Over 1,000,000 zero-emission miles powered by True Zero's Hydrogen Network

Hydrogen powered fuel cell cars make significant gains on California roads

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- True Zero (http://www.truezero.com), which operates the world's largest network of retail hydrogen-charging stations, reached a major milestone last week of powering more than 1,000,000 zero-emission miles by fuel cell vehicles. True Zero opened its first charging station nine months ago, so the milestone signals a major ramp up in recent months of fuel-cell vehicles on California roads.

The achievement of a million miles comes as a result of automakers, including Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and Mercedes-Benz expanding their fuel-cell-vehicle programs. Toyota has recently accelerated sales of its hydrogen-powered Mirai in California, as the hydrogen-charging network has also grown quickly. Honda will begin selling its mass-production Honda Clarity in California this fall, after beginning retail sales of the car in Japan earlier this year.

"We're starting to see the real impact of what we set out to do two years ago," said Joel Ewanick, founder and CEO of First Element Fuel, True Zero's parent. "And that was to help get more electric cars on the road by making retail hydrogen readily available in California."

Between November 2015 and May 2016, True Zero completed building 15 hydrogen stations throughout California, 14 of which are open for retail fueling. The True Zero Network of hydrogen-charging stations spans from Lake Tahoe, through the San Francisco Bay Area and down into Santa Barbara, Los Angeles and Orange Counties, including a hydrogen-charging station off Interstate 5 at Harris Ranch which helps enable the drive between Northern and Southern California.

The network will soon expand into San Diego, where True Zero recently broke ground..snip

1. How is a natural gas powered car emission free?

Sorry hydrogen is a boondoggle and (essentially) all commercial hydrogen is made from natural gas. Hydrogen is a very very very expensive way to a make a low efficiency electric car.

2. So glad you asked!









You can drive throughout Denmark on Hydrogen produced from renewable energy. Now why don't more people know about that?

Hydrogen is a very very very expensive way to a make a low efficiency electric car.


Coming soon- $2.00 per Kilogram Hydrogen. That will change the world. Just watch. and that $2/Kg figure is about what one would pay to charge a Tesla Model S from electricity made from burning coal.

3. Taking an already burnable fuel, natural gas, and adding energy to create an energy carrier

hydrogen + a carbon byproduct.

For their next trick maybe they can turn iron into gold.
