Transitional Solutions for Hydrogen Refueling Infrastructure to Support Fuel Cell Vehicles 2004-01-1016
For the major automakers to make the decision for a paradigm shift to hydrogen as a transportation fuel in the future, they need to be assured of the development of the infrastructure to accelerate their initiative. A hydrogen infrastructure must be in put in place to meet the demand for hydrogen fuel by fuel cell vehicles. In the absence of an adequate hydrogen-refueling infrastructure, Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. has developed modular, portable, and transportable hydrogen refueling systems to support early introduction fuel cell vehicles when and where needed. This paper describes selected hydrogen refueling systems and their application.
