The purpose of the Hydrogen Fuel
project is to:


1. Demonstrate Alternative Fuels. Demonstrate the generation of hydrogen and blended hydrogen compressed natural gas and the use of these fuels in motor vehicles.

2. Demonstrate Storage of Energy. Demonstrate hydrogen as a preferable method for the storage of energy.

3. Evaluate. Evaluate alternatives to gasoline that can reduce fossil fuel dependency and improve our environment.

4. Provide Outreach and Education. Conduct public outreach and education about alternative fuels.

5. Establish Partnerships. Coordinate with state and national stakeholders to develop hydrogen fueling infrastructure.

The Town of Hempstead’s Clean Energy Project is an initiative to implement and demonstrate clean, renewable and sustainable energy technologies through strategic partnerships. Solar energy, wind energy and alternative fuels, such as hydrogen, are all part of the Town’s clean energy portfolio.

The demonstration of these technologies is critical through the Town’s outreach and education efforts with the local community. The Clean Energy Project represents a cooperative effort, which includes public and private partners that have provided funding, technical support and guidance, all crucial to successful, clean energy projects.
