Yanmar Holdings Co., Ltd. and its subsidiary Yanmar Power Technology Co., Ltd. have conducted a field demonstration test for the maritime fuel cell system on March 24, in Oita, Japan.
A new £200,000 study – led by the University of Stirling – is seeking to understand the fuel choices of those living in East and Central African communities in a bid to improve health.
Researchers from Coventry University are collaborating with Severn Trent and the Organics Group to turn sewage waste into a clean fuel for tankers and other vehicles.
Toyota has successfully packaged a hydrogen fuel cell system into a compact module that can be easily used in many different applications, including mobility (buses, trucks, trains and ships) and stationary generators.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car has taken delivery of 17 Toyota hydrogen fuel cell electric cars as part of a number of initiatives to explore alternative fuels to deliver low and zero-emission transport.
Britain has burned more coal in the last seven days than at any time in nearly a year, suggesting that progress toward one of the UK’s key climate goals is stalling. Figures from National Grid ESO show how fossil fuel use spiked in the last week with high demand in cold weather conditions. Gas and coal regularly hit 60% of electricity generation. Day-ahead prices reached £1,000/MWh last week, as National Grid issued repeated notices about power supplies.
Interest in ammonia-powered fuel cells for the maritime sector is growing, but stakeholders have been hesitant to commit to investments in large-scale systems. Now the ShipFC project, granted funding from EU’s Research and Innovation program Horizon 2020 under its Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), is aiming to secure a place for ammonia in the future of deep-sea shipping.
Scientists from Washington State University (WSU) have designed a sustainable wastewater treatment system that depends on electron-producing bacterial communities to purify the water.
The upcoming conference “Fuels of the Future”, which takes place in January 2021, is the global key event to get updated on both the current discussion and future agenda on energy and mobility transition. Like in the previous years, the conference provides important insights into topics regarding renewable mobility and biofuels.
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) has unveiled an end-to-end hydrogen refuelling solution supporting ZeroAvia’s hydrogen-powered test flight programme in Cranfield.
