M4 in Wales to be 'hydrogen highway,' say ministers

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/8511319.stm

Quote:
The M4 in south Wales is to become a "hydrogen highway", with alternative energy refuelling points, Welsh Secretary, Peter Hain, has announced.
The scheme, to extend into south west England, is aimed at making hydrogen and electric-powered vehicles a viable alternative to petrol-driven machines.
Under the plan, Wales will lead in developing alternative fuels, including hydrogen from renewable sources.

Hydrogen highway begins in Whistler

http://www.vancouversun.com/technology/Hydrogen+highway+begins+Whistler/2554679/story.html

Quote:
Whistler Municipality already boasts an above-average bus ridership according Whistler Transit, and now visitors to the 2010 games will have the opportunity to join regular transit users on one of twenty zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell powered buses. These buses are an important step in eliminating the potential for smog and air pollutants in the Whistler valley. The $89.5-million project, a joint venture of the Canadian and B.C. governments, Whistler and the Canadian Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association, provides riders affordable, zero-emission transportation.

SunHydro Planning Solar Powered Hydrogen Highway for East Coast

http://inventorspot.com/articles/sunhydro_planning_solar_powered_hydrogen_highway_east_coast_37805

Quote:
The first phase of the plan calls for a group of stations placed along the east coast, stretching from Maine to Florida. The project will likely focus on the use of I-95, as that sees a majority of the North-South traffic in the area. While the official number of stations called for has not been released, one can assume it will take quite a few to cover such an expanse.

As their name implies, SunHydro will be using a solar powered system to produce the hydrogen, so the whole process is about as green as it gets. They are currently estimating that between 10 and 5 vehicles could be filled per day, depending on the amount required. The Connecticut based company would likely be pumping energy back into the grid when the storage tanks are full.

Hydrogen highways: the concept becoming reality

Quote:
The examples of such highways around the world are growing, with the latest addition being that from Wales and the south of England along the M4 corridor. Key developments include:

* In Norway, a highway from Oslo to Stavanger covering 600km (reportedly the longest in the world) as part of the broader HyNor project, with 7 fuelling stations.

* Sweden and Denmark are constructing their elements of the wider Scandinavian Hydrogen Highway Partnership, to link up with Norway. By 2015 the aim is to have some 20 main stations and 15 ‘satellite’ stations in operation supporting about 100 buses, 500 cars and 500 speciality vehicles.

* In British Columbia, from Victoria to Whistler covering 180km and in use by the fuel cell buses of BC Transit, with additional ‘mobile’ refuelling stations planned for the Winter Olympics.

* In Japan there are 12 stations sited within 11 cities, although they do not really comprise a highway system yet.

* California has the most substantially developed network with two major clusters around Los Angeles and San Francisco to Sacramento. There are over 25 refuelling stations.

* In South Korea 10 stations operational at the end of 2009 are to be augmented by a further 10 in 2010, mostly clustered in the north west of the country around Seoul and Incheon.

* In Germany there are over 30 stations. In late 2009 Daimler, EnBW, Linde, OMV, Shell, Total, Vattenfall and the NOW GmbH National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology announced ambitious plans for major expansion by 2015.

Ulster Expert Calls for All-Ireland Hydrogen Highway

http://news.ulster.ac.uk/releases/2010/4909.html

Quote:
Professor Molkov is urging government on both sides of the border to work together and act now to avoid being left behind. He says both governments must be prepared for the commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies planned in developed countries by 2015.

He said: “The HySAFER Centre, which is based at Ulster’s Jordanstown campus, is proposing a pilot project which would involve the creation of a network of hydrogen refuelling stations between Derry, Belfast and Dublin which would allow a hydrogen-fuelled public transport fleet to service this route and which could subsequently be extended to other vehicles.“
