Hydrogen fuel cells working quite well, thank you, just not in cars yet

A stationary fuel cell that makes enough electricity to power the Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park's Wildlife Encounter Pavilion using only sunlight and water as fuel sources was selected for an honor Monday by the Council for Sustainable Florida. Progress Energy Florida and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection were given the honor as a Best Practice award. Hydrogenics Corp. provided the hydrogen generation system. While the Hydrogenics' website features a photo of cars driving down the highway, the company doesn't seem to be actively working on automobile fuel cells. Still, knowing that a state park in Florida uses sunlight and water to make electricity is encouraging. Here's hoping the hydrogen economy becomes mobile sooner rather than later.
