Complicating matters? Ten hydrogen buses coming to London

London is one of the most noticeable battlegrounds in the fight for cleaner transportation. Headlined by the ongoing battle between Porsche and mayor Ken Livingstone, the fight also includes scuffles over motorcycles in bus lanes and new bicycle lanes. So, into this tempest, why not drop the oh-so-uncontroversial issue of hydrogen?
That's just whats happening thanks to a new agreement signed by Air Products and Transport for London. Air Products will build a hydrogen fueling station in central London that will supply hydrogen for a fleet of buses that will be in operation by 2010. The American company ISE will deliver ten hydrogen buses to TfL: five that use fuel cells and five that burn hydrogen in internal combustion engines.
