  • The Hyundai Tucson FCEV is currently available for lease in Southern California for less than $500 per month, including free hydrogen fuel. Hydrogen for FCEVs can be produced from a variety of resources all providing emission reductions. Hydrogen derived from natural gas reduces emissions by half and hydrogen produced from renewables cuts total emissions by more than 90% compared to today’s gasoline vehicle. Comparable to today’s gas prices, hydrogen can be produced from low-cost natural gas for approximately $4 per gallon gasoline equivalent when produced at high volumes. | Photo by Sarah Gerrity, Energy Department
    Washington Auto Show Spotlight: How Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles Work

    January 27, 2015 12:57 PM

    Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) are quickly becoming a commercially viable sustainable transportation option for Americans. Unlike gasoline-powered cars, these cutting-edge vehicles are fueled by hydrogen and emit only water. The latest and greatest FCEVs are on display this week at the Washington Auto Show. Learn more about how FCEVs work and what the Energy Department is doing to make them even more energy efficient and cost effective.

    Fuel Cell Technologies Office Reaches Major Patent Milestone

    January 9, 2015 10:01 AM

    Fuel cells are an emerging technology that can provide heat and electricity to buildings and power for vehicles while emitting nothing but water. The Energy Department’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, supports research and development (R&D) that improves the performance and lowers the cost of these systems. The office recently reached a major milestone, with 500 patents resulting from FCTO-supported R&D.
