H2USA and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced two new tools and the release of two reports developed through H2USA to support hydrogen fueling

To follow recent article. Hence, the USA are studying ways of setting up the Hydrogen fuel cell car filling station network. This is well worth a look at ?.Because as far as i know.As expected the Americans are well ahead of anything .

“H2USA and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced two new tools and the release of two reports developed through H2USA to support hydrogen fueling infrastructure deployment.  H2USA is a public private partnership co-launched in 2013 by DOE and industry to develop hydrogen infrastructure and deploy fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) across the United States”

In the USA the Department of Energy. They have launched a private/public joint venture. That therefore, will be looking at ways of setting up a network of filling stations. Thus,  to accommodate the growing possibility of Hydrogen cars.
Her in the UK. For this reason, are also looking at the problem through the eyes of the UK.  Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association.

As a result, the association have been spurred on by the plan to provide £11 million to support. So for a network of hydrogen filling stations to be rolled out across the UK. This follows a recent successful campaign. As expected, from a group known as UKH2 Mobility, who supports the network of hydrogen fuel facilities.
As you can see from my image. Naturally, there is already hydrogen fuel filling stations. All dotted around Europe. Therefore it will only be a matter of time. Before we see these as common place on the existing forecourts across the world.Thus, similar to the addition of LPG gas pumps.

To bring this post more upto date.  Countries are expecting to roll out the pumps. Henvce,  to be able to sell Hydrogen fuel to motorists.

Toyota Mira—on the hydrogen highway – A race between hydrogen and batteries- ConsumerReports.org

Toyota Mira

Consumer Reports drives the 2016 Toyota Mira

—on the hydrogen highway. The promise of free fuel for three years makes this fuel-cell car an intriguing option.

This is one of my best bets for the car of the future.Hence, along with the battery driven car. Toyota have indeed spent millions of dollars. Thus , developing the Mira. Which are expected to travel 300 miles. So using the fuel that consists of a high pressure hydrogen gas. As expected, the gas will be stored in two fiberglass  fuel tanks.

This will give the Toyota Mira a big advantage over the battery driven Lithium-Ion cars, that are at present being developed by a number of car makers.

The hydrogen fuel. Therefore, is expected to be eventually rolled out. Therefore, onto conventional filling stations. Thus, across Europe and the USA, including Japan. The car will fill up in a similar manner to LPG cars are now, and only take a few minutes to fill.

Department of Energy (DOE) are looking at setting up a network of Hydrogen fuel stations across America. H2USA are looking at the financial implications and costs of setting up a network.

My own opinion is that all the new technologies will be battling it out for the most cost effective solution to fuels for cars of the future. Crude oil prices,will still have a say in the matter. As new oil fields are still being found. Even in the UK. We have found new oil reserves in the county of Kent. I do believe that the fuels such as hydrogen that could run along the same infrastructure as petrol (gasoline), will be the more successful fuel. The sales of battery driven cars are already falling because of the massive drop in petrol prices so the regular driver is only concerned about his pocket and not the environment.
