Hydrogen vs. EV - The Fight for the Fueling Future

Hi Larry​,

With the pending Inflation Reduction Act offering incentives and infrastructural support for both electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell cars, conversations in many corners are once again turning to the question of which of these alternative fuel solutions paves the way to a better, cleaner - and more realistic - future. While EVs have an enormous lead over hydrogen right now, some skepticism remains as to how feasible current electrification goals are when the grid is already taxed to the point of brownouts with a minuscule portion of said goals being accomplished in ambitious states such as California. By contrast, hydrogen's significant advantages in efficiency has not translated to any kind of relative popularity, owing in part to the stations being much more expensive to install.

If you're interested in this topic, I can arrange an interview with the co-owners of GrayBirch Construction ( , a major California-based construction group that works extensively on both EV charging stations and hydrogen fueling stations. The company's co-owners, Andrew Birch and Robert Gray, can talk candidly and dive into data about how EV and hydro stations stack up to each other, in terms of cost, popularity and efficiency - and offer their insight as to the direction the nation's leading state on these developments is heading. Please let me know if you're interested, thank you!

All the best,

Jon Winslow
