Clean vehicles may have a promising future in Australia

Clean Vehicles - Road in Australia

Government aims to show more support for clean vehicles Clean vehicles may be the future of transportation in Australia, according to experts on the matter. Last month, two conferences highlighted the high potential of clean vehicles and how they can be used to make the transportation space more environmentally friendly and efficient. Late last month, the Australian government announced a $390,000 grant for the , which will support the adoption of electric vehicles of all kinds. Australia has been slow to embrace clean vehicles and renewable energy While the global…

Researchers aim to produce renewable hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles

Fuel Cell Vehicles - Research in Lab

Australian researchers launch new project focused on producing hydrogen for fuel cell vehicles Researchers from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization have launched a new $2.5 million project to help develop technology that will provide fuel cell vehicles with the hydrogen they need to operate. The 2-year project aims to produce hydrogen without also generating a large amount of harmful emissions. The project will build upon research already carried out by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, which involved the separating of pure hydrogen from mixed gases. Project…

CSIRO works to develop new membrane technology to help fuel cell vehicles

Fuel Cell Vehicles - Technology and Cars

New technology could make fuel cell vehicles more viable Scientists from Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) are developing a new fuel cell membrane that may be able to make hydrogen production and distribution more viable for fuel cell vehicles. These efforts are part of a two-year project that is focused on producing pure hydrogen through the separation of mixed gases. Notably, the project is looking into converting ammonia into highly pure hydrogen, which can then be stored and used by a fuel cell to generate electrical power.…

Norway aims to help Japan build a hydrogen society

Hydrogen Society - Image of highway

Norway and Australia are looking to provide Japan with hydrogen fuel Norway and Australia are competing with one another to provide the fuel needed for Japan’s efforts to establish a hydrogen society. Japan is working to transition away from conventional forms of energy in favor of using hydrogen fuel cells. These fuel cells are meant to be used to power vehicles, homes, and businesses and can operate without producing any harmful emissions. In order for a hydrogen society to take form in Japan, the country must have reliable access to…

Hydrogen fuel could become a prominent energy export in Australia

Energy developers show strong interest in using solar energy to produce hydrogen fuel Australian energy developers are looking to tap into the growing demand for renewable energy coming from large countries in north Asia by harnessing the power of solar fuels. These fuels, specifically hydrogen fuel, are generated through the use of solar energy, which Australia typically has an abundance of. If developers can be successful in this endeavor, solar fuels may become one of Australia’s largest and most profitable energy exports. Solar fuels may become a significant energy export…

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles may find more traction in the commercial sector

Toyota sees great promise in the commercial space Toyota Australia believes that the commercial sector will play a major role in promoting fuel cell vehicles in the future. These vehicles have yet to see any widespread launch and may struggle to find mainstream success, but automakers have plans to launch these vehicles in the coming years in order to better comply with increasingly strict emissions regulations. Fuel cell vehicles may be able to find significant success in the commercial sector before they find support among consumers, which could have an…
