gfoat writes "As the world’s motor industries introduce measures to reduce transport’s dependence on oil and to meet the legislation to cut CO2 emissions, a timely meeting in Birmingham, UK, considered the role of hydrogen fuel cells in a low carbon transport system. At the conference entitled ‘Smart Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Power’ different options were proposed to commercialise hydrogen fuel cells for transport. See the full new report at FuelCellPower."

Fuel cells UK: Fuel Cell Power Autumn 2011
posted by on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 - 08:29 AM

gfoat writes "The Government is focusing upon eight ‘key’ renewable energy technologies, for onshore wind, offshore wind, marine energy, biomass electricity, biomass heat, ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps and renewable transport. Onshore and offshore wind and marine energy could be utilized more effectively if hydrogen fuel cell systems were employed to store surplus energy and make it available when required as electricity and heat. Biomass electricity and heat may also be utilised more efficiently in CHP mode with fuel cells. Heat pumps are efficient means of generating heat, but they still require electricity and this will add to the peak winter demand. Fuel cells will complement heat pumps, providing both electricity and additional heat when required. The Government does include fuel cells powered by green hydrogen as one of the key power sources for transport, alongside biofuels. The electric vehicles, whether powered by batteries or hydrogen fuel cells, will be an important means of levelling the load from intermittent renewable energy sources. For those wanting to use solar panels, which are not listed as a key technology, hydrogen fuel cell systems will enable them to utilise energy from the sun when required during the evenings.

gfoat writes "Cllr Paul Tilsey, Deputy Leader of Birmingham City Council, welcomed delegates to the 7th International Conference entitled Generating the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Society. He said that the price of oil keeps rising and that supplies will peak within the next fifteen to twenty years. In that timescale, by 2026, Birmingham City Council is aiming to reduce their C02 emissions by 60%. Birmingham is aware of its responsibilities as the second UK city. They have introduced three new local distributed energy systems and are demonstrating electric vehicles, including fuel cell cars. Birmingham is accelerating manufacturing processes in order to bring forward fuel cell demonstrations and they look forward to leading the world into a new energy future with hydrogen and fuel cells.

Fuel cells Fuel Cell Power No 43
posted by on Tuesday, March 29, 2011 - 07:03 AM

gfoat writes "The future of energy is here as UTC Power delivers one of their next generation fuel cells to a residential building in New York! Fuel cells also provide clean, efficient electricity, heat and cooling for educational institutions, hospitals, manufacturing and wastewater treatment facilities, office buildings and supermarkets. Fuel cells fit in with the new low carbon energy infrastructure which is being built. They are becoming increasingly competitive as fossil fuels cover their real costs and economies of scale are achieved with larger volume manufacturing. Read the full article."

Fuel cells Fuel Cell Power No. 41 (Summer 2010)
posted by on Sunday, October 03, 2010 - 06:44 AM

gfoat writes "There are already markets for fuel cells as generators of low power for computers, CCTV, remote monitoring systems, LED lighting and reliable back up. This summer fuel cells are contributing to a variety of leisure activities, providing portable power for boats or bikes. They can either be refuelled with methanol, or hydrogen fuel cells can be recharged from micro wind and solar energy. Procurement of fuel cells by regional and local governments is helping to expedite the volume production of fuel cells. In Australia, the Victorian Government is installing fuel cells in homes and in the UK the City of Leicester is hosting the first fuel cell car project. Fuel cells also provide an efficient, quiet, space-saving power source for hospitals, schools, universities and data centres. See the full article at Fuel Cell Power."

Fuel cells UK: ITM Power wins top international award
posted by on Thursday, February 28, 2008 - 06:23 PM

gfoat writes "A British company leading the alternative fuel revolution has won a major international award. ITM Power, which is developing ways of using hydrogen to fuel vehicles and provide power for homes and offices, has won The CleanEquity Monaco 2008 Award for Excellence in the Field of Environmental Technology Research. The award was presented to ITM’s Chief Executive Officer, Jim Heathcote, by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco at a ceremony in Monaco at the end of the two-day international conference on emerging environmental technologies."

Fuel cells No 29 SUMMER 2007 : FUEL CELL POWER
posted by on Friday, September 07, 2007 - 12:41 PM

gfoat writes "This is critical time for the future of the UK’s energy supply. Several environmental groups have withdrawn support from the Government’s public consultation on nuclear energy because they feel it is not properly balanced. The Energy White Paper in 2003 stipulated that there should be more backing for renewable energy rather than nuclear power, but this has not materialised! Earlier this year a High Court Judge agreed with Greenpeace that the Government’s procedure had been unfair and that a full public consultation was needed before any new nuclear power stations could be commissioned. Future Energies asks why the UK has not carried out a proper programme to develop energy saving and small scale renewable energy technologies, which could contribute to the UK’s energy security and help us to meet C02 reduction targets. Why is there so little progress in improving building insulation? Why have we not, like several European countries, introduced renewable energy feed-in tariffs (REFIT), which would make it economic to invest in micro energy technologies? Why doesn’t the UK have an integrated public passenger transport system? "

Fuel cells No 26 Autumn 2006 : FUEL CELL POWER
posted by on Thursday, November 30, 2006 - 12:16 PM

gfoat writes "FuelCell Energy has upgraded its one megawatt Direct FuelCell power plant at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. to use fuel created from a waste by-product of the brewing process. This reduces energy costs by 25 to 40 percent and cuts the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere."
