UK pushing for hydrogen car future

The UK has just come out with a new joint government-industry report that calls for Britain to become a global leader in hydrogen car technology and projects a market share for hydrogen powered cars of 30-50 percent by 2050.

The report, published by the UKH2Mobility consortium, is designed to help build a road map towards introducing both hydrogen powered cars and a hydrogen refueling instrastructure in the UK beginning in 2015.    UKH2Mobility includes the car companies Daimler, Hyundai, Nissan, and Toyota, along with several energy companies, auto parts suppliers, and the British government.

The plan calls for a basic initial network of 65 hydrogen refueling stations, which would be placed into service on national truck routes and in high population areas.   Over time, the amount of refueling stations would increase, with 1,150 operating by 2030.
