"Zero Emissions. Zero Compromise." - New Campaign Highlights Excitement and Benefits of Fuel Cell Vehicles

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles (FCVs), the next generation of electric cars, are already making their mark with California drivers, and the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) wants to expand the experience to the northeastern states.  FCHEA is launching "Zero Emissions. Zero Compromise." to emphasize the driving excitement of emissions-free FCVs and the important roles they play by fostering technological innovation, curbing transportation-related emissions, and increasing U.S. energy independence.  

FCHEA launched the new campaign and dedicated website, www.zeroemissions.org, to capstone National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day, officially recognized on October 8.

Fuel cells generate electricity using hydrogen electrochemically, not by combustion, so the only byproducts are water vapor and heat.  Today, hydrogen is produced from renewable local sources such as wind, solar, and biogas, and from America's abundant natural gas supply.

Two FCVs, the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell and Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell Vehicle, are now available to California customers.  Honda will introduce its Clarity FCV later this year, with Mercedes-Benz to follow in 2017 with its GLC F-CELL.  Other premier global automotive companies also plan to sell FCVs in the next few years.  To date, automakers have logged over fifteen million miles of safe and efficient FCV driving.   

"These innovative fuel cell vehicles are appealing because they provide a clean choice without compromise," notes FCHEA President Morry Markowitz.  "FCVs are zero-emission vehicles that work like the ordinary car you drive today with a range of 300-400 miles and refueling times of just three to five minutes, with only water emitted from the tailpipe."

"Leading automakers, industry, and the state of California have made critical investments in infrastructure to ensure that drivers in the state have both the vehicles and the hydrogen filling stations they need," Mr. Markowitz added. "Other incentives play an important role in encouraging consumer adoption of fuel cell vehicles and station owners to develop hydrogen stations."

The "Zero Emissions. Zero Compromise." campaign will continue and build upon California's success, as well as help introduce FCVs to the northeastern states.  The campaign will host meetings and events for stakeholders to experience FCVs first hand, showcasing the transformational vehicle technology and demonstrating how they will help meet state and regional clean air goals.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
