Fuel cells help drive Ohio's innovation economy - Congress can keep it that way:

Fuel cells have long been viewed as a breakthrough technology for transportation and stationary power, offering unprecedented efficiency, ultralow emissions and the potential to use current fuels as well as renewable fuels.

Recognizing fuel cells' potential to expand manufacturing, the state of Ohio planted the seeds to allow a new dynamic industry to flourish in the state.

In the early 2000s, for instance, Ohio's Fuel Cell Program, under the broader Third Frontier program, offered millions of dollars for low-interest loans, research and development, and worker training. Another one of those seeds was the creation of the Elyria-based Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition, which has received grant funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and sparked further growth.

The fuel cell industry now includes a broad network of supply chain participants, several fuel cell integrators, and researchers developing breakthrough technologies spread throughout dozens of our cities.

This strong base and dedicated support from the state has prompted leading innovative companies, such as LG Fuel Cell Systems (in North Canton) and Johnson Matthey ex-Catacel (in Ravenna), to choose Ohio to invest and expand. (continued at link)

Congratulations to Ohio!

Because...Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellen sind die Zukunft

If anyone told the Germans that Hydrogen and Fuel Cells don't work, they didn't listen. Now they are kicking ass and taking names. Maybe the US can catch up-maybe not- toppling the elected leader in Syria seems to be more important. ($200 million every 24 hours towards war- no wonder US R&D suffers). ONE DAY OF WAR FUNDING COULD JUMPSTART A NATIONAL H2 Infrastructure program. ONE DAY.

Wasserstoff und Brennstoffzellen = JOBS for the 94 million out of work Americans. Thanks Ohio!
