Honda, Toyota, Nissan want to change how you fill up the tank

The lack of fueling stations is one of the bigger—and more expensive—challenges that stand in the way of the widespread adoption of hydrogen-powered cars. In geographically massive places like the United States, it seems like an impossible task. 374 more words


Toyota's hydrogen car tops Tesla driving range

Owners of Toyota’s fuel cell-powered car of the future, which hits dealerships in California this fall, will be able to drive 312 miles on a single fill of hydrogen. 377 more words


How fuel cells are transforming energy markets

America’s clean energy future is now. Fuel cells are no longer an “if” technology, but a “when”, and that “when” is today.

The technology began to gain traction over a decade ago when fuel cells showed that they fit well in a range of early applications, competing head to head with incumbent technologies. 275 more words
