Li-ion battery maker EnerDel, Inc. has introduced the new PPA 300-689 Vigor+ Energy Storage System (ESS) as part of its aftermarket and service business strategy.

ITM Power to deploy solar-powered hydrogen refueling station at CEME; wind-powered public H2 station opens in South Yorkshire

Green Car Congress

The station will be upgraded early 2016 to provide hydrogen at 700 bar as a result of funding from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). This will provide the fuel cell vehicles with a longer range of between 350 – 400 miles and extend the reach of clean emission transportation in South Yorkshire to hydrogen refueling stations elsewhere in the UK, including London.
