Some of the most promising technologies identified were organic liquid hydrogen carriers that can be transported and dispensed like today's petroleum based fuels, using much of the existing distribution and fueling infrastructure, thereby reducing the cost of new infrastructure to a fraction of high pressure gaseous or cryogenic liquid alternatives. In addition, they have the potential to meet the cost and performance goals established by the DOE hydrogen program for on-vehicle storage . SCIES is working to demonstrate this promising technology in a small vehicle application.
