Clemson University is talking with a California company that makes fuel cells to power their graduate school of automotive engineering under construction at the International Center for Automotive Research. The proposed fuel cell would use natural gas or propane which would then generate the electricity used by the site, and during off peak times make hydrogen for use in vehicles.
The money for the project would come from the South Carolina Hydrogen Infrastructure Development Fund, which is to be used to further a possible hydrogen economy in the state.

Other projects planned by Clemson University include an alternative fuels research laboratory. It will be interesting to see what comes of this as, judging from comments on this site, the debate between hydrogen, electricity and alternative fuels rages on. A major University researching both could mean advancements made on both sides.
