Hydrogen and electric-powered lorries will be mass produced in the UK by an Essex-based firm. Tevva, based in Thurrock, has added a hydrogen fuel cell system to its battery-electric HGV […] The post ShinyShiny snippets: Hydrogen powered lorry to be mass-produced in UK appeared first on ShinyShiny.
H2 Clipper presents a very compelling case to bring back an extremely controversial technology, saying that large electric airships lifted and powered by green hydrogen stand ready to transport massive cargo loads over enormous distances much faster than cargo ships, opening up inland logistics facilities with minimal ground infrastructure, and doing it all with zero emissions.Continue ReadingCat
UK startup Viritech has launched its gorgeous Pininfarina-penned Apricale hypercar at Goodwood, and dropped some impressive specifications to go with it. This hydrogen-powered monster will break both the 1,000-horsepower and 1-hp-per-kg barriers.Continue ReadingCategory: Automotive, TransportTags: Hypercar, Viritech, Hydrogen-powered, Hydrogen
Having introduced a series of battery-electric trucks over the past few years, Volvo Trucks is now expanding on its vision of a cleaner trucking future with a foray into hydrogen fuel cell powertrains. The company announced this week that it has begun putting these next-generation big rigs through their paces, with a view to introducing them to the market later this decade.Continue ReadingCategor
The Celera 500L is a truly remarkable design. Otto Aviation says its odd shape delivers an astonishing 59 percent reduction in drag, and a massive leap in efficiency and range compared to traditional plane geometries. Arguably, this thing should've been electric from the get-go, so it's a no-brainer that Otto has teamed up with ZeroAvia to build a version with a hydrogen fuel cell powertrain.Cont
Gas turbines are found in aircraft, trains, ships, generators, pumps, compressors and all sorts of other places. They can run on a variety of fuels, but some 90 percent of them currently run on natural gas, a fossil fuel that produces carbon dioxide when you burn it, while also escaping into the atmosphere everywhere you pull it out of the ground, to create greenhouse conditions some 80 times wor
Toyota wants hydrogen to power entire cities in Japan. Its subsidiary Woven Planet broke ground last February on a "Woven City" near Susono, which will act as a futuristic testbed for all sorts of urban planning ideas and technologies, including an expanded use of hydrogen fuel throughout the area.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Toyota, Hydrogen-powered, Fuel Cell
A revolutionary cryogenic tank design promises to radically boost the range of hydrogen-powered aircraft – to the point where clean, fuel-cell airliners could fly up to four times farther than comparable planes running on today's dirty jet fuel.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: Hydrogen Aviation, HyPoint, Climate Solutions: Aviation, Hydrogen-powered, Electric Aircraft
Mindful of the significant carbon emissions generated by the marine industry, America's Cup reigning champion Emirates Team New Zealand has been developing a hydrogen-powered chase boat, and has now taken it out for its first spin. The Chase Zero foiling catamaran made its first splash in Auckland last week, tearing around Waitematā harbor while leaving no carbon emissions in its wake.Continue Re
Hydrogen will be one of humanity's key weapons in the war against carbon dioxide emissions, but it must be treated with care. New reports show how fugitive hydrogen emissions can indirectly produce warming effects 11 times worse than those of CO2.Continue ReadingCategory: Environment, ScienceTags: Hydrogen, Hydrogen Economy, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Climate Crisis is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
