The General Motors have planned to start a new partnership with The Gas Company (TGC) to meet its target in the future.
To make their plans work, the General Motors has announced the hydrogen infrastructure partnership for Hawaii. This partnership will see many hydrogen fueling stations that will establish on the Oahu Islands.
The Gas Company by now is producing the hydrogen along with the synthetic natural gas, and this mixture will then tap into its thousand mile utility pipeline system just to develop the fueling stations along the island of Oahu. The executive director of GM Global Fuel Cell Activities, Charles Freese said – this is the type of enabler that a hydrogen transportation infrastructure needs, because it addresses both the source of the hydrogen and a feasible way to deliver it for fuel cell vehicle use. He further added that the Hawaii infrastructure could eventually support tens of thousands of fuel cell vehicles.
In general, the state of Hawaii is planning to cut down its petroleum consumption by 70 percent within the coming years, may take several years to fulfill. The new hydrogen infrastructure is expected to play a major role in all of the plans that the General Motors have decided along with The Gas Company. If the plan to build the hydrogen infrastructure for Hawaii is proved to be among the best in its line, then people must consider one thing very accurately. If one sees very clearly to the Island of Oahu, one must understand the actual performance going on behind the curtains.
On the Island of Oahu, there is at present, only 1-hydrogen-powered vehicle could be found. It is a customized Chevrolet Equinox that concerned in the Project Driveway initiative for the GM. When the matter comes from developing the hydrogen fuel stations in Oahu, one more thing appears on the line and that is the General Motors have an uneven past. However, the project Driveway of the company was delayed due to the truck accident that destroyed a hydrogen fuel pump.
After the truck accident, the matter became very serious. Still after this, the company is managing well to overcome from the postponement of their earlier plan. The accident is resulted into the delay of the Project Driveway of the company for several months.
