Will More Public Hydrogen Fueling Stations Fuel Demand For More Hydrogen Cars?

People have been talking about hydrogen fueled cars for decades. The hydrogen car has transformed from a futuristic impossibility akin to George Jetson’s space mobile, to the punch line of a joke told around the water cooler, to where it is now–a reality for an exclusive few, but impractical and unaffordable for most. Will the hydrogen car ever become a common sight in driveways across North America? A group of California politicians and some major automotive companies believe it can. And should. What is a hydrogen car? A hydrogen fuel…
