Tokyo 2020 to pro­mote hy­dro­gen eco­nomics

Metro Canada (Winnipeg) - - METRO DRIVE -

The Ja­pan gov­ern­ment plans to show­case hy­dro­gen-pow­ered fuel-cell ve­hi­cles and other hy­dro­gen tech­nolo­gies at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. It will spend the equiv­a­lent of about $330 mil­lion US through 2020 on hy­dro­gen-in­fra­struc­ture projects. Hy­dro­gen-friendly au­tomak­ers such as Honda (its FCV pic­tured above), Nis­san and Toy­ota re­port­edly will un­der­write some of those costs. Au­thor­i­ties are count­ing on the economies of scale brought by more hy­dro­gen fill­ing sta­tions and “tens of thou­sands” more hy­dro­gen cars on the roads to lower hy­dro­gen-re­lated costs be­tween now and the Games.
