honda hydrogen charging station

image: hondato help supply energy to the new hydrogen powered cars, honda has developed a new charging station that can provide a full hydrogen charge in only eight hours using solar energy. the new charging units are much smaller than previous versions and are designed to be integrated into user’s garages. each unit can produce 0.5kg of hydrogen in 8 hours, enough to fill a standard car for daily commuting. the unit also doesn’t require storing hydrogen on site, lowering the charging’s carbon dioxide emissions. by connecting the unit to smart grid energy system, users can even sell energy back. for future hydrogen car users the system will help support dispersed quick fill charging stations.
