It's unclear exactly what mix of technologies will drive the zero-emission vehicles of the future. But in terms of 'well-to-wheel' efficiency, electric batteries outperform hydrogen.
Hydrogen fuel is just one opportunity for Australia in a clean-energy future.
The latest UN climate report makes it clear that the task of limiting climate change is urgent and huge. We must start to transform our economy today, but it will bring rewards as well as challenges.
Could this be the way to fill up in future?
The hydrogen economy has been touted for decades as a way to navigate the clean energy transition. Now a new CSIRO roadmap sets out how hydrogen power can become a major energy player.
Even a small cloud can weigh as much as four tonnes – but gravity, chemistry and temperature keep them floating in the sky.

AGL has announced plans to use coal to make hydrogen fuel at its Loy Yang A station in Victoria's Latrobe Valley. Wait, isn't coal made of carbon, not hydrogen? Yes, but here's how the process works.
The Nazi atomic effort relied on work done in this remote lab.
Feb. 28 marks the 75th anniversary of Operation Gunnerside. A stealthy group of skiing commandos took out a crucial Nazi facility and stopped Hitler from getting the atomic bomb.
Mine’s a Star-opramen.
It's like one great big distillery up there.
The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder uses several telescopes to survey the sky.
After months of running in test-mode, the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder telescope is now gathering data at an incredible rate to give us a new look at how our universe works.

Fusion development takes time. It cannot be developed in miniature and then be simply scaled up. But we must work now, to make it possible to meet humanity's need for abundant, clean energy.
Light from the universe’s first galaxies destroyed the hydrogen atoms that formed during the Big Bang.

A new telescope aims to figure out what became of the universe's original atoms once the first stars began to shine.
Water good idea.
Air pollution from burning firewood and charcoal is the fourth-biggest killer in many countries.

Modifying chemicals' molecular properties can make 'splitting' hydrogen from water more efficient.
Back to basics in the home of the fuel cell.
Will the Rasa be a clean slate for the advancement of fuel cell cars?
If this detonation was a hydrogen bomb test, then it was likely less successful than the North Korean leadership may have hoped.
North Korea remains committed to perfecting a deployable nuclear weapon capability. It is confident in the understanding that there appears little the international community can do to prevent it.
Galaxies located in groups may be running out of gas, according to a new international study led by Swinburne University…
Scientists at Stanford University in California have found a more efficient way to produce hydrogen by splitting water molecules…
A technique using the power of sunlight to split water into hydrogen and oxygen has been developed by researchers. The development…
BBC presenter Quentin Willson fills up at Nottingham’s hydrogen station.
The promise that hydrogen cars would help reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the transport sector has been with us for a couple of decades. Readers may well have wondered what, like hoverboards, has…
Without energy storage technology we’re leaving good energy blowing in the wind.
The handling of Britain’s energy strategy leaves much to be desired, subject as it is to short term politics over long term planning. We face a trilemma that stems from the opposing tension of climate…
