First hydrogen public fuelling station opens in Iceland

According to Ecoticias (in Spanish), Iceland opened the world's first hydrogen fuelling station for a bus fleet four years ago. Icelandic New Energy, the owner of the station, has decided that from now on, the station will be open for everybody who wants to fill up any hydrogen-fuelled vehicle.
New Energy's plans for hydrogen are backed up by Iceland's government, which aims to have 40 percent of the vehicles running on the streets of Reykjavík to be hydrogen-powered by 2009. The plan goes even further: Iceland aims for be a fossil fuel-free country by 2050.

The good thing is that the availability of geothermal and hydroelectric resources in the country is so good that Iceland can produce hydrogen from non-polluting sources.
