The Hydrogen Economy: Building the Infrastructure
With all the major auto manufacturers intensely pouring resources into the fuel cell vehicle race the prototype vehicles will no doubt be competitors to the standard internal combustion engine cars. Distributed generation of energy in the form of stationary fuel cells has already hit the markets worldwide and test results are positive. BC Hydro has taken the initiative to construct the world's first 10,000 psi fuelling station for fuel cell cars in Vancouver. General Hydrogen and General Motors have a 25 year deal to create an infrastructure that will compliment the fossil fuel network. BP's clean fuel division will be a major supplier of hydrogen for DaimlerChrysler's 30 fuel cell buses in a pan-European project set to start in 2002. Listen to these and other experts outline how they are addressing the hydrogen infrastructure issue.
