DOE has outlined a Market Transformation  strategy for demonstrating the commercial viability of fuel cell  power in applications for which there is a business case, and communicating the potential environmental and economic benefits of the clean energy technologies. Current results of an ongoing multiyear study of fuel-cell powered vehicles , supported by the DOE EERE [abstract  and full text in OSTI’s Information Bridge] were published in February 2012. The report includes recommendations to the Energy Department about needs for investigation during the remaining 3-4 years of the study and about ways to commercialize the technology.
