Coming Down the Pike: Long-Haul Trucks Powered by Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Hydrogen fuel cells are on the rise: Germany has rolled out hydrogen-powered trains, the San Francisco Bay Area will soon see the nation’s first hydrogen fuel cell ferry, and sales of fuel-cell vehicles are up globally. It’s a technology with the potential to provide a variety of clean energy options, especially in transportation. Now the Department of Energy has announced several major investments to take hydrogen fuel cells to the next level, and Berkeley Lab is set to play a leading role in providing the scientific expertise to help realize DOE’s ambitious goals.
