    NEST Lines up Grid-Parity Solar - The first success story of the New Energy Systems Trust (NEST) seems to have already commenced with us lining up a breakthrough grid-parity solar company with an order for 4500 one-megawatt systems in India. SHEC Labs is a likely vendor of the biomass-to-H technology, if not using their solar thermal storage breakthrough. (PESN; May 9, 2012)

Research & Development

  • Hydrogen > Storage >
    Hydrogen still in the eco-car race - Israeli scientists and entrepreneurs claim to have brought hydrogen energy a step closer by putting it in much smaller, lighter containers, packing hydrogen into glass filaments which will be only slightly thicker than a human hair. 11,000 such arrays will fuel a car for 400 kilometers (240 miles), take less than half the space and weight of tanks currently available (Associated Press; Apr. 18, 2010)
  • Solar Hydrogen / Hydrogen > Production / Storage >
    A Virus That Might Make Hydrogen - A team of scientists lead by material science professor Angela Belcher has genetically modified a virus that can exploit sunlight to split water into oxygen and hydrogen.

  • Asemblon - Hydrnol acts as a liquid storage battery, storing low-cost hydrogen produced from excess power at standard temperatures and pressures, converting it back to hydrogen to meet peak power demands. It can can fuel transportation needs for diesel and propane boosting, hydrogen fuel cells and modified internal combustion engines.
  • Nanotech > Buckyballs Can Store Concentrated Hydrogen - Researchers from Rice University have discovered that it's possible to store hydrogen inside buckyballs.
