WSU team's transportable hydrogen fueling station wins design contest

2014-09-02
The WSU team found an edge over the competing designs by employing liquid hydrogen (LH2) storage to maximize station capacity and reduce capital and operating costs. Delivering hydrogen in liquid form reduces the energy used for distribution, and 80-90% of small-merchant hydrogen is delivered via cryogenic liquid tanker truck.

Volvo, ABB partner on fast-charging electric buses

2014-08-18
Volvo Bus and Swiss technology group ABB are collaborating to develop and commercialize hybrid- and full-electric buses that employ “open standards-based” dc fast-charging systems. Buses will be charged quickly through an automatic roof-top connection system at bus stops, or through cabled charging systems overnight.
