Hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles emit none of the greenhouse gas emissions that are detrimental to the environment or human health. If the hydrogen is made from a renewable energy production source such as solar energy, hydrogen production is also clean.
One original equipment manufacturer (OEM) predicts that mass-produced fuel cell electric vehicles could be similar to the cost of their hybrid counterparts by 2025.
Hydrogen faces pricing and storage challenges, but advancements are being made.
In Ohio, the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) has been a hydrogen leader, deploying several buses with the help of funding from the Federal Transit Association.
