"Fuel cells create electricity by stripping electrons from hydrogen atoms; the hydrogen then bonds to oxygen to create water, while the electrons power the electric motor.

A key part of President Biden’s ambitious infrastructure bill is incentives to increase the adoption and use of alternative fuel vehicles. Some of those car and truck options run on hydrogen fuel cells, and they need infrastructure too. These are what I call “the other electric vehicles,” because they run on electricity but not on batteries like your neighbor’s Tesla.
