Global energy challenges, including climate change, energy security and air quality, require that we transform the way we produce and use energy in transportation and other sectors. To reach long-term goals for deep reductions in transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions, more efficient vehicles, lower carbon fuels, and electric drive technologies will play important roles. Hydrogen (H2) and fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) are one of many solutions that will be needed to address these challenges.
