Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles

DOE’s Advanced Vehicle Testing Activity (AVTA) teamed with Pinnacle West (holding company of Arizona Public Service) and Electric Transportation Applications (ETA) to construct and operate a hydrogen and compressed natural gas (H/CNG) generation and fueling facility in Phoenix, Arizona. The H/CNG facility provided pure hydrogen, pure CNG, or H/CNG blends to the various internal combustion engine (ICE) test vehicles.
