New ‘fuel pump’ aims for holy trinity of clean transport

A new project in Germany aims to help develop a fuel filling station able to supply electric, methane and hydrogen-powered vehicles. Researchers at the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) aim to develop a ‘fuel pump’ that can cater to a variety of alternatively-fuelled, low carbon transport technologies in the most efficient and […]

Eight energy firms pledge methane reductions from natural gas

BP, ExxonMobil, Shell, Statoil and Total are among eight energy companies that have committed to further reduce methane emissions from their natural gas assets.

Google makes Street View air pollution data available

Google is now sharing air pollution information gathered by sensors on its Street View cars. The project originally aimed to detect methane leaks from old gas pipes and other sources so they could be closed off – the greenhouse gas is around 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Other sensors now also measure levels […]
