57Sandia finds hydrogen easier to store, sell than we thought

Setting up a safe and convenient hydrogen infrastructure might not be as difficult as many thought, according to a study by Sandia National Laboratories. In fact, many existing gas stations offer a suitable footprint to store and dispense gaseous hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles. The Sandia study suggests that the current safety code that governs hydrogen fueling stations may be unnecessarily restrictive, and that a new science-based code could optimize hydrogen safety while allowing more places

3Recharge Wrap-up: Formula E comes to London, hydrogen fueling comes to Denmark

California's Low Carbon Fuel Standard Survives

Denmark will get four new hydrogen fueling stations from Air Liquide. The French company will put two of the hydrogen stations in Copenhagen, one in Aalborg and the fourth in Vejle. The new fueling stations are in addition to two already existing sites in Copenhagen and Holstebro. Read more at The Daily Fusion.

34Even without H2 cars, Honda opens UK's first public-access hydrogen station

UK drivers wishing to skip battery electric vehicles while maintaining "zero-emissions" motoring now have a new alternative since Honda has opened the UK's first public-access hydrogen refueling station. Ironically, no automakers offer a fuel cell vehicle in the UK, not even Honda.

42Pike predicts more than 5,200 hydrogen fueling stations operational by 2020

According to a report from Pike Research, more than 5,200 hydrogen fueling stations will be operational worldwide by 2020, up from just 200 stations in 2010. The research firm forecasts that, by the end of 2020, annual investments in hydrogen stations will soar to $1.6 billion, with ten-year (2010 to 2020) investments hitting $8.4 billion globally.

77Mercedes-Benz asks governments for more hydrogen infrastructure

Mercedes-Benz is keen on fuel cell technology and has developed a fuel cell B-Class with an impressive 249-mile range (you should get something for your $849 a month – see it in action here). During a media presentation at the Detroit Auto Show recently, Mercedes announced that a fleet of 70 B-Class vehicles powered by fuel cells will soon be seen on the roads of California as part of an global project to prove that fuel cell vehicles are a viable option as a clean vehicle. The fleet will

64Report: NY Hydrogen station used by GM explodes, closes airport *UPDATE

Hydrogen faces a number of challenges when it comes to supplanting gasoline as the world's transportation fuel of choice, one of the largest of which was underscored by two small explosions at a Rochester, New York refueling station yesterday. According to reports, two people were injured when a spark ignited the fuel during a tank exchange. Praxair driver Robert Scruggs was transported to Strong Hospital with second-degree burns to his hands and face as a result of the incident, and a female Bu

23General Motors to establish pilot hydrogen infrastructure in Hawaii

Hawaii is set to get the first hydrogen fueling infrastructure in the United States thanks to a pilot project announced today by General Motors and The Gas Company. The Gas Company is the local natural gas and propane utility on the island state. Hawaii makes an ideal location for testing new transportation technologies as a result of its isolation, and the relatively small size of the islands means that you can never get all that far from the fueling network.

9Society of Automotive Engineers issues gaseous hydrogen fueling standard

An important part of the work of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) revolves around establishing standards for automotive design. These standards help engineers design in compatibility so that vehicles can co-exist in the automotive eco-system. Last year, SAE established the J1772 standard for electric vehicle charging connectors. Now, as engineers prepare to gather for the annual SAE World Congress in Detroit next week, SAE has published J2601, a protocol for fueling vehicles with gaseou

18Fuel of the future: Hydrogen at the corner gas mart

From an emissions standpoint, hydrogen is one of the cleanest fuels available. Unfortunately, our most abundant source is water, and with current technology, breaking those two H atoms away from that one O atom (electrolysis) uses more energy that it creates.

Add32 operational hydrogen fueling stations open in America, more planned

Like I said, it must be hydrogen week around here. The U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy subsection sent out an email yesterday announcing, among other things, that there are now 32 hydrogen fueling stations open in America, and 19 more are on the way. The growing number of stations doesn't mean that it's easy to go fill up a fuel cell car yet, as 21 of these stations are private, used by transit agencies of private fleets. California has the most hydrogen fuelin
