The US Air Force is demonstrating hydrogen (H2) as an alternate fuel source at at Joint Base Pear Harbour-Hickam in Hawaii.
In a recent visit to JB Pearl Harbor-Hickam, members of the Air Force Civil Engineer Center’s Energy and Operations directorates were given a tour of the installation’s H2 production facility and shown several of the vehicles that use this alternative fuel.
This project, which is part of a cooperative agreement between the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Hawaii Center for Advanced Transportation Technologies, has been in place for more than a decade. Originally installed in 2006 as a mobile H2 production, compression, storage, and dispensing unit, it was upgraded in 2010.
Both systems were set up to support all Department of Defense H2 vehicle testing, to include both H2 internal combustion and fuel cell vehicles. Some of the H2 vehicles currently supported by this station include a 25 passenger crew bus, a MJ-1E fighter weapons loader and a U-30 heavy aircraft tug.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Siemens have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to pilot the Gulf’s first solar-driven hydrogen (H2) electrolysis facility.
