Roush Technologies has been working on flexible fuel vehicles for the last few years. Unlike most manufacturers, which seem to be focusing on using either ethanol or gasoline in their flex-fuel vehicles, Roush Technologies has been integrating compressed hydrogen power into normal internal combustion engines. The latest example to come from the company is based on a Ford Transit van and is being shown at the Cenex-hosted UK National Low Carbon Vehicle event at Millbrook Proving Ground. The Trans

We've written about ITM Power and their plans to build a home hydrogen generating station several times before. The British company now has a prototype unit running in a Sheffield along with a Ford Focus that has been converted to run on hydrogen. The hydrogen generator includes an electrolyzer to produce H2 from water, and the hydrogen in the demonstration house is being used as a vehicle fuel, as well as for heating, cooling and other functions. Powering the generator is possible through the u

Remember the home electrolyser "breakthrough" that ITM Power was all extcited about a few months ago? Well, it's back, and ITM is now describing how the rest of the home will operate with the system. The basic idea is that the electrolyser will make hydrogen using "increasingly available from wind, wave, solar or hydro-electric power" (or, of course, normally-produced electricity) and water. The hydrogen could then be used in heating boilers, cooking stoves/ovens as well as a bi-fuel vehicle, or
