For years now, hydrogen powered vehicles have been lauded as the way of the future. Hydrogen, as a fuel source, can be harnessed in very clean and fairly efficient situations. The major setback to hydrogen fuel, however, is obtaining the hydrogen. Current processes for acquiring hydrogen actually require more energy and produce more harmful emissions than combustion engines, a serious flaw that has many environmentalists balking at the idea altogether.

Like many green technologies, though, hydrogen and fuel cell technology is still in its infancy, particularly on the consumer level. As of April, 2007, there were only 200 recorded hydrogen vehicles in the United States. Until we see a significant increase in storage capacity, a drop in the cost of fuel cell technology, and cheaper methods for extracting hydrogen, we’re unlikely to see that number increase. Many researchers argue that the biggest setback to the hydrogen infrastructure is modeling it after the existing petroleum system instead of developing a new system.

Resources

Hydrogen Vehicles at Wikipedia
The Hydrogen Vehicle page at Wikipedia is one of the better resources on the web for a technology that few write about and plenty of people don’t really understand. The site covers everything from the various forms of hydrogen fuel to the political concerns and lobbying that has occurred surrounding hydrogen.

Where Are All the Hydrogen Cars We Were Promised?
Fuel cell-powered vehicles are still the way of the future ... if they can dodge a few big stumbling blocks.

Alternative Fuels Forum at Edmunds
Unfortunately there is no central forum for information and discussion concerning the development of alternative technologies, so keyword generated forums are the best we can do. This site pulls hot topics concerning alternative technologies from the Edmunds forums, and you can bet there’s plenty of hydro info in there. It’s a good spot to check back from time to time. Though there are few posts, the good ones get a lot of hits.

Why Hydrogen Might Still (Eventually) Make Sense
Despite supply hiccups, and past promises that have never quite come to fruition, hydrogen-fuel technologies continue to improve, and the future still looks bright. Two promising solutions are headed to California.
