Japanese rail research group successfully test fuel cell train
Their research and development began in 2001 as they aimed to develop a railway system that would reduce noise and gas emissions as well as eliminate the requirement for a power-feeding facility. In 2003, RTRI succeeded in testing a 30 kW-class fuel cell while their latest achievement was the successful test of a 100 kW-class system.
Over the next two years they plan to develop a fuel cell system for commercial railway operations.
