Hydrogen Energy Plan

Archived: 08/01/2007

The Montana Hydrogen Energy Plan aims to develop and establish Montana as a key state in the hydrogen economy. The Montana Hydrogen Futures Project has been established as the key economic development focus of the state, such that by the year 2020, 50% of all vehicles and equipment in Montana and 100% of all state-run vehicles will be powered by alternative fuels; all intercity bus systems will use hydrogen; distribution of synthetic fuels and hydrogen will be provided for the trucking industry; a school bus retrofit and hydrogen power program will be established; and incentives will be provided for converting internal combustion engines to operate on hydrogen.
