UCLA’s School of Engineering and Applied Science is not a foreign player in the search for alternative fuel sources. For the past 30 years, it has conducted in-depth research regarding hydrogen fuel. With the prices of gasoline on the rise and the knowledge that fossil fuel sources cannot be replenished, companies such as Daimler Chrysler are taking note and designing and manufacturing "hybrid vehicles" that combine the traditional use of fossil fuel as a source of energy with more environmentally friendly methods.
