PA County Receives DEP Award for Hydrogen Fleet Demonstration.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently announced that the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute of Centre County has received a $243,828 grant for the demonstration of a hydrogen fueled fleet of vehicles.

According to DEP, the project will demonstrate the "operational reliability" of a vehicle fleet fueled by hydrogen and hydrogen/natural gas provided by a hydrogen fueling station at Penn State University.

DEP noted that the grant was awarded under a $5-million state energy initiative "that will leverage another $13 million in private funds to promote advanced energy technologies proven to generate jobs, improve air quality, preserve land, protect watersheds and enhance energy security."
