The challenges faced by alternative fuels during the last 20 years have much in common with those that face hydrogen (i.e., building markets simultaneously for new vehicle technologies, new fuels, and new infrastructure to support them both). The U.S. set goals in the 1980s and 1990s to derive a substantial portion of its fuel for transportation from non-petroleum alternative fuels by the early 2000s (10% in 2000, 30% in 2010).
