picture Ballard Steps on the Gas
After the second-quarter figures from Ballard Power Systems came in at the end of June, there were several good news that underline which huge potential the Canadian fuel cell manufacturer can tap in China and Japan. The share price jumped more than 60 percent. The most recent business Ballard won over as a partner was … Read more
picture Plug Power: Change in Accounting Principles
The new non-GAAP accounting is still creating confusion. Based on non-GAAP, Plug managed to increase revenue in the second quarter to above USD 36 million. But although the USD 13 million loss that the company reported for the same period was indeed a reduction compared to growth, it continues to have a negative impact on … Read more
picture A Clean, Quiet and Comfortable Fuel Cell Car
Hyundai has been on the market with its mass-produced ix35 fuel cell car since 2013. Last year, 250 units were shipped to Europe, with 120 sold or leased to German businesses alone. And this year, Linde established BeeZero, which ordered as many as 50 of them for its vehicle-sharing service in Munich. Even though the … Read more
picture A Journey South in a Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell
Hyundai is one of the few carmakers in the transportation sector to have already made use of the fuel cell as a mass production feature in road transport. Its European subsidiary organized a several-day trip from Bergen in Norway to Bolzano in Italy to offer drivers from across the continent plenty of opportunities to test … Read more
picture CPN – Great Potential but Little Traction?
The UPS industry was supposed to be the fourth pillar of the German National Innovation Program Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology (NIP). Instead, the niche market considered to be an innovative force in the industry has yet to offer more than a glimpse into its possibilities. Industry network Clean Power Net (CPN) has tried to … Read more
picture How to Produce Hydrogen Through Photosynthesis
Hydrogen is thought to be a highly efficient and an almost perfect solution for energy storage. And its importance is growing in light of the volatility of renewable energies. But the conventional and rather complicated hydrogen generation through solar energy and subsequent electrolysis reduces the efficiency of the process. An interesting alternative could be artificial … Read more
picture How to Retire the Diesel Engine
German association Solar Mobility (BSM) should at least be known to those who attend automotive or energy trade shows from time to time. Since its founding in 1989, the BSM has had a large exhibit at many of these events and offers a variety of vehicle types – from solar-powered cars to electric buses – … Read more
picture Three New Hydrogen Filling Stations
Since this summer, Germany has been able to offer eco-conscious drivers two more opportunities to fill up their hydrogen tanks. The first new station went online in Wuppertal on June 19 and is viewed as the prototype for the planned nationwide H2 infrastructure, according to the Clean Energy Partnership. The project supported by EUR 670,000 … Read more
picture Areva H2Gen Started Production
On June 24, 2016, French technology supplier Areva H2Gen inaugurated its first production facilities for PEM electrolysis systems in the presence of the country’s environment minister, Ségolène Royal. The new buildings are in Les Ulis near Paris, France, at the company’s main plant, which has seen a doubling in staff in the two years … Read more
picture Germany Launches Next Phase of Energy Transition
On July 8, the Renewable Energy Sources Act 2017 (EEG 2017) was passed by both houses of the German parliament. Its most important addition is that from 2017 on, “rather than being fixed by the government, future rates of renewables funding will be determined by the market by means of dedicated auction schemes,” the economy … Read more
Multi-Energy Power Plant Awaits Approval
Construction of MEKS, Sperenberg’s multi-energy power plant, now entirely hinges on state government approval. In mid-July, the mayors of the four German towns involved signed a contract for the establishment of a community working group. But whereas local authorities would certainly welcome MEKS, the ones at state level have put a hold on the project, … Read more

Premium entry: USD 395 / 359 Euro per year incl. subscription & logo in the e-journal, on the homepage and in the newsletter

But if you book a new listing before end of the year you will get the former cheaper prices.
