Nationwide Hydrogen Fuel Network to Be Created in Germany by 2015


A lot of attention is paid today to green cars, especially the electric ones, but the popularity of hydrogen-powered vehicles is continuously increasing.

These cars will surely become popular after recent announcement from auto companies that billion dollars has been spent by now on fuel cell cars and Germany looks forward to come up with a hydrogen fueling network throughout the country by 2015.

There are 8 companies that plan to finish the construction of the network. These companies are: Daimler, EnBW, Linde, OMV, Shell, Total, Vattenfall and the NOW GmbH National Organisation Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology.

During the first step, planned for 2009-2011, the companies are going to lobby for public transport and start installing fuel stations, informs Gas2.0. Step number two will include the rollout of hydrogen-powered vehicles and the finish of the fuel network construction.

Countries that look forward to adopt the hydrogen fuel cell technology, besides Germany, also include Canada (which is currently working on the creation of a hydrogen highway that will connect Vancouver and Whistler by the 2010 Winter Olympic Games) and Denmark (which has plans to make a hydrogen network that will link Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Germany).
