Electric vehicles are so quietly surprising the librarian

Honda FCX Clarity - Hydrogen car with quiet technology Ad

Hydrogen fuel cell [HFC] vehicles, and by extension, electric vehicles [EV], are quiet, so quiet in fact, that even the librarian will be surprised. I guess the video above is self-explanatory.

Now, the point that this video is making is as applicable to battery-powered electric vehicles as well as hydrogen fuel cell cars. Still, it's a lighthearted look at one thing that makes advanced technology vehicles different than today's fossil fuel-burners.

HFCs and EVs share one common factor, the electric motors, which make them nearly silent. Additionally, unlike noisy internal combustion engines, they have no emissions.

In the case of an HFC vehicle, where the electricity is generated on board, the only emissions are oxygen and water vapor.

The Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) describes itself as "a network of companies pulling together to introduce hydrogen as a fuel." The organization was founded in December 2002 and is lead and managed by the German Ministry of Transport and Industry. 

Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) is a joint project for world's most versatile hydrogen demonstration. It is aiming for emission-free mobility and has several hydrogen stations.

As of May 2010 the CEP is a consortium of thirteen partners: Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe BVG (Berlin transit authority), BMW, Daimler, Ford, GM/Opel, Hamburger Hochbahn (Hamburg transit company), Linde Group, Royal Dutch Shell, Statoil, Total, Toyota, Vattenfall Europe, and Volkswagen Group.
