General Motors has confirmed it will open a hydrogen fueling station in Los Angeles together with Clean Energy Corp. in a bid to promote the benefits of the clean-burning fuel as well as GM’s progress in the field of alternative fuels and powertrains. The two companies are also open to expanding the new hydrogen infrastructure in the hope that it will build acceptance among consumers that hydrogen could one day be worthy alternative to petrol.

Clean Energy is the leading provider of natural gas products for transportation in North America and is providing its expertise at storing and delivery the fuel.

The hydrogen station will be used by drivers taking part in Chevrolet's Project Driveway, the world's largest market test of fuel cell vehicles, as well the hydrogen fuel-cell limo service being run by GM and Virgin Atlantic for its international passengers.

The Project Driveway program will see more than 100 Equinox fuel cell vehicles leased to customers around the world, with the first cars already delivered in Los Angeles, New York City and Washington D.C.
