WSU team aims to build the first hydrogen fuel station in Washington

Team of researchers and students to develop a new hydrogen fuel station Researchers and students from the Washington State University are working together to raise the funds needed to build what they believe will be the state’s first hydrogen fuel station. Washington is a relatively small clean transportation market, with virtually no fuel cell vehicles available to the public. Washington State University hopes to prepare the state for the inevitable coming of these vehicles, however, by helping establish a hydrogen infrastructure. Using renewable energy to produce hydrogen will be a…

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have an unofficial curfew in Japan

Japan’s lack of hydrogen fuel stations means that the use of fuel cell vehicles is limited Toyota has released its new fuel cell vehicle, the Mirai, in Japan, but the automaker may find it difficult to promote the vehicle among consumers. While Toyota has already reported that demand for the Mirai exceeded its expectations, leading to an increase in production, many consumers have yet to show interest in fuel cell vehicles, largely due to the lack of a hydrogen fuel infrastructure in the country. Without numerous hydrogen stations available, consumers…

Supermarket chain announces its first hydrogen fuel station in the UK

Sainsbury will become the first supermarket chain in Britain to sell hydrogen to motorists. While governments are encouraging consumers to consider purchasing green vehicles, like hydrogen fuel celled cars, the trouble in many countries, like the United Kingdom, is that the refueling infrastructure to support the mass adoption of these vehicles hasn’t been developed, but now with Britain’s large supermarket chain Sainsbury announcing the opening of its first hydrogen station, the first small steps toward solving this problem are being taken in the UK. Sainsbury’s Hendon Store is to be…

California continues to build its hydrogen fuel infrastructure

State commits $50 million to building 28 new hydrogen stations California has plans to bolsters its hydrogen fuel infrastructure in the coming months. The state will be spending $50 million to build 28 new hydrogen fuel stations that will be open to the public. These fuel stations will be located in dense population centers like Riverside and Ontario. The state hopes to have a modest infrastructure in place by the time fuel cell vehicles see commercial release in 2015 and this infrastructure will continue to expand over the coming years….

New ground breaking in Michigan for hydrogen fuel station

Since hydrogen fuel began gaining momentum, the need for an sufficient infrastructure has been clear. Many of the challenges inherent in hydrogen fuel cells are being overcome as scientists discover new ways to make them more efficient, safe and inexpensive, but infrastructure is one goal they cannot accomplish on their own. More states around the U.S. are beginning to see the appeal of hydrogen fuel, and some are going so far as to begin construction of hydrogen refueling stations. Michigan is one of these states. The Grand Blanc Township of…

Oahu…The Next Iceland?

Testing the viability of hydrogen powered cars has been something of a challenge. There are relatively few places in the U.S. that are suited for the testing of vehicles is often held back by the lack of sufficient access to hydrogen. Refueling stations in the nation are sparse. Car manufacturers can opt to procure the hydrogen needed to extensive testing themselves, but this will provide little analytic data regarding the commercial viability of the fuel. Many experts in the field have long held the belief that in order for hydrogen…
