Is the United States trying to develop hydrogen fuel?



  1. 0 Votes

    Currently the U.S. has 370 plants that produce hydrogen as a biproduct. Additionally, car companies have been producing prototypes of hydrogen powered cars for more than half a decade. However, few hydrogen fueling stations exist, certainly not enough to facilitate long distance travel, also hydrogen cars have not been made available to the general public.

    In 2002, George Bush passed Hydrogen Fuel Initiative in hopes of creating a hydrogen infrastructure for the United States transportation energy sector. Plans outlined a network of 284 fueling stations which would facilitate travel ” …along 65% of the U.S. interstate highway system.”

    Will these plans come to fruition? High fuel costs and infrastructure costs will pose challenges for future development of the U.S. hydrogen infrastructure.
