produced. By the end of 2015,all 12 of the vehicles will be driving in London, used by private hire fleets and green minded businesses.
Less than 10% of rural populations in Sub-Saharan Africa have access to electricity
Much has changed over the last ten years or so since the renewable power boom began. At the start of the boom, renewable power costswere very expensive and high quality developers were hard to find. Nowadays good core development expertise is available and capital costs have dropped dramatically. Read More
For example: Algae-based biofuel absorbs carbon dioxide as it grows. This biomass energy source wastes CO2 and the wastewater can be used as nutrients. Algae give higher energy per-acre than other bio-fuels and can be grown on land unsuitable for other types of agriculture. Let’s have a look at the potentials of Biomass Power.
Nuclear Fusion is inspired by the sun. Is this the holy grail at the end of the energy process?
Lockheed Martin believesfusion energyis the future. In their opinion fusion energy is the ultimate form of renewable power. For scientists and engineers the sun is their inspiration because it is the biggest natural fusion reactor we know.
