Building Hydrogen Economy One Block at the Time

The Governor's S-7-04 executive order states "BE IT FURTHER ORDERED that California's 21 interstate freeways shall be designated as the California Hydrogen Highway Network and . . . shall work with . . . local and regional government organizations, educators, energy providers, automakers, fuel cell products suppliers. . . " Governor Schwarzenegger's order has foreseen the United States struggling with the socio-economic aftershocks of the dependence on foreign oil. Hydrogen economy is a likely long-term solution to the dependence on oil, global warming, and clean air concerns associated with the transportation sector. Production of hydrogen from domestic fossil resources, while a short-term alternative, is inferior to electrolysis utilizing renewable energy as a comprehensive solution to clean transportation.
