Spending $100 million annually on fuel cells, DOE aims to get hydrogen prices down between $2 and $4 per gallon of gasoline equivalent. Satyapal added that researchers' goal is a fuel cell durable enough to run for 150,000 miles and efficient enough to run for 300 miles per fill-up.
Researchers are well on their way to meeting these targets, and after 2015, Satyapal expects a hydrogen-powered car may appear on a driveway near you.
