Fuel Cells 2000’s Fuel Cell Technology Update – June 2010

The Fuel Cell Insider (http://www.fuelcellinsider.org) has some great posts up, including a couple from our new guest blogger, Mike Hugh from Asia Fuel Cell Gateway. He will be providing an inside look into Japan’s fuel cell programs and progress. Please visit our blog and post a few comments!

TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS

Toyota Predicts $50,000 Retail FCV.
Toyota Motor Corporation said it has cut the cost of making fuel-cell vehicles by about 90 percent since the mid-2000s and may be able to price its first retail hydrogen model at about $50,000.

CTE Awarded Forklift and Infrastructure Contract.
The Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE) has been awarded a $6 million contract for the development of a Department of Defense hydrogen fuel cell pilot program at the Defense Depot San Joaquin (DDJC), in Tracy, California. The project scope includes development of a hydrogen pilot at DDJC utilizing 20 hydrogen-powered forklifts for warehousing activities, and an electrolysis-based hydrogen generation system using renewable energy. The project consists of approximately 12 months of infrastructure and vehicle development and deployment followed by two years of pilot program operations and data collection. The project team, led by CTE, consists of industry-leading organizations, including Plug Power Inc., Air Products and Chemicals, and Proton Energy Systems.

Cummins and Protonex Successfully Demonstrate SOFC Truck APU.
Cummins successfully demonstrated a tubular solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) in a hybrid-configured auxiliary power unit (APU) configured to power a Class 7/8 truck’s “hotel loads” while running on commercial ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel. The Cummins APU incorporated hybrid power electronics, system controls, and balance-of-plant components combined with SOFC modules supplied by Protonex Technology Corporation. The SOFC power unit was integrated with a modified power electronics section derived from Cummins Power Generation’s Hybrid Quiet Diesel™ (HQD) recreational vehicle power system. The hybrid power electronics provide dynamic load sharing between the SOFC and a battery pack. The testing replicated the ten-hour rest period that is part of the daily routine of a typical over-the-road truck. http://www.cumminspower.com/en/about/news/2010/news-2010-02/index.jsp

CHINA SHOULD SEEK LOW CARBON FUTURE TO

CHINA SHOULD SEEK LOW CARBON FUTURE TO PRESERVE ECONOMIC GAINS, SAYS UN REPORT

Thu 15 Apr 2010

China needs to tackle climate change and environmental degradation or risks reversing the social and economic progress that has made it the second largest economy in the world, according to a United Nations Development Programme (http://content.undp.org/go/newsroom/2010/april/chinas-low-carbon-future-at-critical-crossroads-says-new-report.en UNDP) report released today.

China is at a critical juncture when the business as usual growth model is not sufficient to the countrys emerging challenges and pressures, said Khalid Malik, UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in China.

The shift to a low carbon development pathway is imperative as China balances further economic development with environmental sustainability and the need to respond to the threat of climate change, he added.

The report, China and a Sustainable Future, towards a Low carbon Economy and Society, written in partnership with Renmin University of China, argues that the country has no other choice but to shift to a low carbon development path as it continues to urbanize.

China is now home to one-quarter of the world’s largest cities and is predicted to see 350 million of its rural population migrate to urban areas over the next two decades.

The authors acknowledged that the low carbon model might bring temporary risks such as job losses, higher prices and fiscal revenue shortfalls.

However, advantages could include long-lasting green job opportunities, greater competitiveness in new technology, technological innovation, improved standing in the world, and reduced harm to human health and the protection of vital ecosystems.

Chinas low carbon policies should be used to foster the transformation of economic growth and industrial upgrading, and prioritize low carbon energy such as wind, biomass and solar energy.

Most of the energy-consuming assets needed between now and 2020 have yet to be built. Chinas success in moving towards low carbon development will be shaped by the types of investments, choices of technologies and organizational decisions that are made in the near future, the report concluded.

The launch comes ahead of next week’s Major Economic Forum on Energy and Climate in Washington, which China is scheduled to attend.

China is taking part in the UN-led climate change talks and has committed to voluntarily reducing its emissions of carbon dioxide per unit of economic growth by 40 to 45 per cent by 2020, compared with 2005 levels.
