The Market for Hydrogen Fueling Stations is on the Rise Giner Highway Refueling Station. With rapidly growing volumes of fuel cell vehicles in use around the world — from passenger cars to buses to fork-lift trucks and trains — there is a rapidly growing need for hydrogen generation systems to make the hydrogen fuel for these vehicles.
SimpleFuel™ Your On-Site Hydrogen Fueling Station: Automotive-Fleet-Industrial. SimpleFuel™ is an on-site hydrogen generation, compression, storage and dispensing appliance that uses water and electricity to produce high purity fuel cell-grade hydrogen.
A hydrogen highway is a chain of hydrogen-equipped filling stations and other infrastructure along a road or highway. Italy and Germany are collaborating to build a hydrogen highway between Mantua in northern Italy and Munich in southern Germany. Italy completed building a hydrogen filling station in Mantua on 21 September 2007.
Hydrogen Fueling Infrastructure Analysis. NREL's technology validation team is analyzing the availability and performance of existing hydrogen fueling stations, benchmarking the current status, and providing feedback related to capacity, utilization, station build time, maintenance, fueling, and geographic coverage.

Saudi Arabia’s First Hydrogen Fueling Station. Artist rendering of Saudi Arabia’s first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle fueling station to be jointly built by Saudi Aramco and Air Products.
President George W. Bush, when he was in office, allocated approximately $2 billion in hydrogen highway research funds. Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was pushing to get 200 H2 fueling stations built by 2010 stretching from Vancouver, British Columbia, all the way down to Baja, California (but had fallen short of this goal because of a poor economy and lack of political will).
An important factor in the performance of hydrogen fueling is the station’s dispensing equipment cooling capability and the resultant fuel delivery temperature “T” rating.
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the Universe. Counting the atoms, probably over 90% of all mass is hydrogen. Nikola has chosen Nel ASA as the sole equipment supplier to create the largest hydrogen network in the world that will cover over 2,000 miles and include 16 stations. Nikola has already kicked off two of the 16 stations and 14 more will follow immediately after installation.
