Shell Hydrogen LLC and the City of White Plains, New York, have installed a hydrogen vehicle fueling station in the city's department of public works. The nice part of this station is that it generates hydrogen with electricity obtained from renewable sources.
Production of hydrogen is expected to be 30 kg per day, which will make unnecessary the installation of pipes or other kind of transport network. According to White Plains Mayor Joseph Delfino, "The station enables White Plains to continue our research and demonstration programming for alternate fuels for which we are recognized throughout the Northeastern region."
The station is part of a U. S. Dept. of Energy program in which Shell provides hydrogen and General Motors the fuel cell vehicles. GM will supply more than 30 Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell SUVs to private and commercial customers in Westchester County who will take part in the "Project Driveway" test drive.
