Zero Emissions Vehicles Market an Opportunity for Congress

There are two types of commercialized zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) available to consumers today, the fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) and the battery electric vehicle (BEV). Both types of vehicles support greenhouse gas reductions, improve local air quality, and reduce reliance on oil. Many automakers are now investing in fuel cells as an essential technology to create consumer-friendly zero-carbon transportation options.

EPA Qualifies Hydrogen from Biogas for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles Under Expanded Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) Pathways Rule

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) requires importers and producers of transportation fuel to include percentages of various kinds of renewable fuel in the overall volume they import or produce each year. Importers and producers may acquire fuel credits known as Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) to demonstrate that they have met the requirement. On July 2nd the EPA qualified additional fuel pathways to include hydrogen generated from biogas projects for powering fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). This addition is a critical first step toward the 2022 Renewable Volume Obligation (RVO) of 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels used in transportation. The RVO obligation represents an increase of cellulosic biofuel use in U.S. transportation by 2,666 times from 2013 levels.

DOE Plans Hydrogen Push

It’s an exciting time in the automotive industry. That excitement is doubled for those of us in the hydrogen and fuel cell industry. Word has gotten out that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will soon launch a campaign called H2USA that will give hydrogen and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) a well-deserved boost.
