Department of Energy backs four innovative hydrogen energy projects with more than $7 million in funding

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Industry

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced new funding for innovative alternative energy projects in California, Washington and Oregon. The projects in question aim to make advances in hydrogen storage technology. Storage is one of the major issues preventing the large scale adoption and commercialization of hydrogen fuel. For transportation, inefficient storage tanks have delayed the launch of hydrogen-powered vehicles until very recently. Each project has a life of 3 years and aims to make hydrogen storage more affordable and efficient. The DOE will be funneling more than $7 million…

CSA International begins testing safety of hydrogen fuel cells, raises concerns

Hydrogen Storage

When it comes to hydrogen-powered transportation, safety is a major priority. The safety of hydrogen fuel cells has been at the crux of the criticisms surrounding the technology. While cost and the lack of an expansive fuel network have kept the technology from mass commercialization, consumers have been wary of fuel cells because of the volatility of hydrogen gas. CSA International, a global product testing organization, has been conducting experiments on fuel cells and has found that the people’s concerns regarding safety may be well justified. The organization has not…
