Honda unveils new solar hydrogen station

Honda has started to operate its next generation solar hydrogen station prototype at the Los Angeles Center of Honda R&D America. Meant to be a single, integrated unit which can be installed in any garage, the Honda Solar Hydrogen Station might be much smaller than its predecessor, while being capable of producing enough hydrogen (0.5kg) through an 8-hour overnight fill which is enough for the average daily commute (roughly 10,000 miles annually) for each fuel cell electric vehicle. This allows you to refill your vehicle overnight without having to worry about hydrogen storage, resulting in lower CO2 emissions since you take advantage of the more affordable off-peak electrical power rates, while daytime charging is done through the use of solar power.
