Germany launched the world's first hydrogen powered train.

Built by the French manufacturer TGV Alstom, two trains have begun to travel within a distance of 100 kilometers between the cities of Cuxhaven and Buxtehude in northern Germany.

Alstom announced that by 2021 it plans to deliver another 14 zero-emission trains.

Hydrogen trains are equipped with combustion cells that produce electricity through a combination of hydrogen and oxygen, a process that leaves steam and water as the only emissions and is an alternative to diesel trains running on non-electric lines.

Excessive energy is stored in batteries on board the train.

Note that Coradia iLint trains can run 1,000 kilometers with a single hydrogen tank.
