Energy Transition

How hydrogen can offer a clean energy future  

A Hyundai Tucson hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) is filled at the pump by Derek Joyce in a photo op in Newport Beach, California June 9, 2014. The Tucson FCEV will be released this week and represents the next generation of electric vehicles that creates its own electricity, on-board, from hydrogen with zero greenhouse-gas emissions, emitting only water vapor. The car will offer a driving range over 250 miles and is capable of refueling in less than 10 minutes with a hose and nozzle similar to gasoline fueling.  REUTERS/Alex Gallardo
