EU steps up hydrogen fuel cell promotion
The EU has taken first steps towards challenging US and Japanese pre-eminence in hydrogen fuel cell research and promotion by creating a "European partnership" as recommended by a conference in June (EED 17/06/03). In a brief communication presented publicly on Tuesday, the European Commission proposes setting up an multi-stakeholder advisory council. It also identifies key elements of a future integrated European strategy on hydrogen to be implemented through the partnership. See press release and communication.
