Hydrogen Infrastructure

By Christopher Wilde

There are only twenty hydrogen stations in California to refuel Honda's new hydrogen car (the FCX Clarity).  There is a catch-22 in which providers don't want to invest in refueling stations until they see more cars capable of using the fuel. 

A possible solution to this problem would be to give special permits and tax incentives to auto dealers to enter the refueling business.  This would drive more auto manufactures to produce a greater number of hydrogen vehicles and apply greater pressure on oil and gas companies to make a switch.

An even better solution may be Honda's home energy solution, a plan under development at Honda to create a hydrogen generating plant in your home (just add water).
