New England Leads Another Industrial Revolution

Nearly 70% of the companies participating at this year’s Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries Group Exhibit (Europe’s largest hydrogen, fuel cells and battery exhibition) at the Hannover Fair, are from New England states. As reported in PRWeb, Connecticut Department of Economic & Community Development Commissioner, Catherine Smith, commented on the impressive hydrogen and fuel cell leadership of Northeast region: “The renewable energy sector in particular is an emerging area of strength…cutting-edge companies [positioned as] leaders in this growing industry.”

Ace Hardware Adds Nuvera Hydrogen Generation Solution for a Second Facility Greenfield Site

PRESS RELEASE: Billerica, Mass., May 16, 2014 — A PowerTap® hydrogen generator went live at Ace Hardware's new state-of-the-art Retail Support Center in West Jefferson, Ohio. This is the second facility for Ace that is equipped with a Nuvera® PowerTap PT-50 on-site hydrogen generator and fueling solution. The system produces and dispenses up to 50 kg/day of high-purity hydrogen to service a fleet of 35 fuel cell-powered reach trucks and 36 fuel cell pallet jacks running a single 10-hour shift, five days a week, plus a floor scrubber. The investment is expected to result in electrical consumption savings for Ace of 330,115 kWh annually by avoiding the need to charge a battery-powered fleet.

Toyota Unplugs Tesla Batteries

Toyota is allowing a battery-supply deal with Tesla Motors to expire in 2014 in order to focus on developing next-generation technology that rivals Tesla’s battery-powered electric vehicle. The decision to end its Tesla deal shows a shift away from batteries towards fuel cells. Even before ending the 4-year deal with Tesla, the Japanese auto manufacturer has been sending increasingly obvious signals that it sees the future of zero-emission technology in fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). The reason: Fuel cell electric vehicles, also known as hydrogen vehicles, offer a significantly greater range and are ready to drive without charging. Like conventional gasoline-powered vehicles, FCEVs simply fuel up at a filling station. But there’s an important difference. The fuel is hydrogen and the fuel cell (which creates electricity from a reaction between hydrogen and the oxygen in air) powers the vehicle without creating any emissions, except a little water.
