This is an excerpt from EERE network news, a weekly electronic newsletter.

The army introduced a fleet of 16 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles on 22 February, the army, Navy, air force and Marines test in Hawaii in an effort, the research of renewable energy sources and dependence on oil. The zero-emission vehicles Development Engineering Center, research by the army tank automotive Office of Naval Research and air force research laboratories financed. The renewable hydrogen, fuel cell vehicles up to 200 miles on a single charge of travel and refuel in five minutes.

The fleet of fuel cell vehicles is the latest effort of the Hawaii-hydrogen initiative, a partnership of 13 agencies, companies and universities. The group is also hydrogen infrastructure elements test, so that other States a similar approach to can take. DOE's Office of energy efficiency and renewable energy is the technical and economic analysis of vehicles. DOE has the research and development of hydrogen and fuel-cell technologies, such as catalysts, and membranes, in the last ten years have been the grants. Such technologies are the provision of fuel-cell vehicles and enable stations such as in Hawaii. See the press release of the army and DOE's fuel cell technologies program site.
