New York State Energy Research and Development Agency (NYSERDA) Award for Hydrogen Vehicle Demonstration

Work continues on the New York State Energy Research and Development Agency (NYSERDA) program to stand up the hydrogen station and acquire the three Ford Escape hybrids. Vehicles are undergoing modification with estimated delivery date of June 15. Quantum is implementing a new hydrogen fuel tank design that promises to give the vehicles extended range over the older baseline design. The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) hydrogen fueling station is planned to open in June. At the invitation of Monroe County, staff participated in a site survey meeting to discuss the construction of a county separate hydrogen dispenser. Dispenser is part of the GM "Project Driveaway" and will be used to operate a county fuel cell vehicle. Located only three miles from RIT , station will allow additional work on hydrogen fueling infrastructure. Facility to be open by the end of April.
