Abstract

Hydrogen-fuel-cell vehicles (H2FCV) have been proposed as a potential solution to many transportation, energy, and environmental problems (e.g., [1-6]) and are receiving the attention of all of the world’s major automotive and energy companies. Nevertheless, currently expensive, of limited driving range per refueling, and lacking a refueling infrastructure, H2FCVs face similar challenges faced by past alternative-fuel vehicle (AFV) efforts, whose momentum typically could not be sustained over periods of low oil prices (e.g., [7, 8]). How might H2FCVs (or any AFV) succeed where past efforts have failed?
