The fuel cell vehicle segment has seen new life this year with the introduction of the Hyundai Tucson fuel cell vehicle and the launch of the Toyota Mirai . Now Honda is getting ready to enter the ring with its own hydrogen car – and it just unveiled the vehicle ahead of its official debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show . The Honda FCV has room for five passengers and according to Honda’s estimates, the fuel cell vehicle will have a driving range around 435 miles. That’s much longer than the Mirai’s 312-mile range , and it will only take around three minutes to refuel the hydrogen tank.

Comments Off on Korean researchers develop most efficient solar cell to date

A Korean research team has achieved record level efficiency in solar cells, using a new formula for mixing perovskite structures. Perovskite is an inexpensive, abundant mineral, and the researchers have found ways to make it even more efficient for solar power applications. The new solar cells are measured at 17.9 percent efficiency, which could mean very big things for this clean alternative energy source.

Comments Off on China Unveils Fuel Cell Light Rail Train

China has been making great strides in mass transit in the past year.  They’re building a huge Asia-Europe rail network , rapidly expanding their national high speed rail lines and have unveiled the world’s fastest high-speed train .  The country has now revealed a fuel cell light rail locomotive for local, city-wide and suburban transportation. The locomotive was developed by the China North Vehicle Yongji Electric Motor Corporation and the Southwest Jiaotong University.  The train is powered by a permanent-magnet motor and hydrogen fuel cells that run a synchronous motor and frequency converter.  This set up allows the train to produce and use power very efficiently while also cutting down on vibrations and noise. The magnet motor out-performs traditional motors while reducing energy use by 10 – 20 percent
