Time to scale up – CaFCP says progress needs to accelerate

Bill Elrick has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the widespread adoption of hydrogen as an alternative fuel source, but he remains realistic about current progress.

Elrick is Executive Director of the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), an industry/government collaboration aimed at expanding the market for hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) to help create a cleaner, more energy-diverse future with zero emission vehicles.
