United Parcel Service has deployed in the U.S. its first three large package delivery vehicles that use hydrogen fuel cells for power.

Chris Mahoney, UPS senior vice president of global transportation services, says shifting away from a fossil-fuel-based economy to a hydrogen economy would be a great environmental and technological achievement.

Atlanta-based UPS now is jumping from a small fuel cell car to a medium-duty truck, he says. "We will continue the rapid application of this technology in hopes that in the near future, we can deploy zero-emission engines across our fleet of 88,000 vehicles," Mahoney says.
