Hydrogen Engine Center

All these engines, battery, fuel cell or internal combustion, are designed to run on fuel from renewable energy resources (electricity or "liquid electricity: hydrogen"). However, the Republican Party that has been running my country sold its honor to Big Oil eight years ago. But at least the engine technology is ready. (By the way, hydrogen internal combustion is nearly as efficient as fuel cell with efficiency around 30-percent.)
