US Senate launches "fuel cell and hydrogen caucus"
Fuel Cells, Aug 03 2012 (The Hydrogen Journal)
- The US Senate is planning to launch a Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Caucus.
A senate policy briefing was held on Wednesday July 18th as a first step.
Senators behind it are Richard Blumenthal (Democrat Connecticut), Lindsey Graham (Republican South Carolina,), John Hoeven (Republican North Dakota), and Chris Coons (Democrat, Delaware.).
The caucus will promote "the continued development and commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in the United States."
The purpose of the briefing was described as "to educate the public about the value of these clean energy technologies – which have helped to create 11,000 jobs in the United States – and to invite innovative ideas to advance the industry."
Also in the Caucus will be senators Daniel Akaka (Democrat, Hawaii), Ron Wyden (Democrat, Oregon), Debbie Stabenow (Democrat, Michigan), and Jon Tester (Democrat, Montana).
“We are on the cusp of a new era for fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. They are about clean energy, good jobs, and dependable and reliable sources of energy,” said Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.
“These technologies will be adapted further, and the potential is unlimited for this integral and essential part of America’s energy future. We have a great group of people involved in this caucus, and I look forward to the work ahead.”
