Hydrogen- Fuel Cell Technologies Hydrogen is the most abundant gas element on earth. When hydrogen gas burns in air, it forms water. Fuel cells silent reactions produce an electric current. Fuel cells are almost endlessly rechargeable. The cells run on hydrogen, which reacts with oxygen from the air in such a way that a voltage is generated between two electrodes; the reactions occur in a chemical mediator known as an electrolyte. Compared with conventional fossil-fuel power sources, fuel cells are exceptionally clean and efficient.

Default DOE Launches $1 Million Hydrogen Prize

DOE Launches $1 Million Hydrogen Prize

WASHINGTON, DC - August 28, 2009: The AIADA newsletter reported that according to Autoblog.com, the Department of Energy has just announced a new program with a $1 million prize to anyone that can devise a breakthrough hydrogen storage system by 2011.

The move comes in spite of the agency's move to slash funding for federal hydrogen and research development programs. Though hydrogen proponents may argue that the costly high-pressure storage tanks aren't a major stumbling block (or at least won't be within the next few years), the reality is that a more cost effective solution would be a boon for hydrogen vehicles.

Though a million bucks isn't exactly chump change for the vast majority of us, it pales in comparison to the tens of billions of dollars regularly pumped into the research and development of alternative fuels and technologies.

Details of the program are slated to be released any time now at www.hydrogenprize.org.
