"However, consumer access to this new technology will be limited to the regions where infrastructure accommodates hydrogen refueling. So far, California has made the biggest investment in establishing such an infrastructure. For fuel cells to prosper across the nation, the infrastructure needs to expand beyond one state. This will require close collaboration between industry stakeholders and bipartisan support from state and federal government officials."
