U.S. Fuel Cell Council: New Report on Fuel Cell Power for Vehicles

The U.S. Fuel Cell Council (USFCC), the trade association for the fuel cell industry, released its latest report, "Fuel Cell Power for Vehicles," at the Society of Automotive Engineers' 2001 World Congress which opened today at the Cobo Center in Detroit. The full report can be found on the USFCC's web site at www.usfcc.com .

The 28-page report discusses the state-of-the-art of fuel cell cars and buses, and includes a comprehensive listing of the prototype fuel cell vehicles now on the road. The heart of the report is descriptions of the transportation fuel cell activities of 30 members of the Council. Automakers, fuel cell manufacturers, energy providers, component suppliers, and state agencies describe their efforts to bring fuel cell vehicles to the marketplace. The report also includes a detailed fuel cell vehicle glossary of terms, a useful tool in understanding this emerging technology.

"Fuel cell technology has moved out of the laboratory, and can now be found under the hood of many vehicle manufacturer's prototype passenger cars and buses," said Ron Sims, chairman of the USFCC's Transportation Working Group, and a Staff Technical Specialist with the Ford Motor Company's fuel cell program team. "A global effort is underway to bring clean and efficient fuel cell vehicles to dealer showrooms."

"The fuel cell industry is extremely dynamic, with breakthrough ideas for new materials and components coming from traditional automotive suppliers and innovative startups," said USFCC Executive Director Robert Rose. "The report provides a guide to the companies working to bring fuel cell vehicles, and the fueling infrastructure necessary to serve them, to the marketplace."

The U.S. Fuel Cell Council includes virtually all the major developers of fuel cell technology, key industry suppliers, and potential customers. With more than 70 members, the Council is dedicated to the commercialization of fuel cell technology for automotive, stationary and portable power applications.

PA DEP Awards More Than $375,000 in Alternative-Fuel Grants

On behalf of Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary James M. Seif today announced more than $375,000 in grants to 28 companies, organizations and individuals to purchase alternative-fuel vehicles, to build refueling stations and to develop new alternative-fuel technology.

"We are excited that so many organizations and individuals are making a commitment to use and promote alternative fuels," Secretary Seif said. "Twenty of the grant recipients are private citizens who took advantage of our offer to provide $1,500 toward the purchase of hybrid-electric vehicles. These vehicles get great gas mileage, which means fewer gasoline emissions and bigger savings for the consumer."
