Iceland hosts international hydrogen meeting
Delegates from over 20 countries met in Reykjavik last week to discuss boosting use of hydrogen energy. The session was held under the umbrella of the International partnership for the hydrogen economy (IPHE), launched in Washington D.C. last November. Participants agreed a Reykjavik action plan to develop scoping papers on production and storage of hydrogen, fuel cell applications, and codes and standards. The meeting also decided that IPHE should link with UN education programmes to raise awareness of hydrogen's potential. See IPHE, meeting agenda and Icelandic industry minister's speech.
