Hydrogen Fuel Gains in Use

Posted June 6, 2014 at 5:10am

Bloomberg reports that “once relegated to the realm of science projects, hydrogen fuel cells are starting to displace fossil fuels as a means of powering cars, homes and businesses.”  

“On June 10, in the latest addition to mainstream fuel-cell use, Hyundai Motor Co. will begin deliveries of a consumer SUV in Southern California. The technology is already producing electricity for the grid in Connecticut. AT&T Inc. is using fuel cells to power server farms, and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. uses hydrogen-powered fork lifts. Later this, summer FedEx Corp. will begin using hydrogen cargo tractors at its Memphis air hub.”
