Hydrogen and Fuel Cells on the EVDL

683 0
Fuel cells are indeed included in the EVDL charter. View it here :

The relevant passage is : "The energy storage device used to drive said motor
can use any technology including, but not limited to, solar electric, electric
battery, fuel cell, internal combustion engine coupled with an electric
generator (hybrids), or any combination of these."

However, some years ago the list membership reached a consensus that we
should minimize discussion of hydrogen and fuel cells.

There is also significant opposition to discussing the quasi-hybrids from the
automakers since they derive all their energy from gasoline. This opposition
doesn't extend to "plug hybrids."
