This is an ongoing Hawai‘i Natural Energy Institute (HNEI) activity supported in part by the US Department of Energy, Office of Naval Research, and the State of Hawai‘i Hydrogen Fund. In addition to HNEI, project partners include the Hawai‘i Center for Advanced Transportation Technologies and Marine Corps Base (MCB) Hawai‘i. The project involves the installation of a hydrogen production, storage, and dispensing system for fueling General Motors Equinox fuel cell electric vehicles at MCB Hawai‘i. Transportation at MCB Hawai‘i would make use of ‘green’ technology. The use of hydrogen under this activity would permit validation of fuel cell vehicle operation, and would help to reduce barriers to the introduction of the hydrogen infrastructure required to advance the “Hydrogen Economy.”
The primary HNEI contact for this project is Mitch Ewan. For more information concerning the project, see the Hydrogen for GM Equinox Fuel Cell Vehicles pdf document. A similar project, providing hydrogen for vehicles at the Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, can be seen in the Hydrogen for Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park Vehicles section of our website.
