Latest links from the roads

In the travel mobilities region there are a couple of interesting posts.

This one - Hydrogen storage for green cars discusses how researchers in the U.K. and Canada say they've discovered a new material which could be used to safely store hydrogen at room temperature. The material, known as a rhodium-hydrogen compound, can store and release hydrogen with a simple switch. Good news for green motorists is that the researchers hope to have an hydrogen tank prototype ready within two to three years. (Via Primidi)

Another is - GM's Plug-In Hybrid: 'Last week General Motors (GM) gave a boost to plug-in hybrid vehicles. It announced a new gas-saving technology that could transform transportation and make renewable sources of electricity, such as wind and sun, more feasible.' (Via TechReview)
