Remember Honda’s hydrogen car? Its fuel cells could soon power data centers

Honda is repurposing the hydrogen fuel cells once used in its discontinued Clarity model – the only hydrogen powered car in the US – and now using them as backup power for their own data centers in LA. 

The automotive giant told TechCrunch (opens in new tab) that for now, it is merely a “proof of concept”, but that it hopes to make it a practical reality and eventually sell them to other data centers – perhaps those used by colocation or cloud hosting providers.
