A major obstacle to greater adoption of hydrogen-fueled cars and trucks is the simple matter of getting the light element from the large plants where it’s produced to the service station pump. Now two companies have announced plans to generate and store hydrogen at the point of sale using their compact modular systems.

Meanwhile, PowerTap Hydrogen of Vancouver, Canada, says it will install 10 of its hydrogen fueling systems at existing service stations in northern California later this year. They are expected to fuel that state’s small fleet of hydrogen-powered long-haul trucks.
