A Matter of Economic Opportunity

Massachusetts citizens pay a price for being at the end of the energy pipeline: increasing costs, supply volatility, and dependence on energy from outside the state and region. Massachusetts has the opportunity to significantly impact the local economy by leveraging the Commonwealth’s entrepreneurial know-how, venture capital, and quality workforce to bolster its leadership in the creation of advanced clean transportation solutions.

Hydrogen is an increasingly important part of the region’s current clean energy economy. Why? Simply put, hydrogen offers the benefits of electricity with the convenience of fuel. The result: Zero emissions. Zero compromise

Massachusetts Offers Examples on National Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Day

In the past year, awareness around the use of hydrogen has continued to grow. In Massachusetts alone, where Nuvera is based, there are now several hydrogen stations which separately serve fuel cell vehicle demonstrations, industrial forklift operations, and most recently the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), which operates a fuel cell transit bus in revenue generating service.

Hyster-Yale Group Publishes Corporate Responsibility Report

As part of a large global company with corporate responsibility objectives focused on long-term growth, Nuvera is among the companies developing environmentally and financially sustainable motive power solutions. Our commitment to corporate responsibility plays a key role in the Hyster-Yale Group ‘2026 Vision’ initiative to minimize environmental impacts and conserve natural resources.

Zero-Emissions Fuel Cell Bus and Hydrogen Station in Service at MBTA

PRESS RELEASE: Billerica, Mass. — Nuvera helped celebrate Boston’s first zero-emissions fuel cell bus and hydrogen refueling station at a recent press event attended by Massachusetts and MBTA officials. The bus and station are deployed at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) through the National Fuel Cell Bus Program (NFCBP), which is sponsored by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The NFCBP is helping bring fuel cell and hydrogen technology into everyday use and expand clean transportation in our nation. 

Hydrogen-powered fuel cells enable zero-emissions buses to run by converting hydrogen fuel into electricity and water with no exhaust pollutants. The result is an electric vehicle that is quickly refueled instead of being recharged. Fuel cells increase fuel economy, reduce use of petroleum, and advance U.S. energy independence since hydrogen is produced domestically.

Eastern Lift Truck, Nuvera, and Hydrogen in NYC

At the 29th Annual Vehicle and Equipment Show presented by the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), representatives and operation managers of government agencies seeking more productive and sustainable electric forklift power had the opportunity to visit the Nuvera display presented by Eastern Lift Truck. Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC, a 2016 proposal provider in support of Mayor DeBlasio’s NYC Clean Fleets Initiative, showed how electric forklifts can be fueled in as little as 2 minutes. The zero-emissions Nuvera® fuel cell system is a drop-in power option for replacing lead acid batteries in electric sit-down, reach, and pallet rider trucks (watch video at the end of this post).

Hydrogen-Powered Ports

On November 10, 2016, 100 government officials, terminal operators, environmental advocates, and technology solutions providers met at the Port of Los Angeles to discuss how the use of hydrogen in the nation’s seaports can dramatically reduce toxic air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions. The Port of LA is the busiest in the nation and the 9th largest in the world. It was an ideal setting for a workshop convened by the California Hydrogen Business Council to explore how hydrogen and fuel cells solutions at ports can address some of the most pressing environmental issues of today.

As fuel cell vehicle markets grow, experts weigh in on the convenience and safety of hydrogen

Consumers are reluctant to compromise on convenience, power, range or safety to support zero emissions vehicle (ZEV) mandates set out by ZEV States. Automakers understand this, as noted by an advanced technology manager of a leading manufacturer, “If society’s goals are to reduce carbon from the transportation side, they only have a few options and from our point of view, [hydrogen] is the most compelling one.”[i] 

Furthering this idea, zeroemissions.org provides fuel cell vehicle (FCV) facts to support the idea of zero emissions with zero compromise.
