Microsoft Is Getting Hungry for Fuel Cells
Oct 31, 2017 | Bloomberg.com


Microsoft Corp. is moving to use fuel cells at its power-hungry server farms, saying the technology may double the efficiency of energy used. The software company is testing how it can use the devices to generate electricity and plans to install a 10-megawatt fuel cell within a few years at a cost of about $45 million. "This technology is very, very disruptive, and we're investing a lot of time and money into it," said Sean James, principal research program manager at Microsoft's R&D program on energy strategy. "We could almost double the energy efficiency. We've been able to model and measure in the lab that with fuel cells." Once so expensive that they were only used in laboratories and space projects, fuel cells have spread to more commercial applications seeking lower-pollution forms of energy.

 2017 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell

TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 8, Honda is joining the nation in celebrating National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day (www.hydrogenfuelcellday.org) to raise awareness of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies that can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while increasing the nation's energy security. The date is a reference to hydrogen's atomic weight of 1.008. Honda is a leader in the development and deployment of advanced fuel cell vehicle technologies and today has more than 450 Clarity Fuel Cell vehicles – with an industry-leading 366-mile zero-emissions driving range rating1 – in the hands of customers. 

"Honda envisions a day when fuel cell cars are the norm, and personal mobility is no longer incompatible with a clean and sustainable environment. That's our dream, and that's what powers our ongoing efforts to knock down the barriers to its mass market appeal," said Steven Center, vice president of Connected and Environmental Business Development at American Honda.
