Fuel cell developer ENER1 received a $550,000 award from the Florida Hydrogen Initiative to develop a renewable energy source that will power a rest area on an interstate highway. The company's 10 KW fuel cell based energy source will use methanol created from Florida's two largest industries -- food waste from theme parks and orange peels from citrus processing.

"This landmark project allows us to publicly demonstrate how our renewable energy technology translates directly into applications that can have an immediate impact on the environment." - Kevin Fitzgerald, CEO of ENER1
