SEOUL/NAGOYA, Japan -- Two black shipping containers bearing the Hyundai logo sit side by side in a corner of a thermal plant run by a power company in the South Korean city of Ulsan.

The boxes hold fuel cell systems of the same type used in Hyundai Motor's hydrogen-powered Nexo sport utility vehicle. Each container is a generator with a capacity of 500 kW, enough for 1,100 average households, according to the automaker.
