The European Union's Quick Start program to promote the use of hydrogen may soon put a small fleet on the road. HyICE (Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine) is a collaboration between BMW, Volvo, and other automotive companies, formed with the goal of sweating the details of using hydrogen in existing IC engines. Such a strategy could smooth the transition into fuel cells, if that technology cannot keep pace with H2 generation techniques. The outcome of this phase of development will hopefully be approximately 100 vehicles that would be offered for purchase. BMW has a long history, relatively speaking, of prototyping H2 IC engines, so it should be very interesting to see what comes out of this effort.
