Toyota bets the future car will be fuelled by hydrogen

This new drone can stay in air for up to two hours, which, is six times longer than the average drone running on a normal battery.
A hydrogen fuel cell like the one attached to Intelligent Energy’s drone uses compressed hydrogen and oxygen from the air to generate electricity.
This could have a transformative, green impact on India’s energy market
We have had huge levels of interest from manufacturers
Under the agreement, the companies will work together to develop technological solutions to increase drone flight time
The goal is for the deal to lead to a formal commercial arrangement for the solutions’ roll-out
Drones are an exciting new technology. Even with advanced batteries their value is limited, they need to offer better flight times and range
Intelligent Energy's system could see more drones staying in the air longer and taking less time to refuel.
Intelligent Energy has unveiled a fuel cell/battery range extender that could become standard equipment on third-party drones.
This type of setup also extends the length of charge time. Instead of 20 minutes, users can expect hours of battery life
Intelligent Energy has introduced a new hydrogen fuel cell prototype for drones that tackles one of UAV's biggest problems: flight time
Intelligent Energy has recently announced that come CES 2016, they plan on showing off their hydrogen fuel cell powered range extender for drones
Because the unit can be recharged with compressed hydrogen, refueling a depleted cell can be accomplished in a few minutes
The hydrogen fuel cell can keep a drone in the air for up to two hours, offering users the opportunity to undertake more time-consuming work
The technology addresses two of the biggest problems for drone manufacturers, flight time and refuel time
With that in mind, a hydrogen fuel cell has been developed that can extend flight time to several hours
Drones are an exciting new technology. Even with advanced batteries their value is limited. For commercial use, they need better flight range
Intelligent Energy hopes that manufacturers will employ its tech to extend the fly time of their drones and cut down refuel times to two minutes
Its hydrogen fuel cell-powered range extender can make that happen and give unmanned aerial vehicles the power to fly for several hours
There’s an obvious barrier in battery life, and we saw an obvious need to increase that

By 2020, the project will seek to have this fuel cell stack solution ready to be installed in clean vehicles
We need to ensure our fuel cell stacks are robustly industrialised, which is the aim of this programme
