ab8_report_2015-CoverRefueling program may fall short of demand

Hydrogenics

The State of California is becoming more optimistic about early fuel cell vehicle sales, based on a survey of automakers. The fuel cell vehicle fleet is estimated to reach 34,300 by the end of 2021 (see chart). The estimate is high enough to raise concerns that California’s aggressive fueling station deployment program may fall short … Read more

Tesla-ModelX

Tesla: Another US$ 750 Million Capital Increase

A capital increase again: around US$ 750 million going to Tesla. Whether this will help provide the cash needed to build the Gigafactory for batteries – which is said to cost up to US$ 5 billion – seems doubtful. The increase also left a bitter aftertaste, as Morgan Stanley was the underwriter (placed the shares) … Read more

cryogenic-refueling-BMWMunich’s Two Ways of H2 Refueling

The work on developing ultra-cold hydrogen was abandoned together with the H2 combustion engine in 2006 – at least, that is what everyone believed. After years of uncertainty, it is now clear that BMW is still holding on to cryogenic technology. Proof of that is the inauguration of a new pump at the multi-energy refueling … Read more

Audi A7 Sportback h-tron quattroAudi Q6 as Fuel-Cell Crossover Car

At the end of June 2015, Audi signaled that it also wanted to develop its Q6 as a fuel-cell version. The VW subsidiary had already announced the new crossover car with an internal combustion engine at the beginning of last year, after it presented the A7 Sportback h-tron Quattro (see figure) in Los Angeles at … Read more

Graph-2aFuel-Cell Cars and Their GHG Emissions

In 2012, the transport sector’s share in overall greenhouse gas emissions was 19.7% across the 28 member states of the European Union, making it the second-largest producer of greenhouse gases after the energy sector. To achieve the EU Commission’s climate protection targets for the transport industry, these emissions need to be lowered by 70% compared … Read more

95712The Long Search for Platinum Replacements

Regarding fuel cells, a challenging and important issue are still the catalysts. To a considerable degree, they determine both the performance of stacks and their price. Currently, the most different nanoparticles are being examined in the most different structural combinations. This is also true for the field of water splitting, where catalysts are employed in … Read more

Panorama_Ewald-webLocal Design to Enhance Regenerative Energy Use

The biggest challenge of the energy sector transformation will be the spatial and temporal separation of production and consumption. Such a global issue may seem to require global or at least national solutions. The Energiepark Ewald study for the Hydrogen City Herten in Germany shows … Read more

Fuel-Cell iPhone Nothing but Hot Air

H2-international has long since refrained from spreading any rumors or participating in any speculation about fuel cells for mobile devices, even if it was about an iPhone which allegedly could be powered by Intelligent Energy modules. It is precisely for this reason that we will do no more than quote roby111, who posted a pretty … Read more

Methanos-webPower-to-Gas – Microbes to Cut Costs

Micro-organisms provide more flexibility than common catalysts, and the methane produced by them is relatively pure. Additionally, the investment costs for Power-to-Gas systems can be lowered by using transformers and power as well as gas network connections of already existing biogas and wastewater treatment plants. This field of study, however, still requires more research to … Read more

ZBT_N2teligenceZBT Uses New PAFC to Create Air Low on O2

Since the end of last May, the Center for Fuel Cell Technology (ZBT) in Duisburg has had a phosphoric acid fuel cell (PAFC) in operation, which supplies the research institute with power and heat. The 100-kW unit even took on three additional tasks: It reduces energy costs, it serves as the basis for scientific studies … Read more

Greenpeace-wind-gasPower-to-Gas for Cheaper Electricity

Greenpeace Energy presented a new study in August of 2015 according to which “wind gas” (gas produced with the help of excess power from renewable energy – hydrogen or methane) could contribute to strengthening the transformation of the energy sector. The 97-page comparison of future power supply with and without … Read more
