ITM Power hydrogen fueling station for the home

ITM Power is now offering a refueling stating for the home that utilizes an electolyzer to produce hydrogen gas from water and electricity. The hydrogen fueling station also offers home energy storage as it can be converted back into electricity with the aid of an internal combustion generator to provide power to the house.
Right now the technology is not perfect and the system can only product enough hydrogen overnight to allow a hydrogen powred car to travel about 40km (25 miles). ITM Power says the system could be commercially available as soon as this year and price could get as low as $4000 in mass production. The company predicts that public high-pressure refueling stations offering upto 160km (100 miles) range could be install around the country making this technology much more practical.
