DENVER (CBS4)– Some leaders in Colorado hope to show how feasible hydrogen fuel is for commuters in the state.
They believe Colorado will be ready for the construction of hydrogen fueling stations once retail hydrogen fueling regulations are put in place.
“Hydrogen is pretty cool. It’s a zero emission fuel. You take oxygen from the air, hydrogen from your tank and it combines to make water, electricity and heat. So zero emissions are coming out of your car,” said National Renewable Energy Lab spokesman Keith Wipke.
The hydrogen fuel cars were on display at the state Capitol on Monday. The vehicles were made by three different manufacturers and are available in California now.
