At its booth, the council will provide information on the state of the art of fuel cells for a wide variety of applications, as well as information on the USFCC role in the development of codes and standards for the industry. “The US Fuel Cell Council has been actively involved in the development of codes and standards for the industry,” said Robert Rose, USFCC executive director. “Our presence at the CODES EXPO 2002 serves to educate code officials on the wide variety of fuel cell applications and the status of those products en route to the marketplace.” The second leg of the USFCC’s September travels will bring them to the Power 2002 Conference, September 29-October 2, in Los Angeles. Power 2002 is the tenth annual international conference on power requirements for mobile computing, wireless electronic devices and business/consumer applications. In Los Angeles, the council will provide information on the development of fuel cells for small portable power applications, such as household appliances, handheld electronics, laptop computers and cellular telephones. Also available will be materials from the association’s member companies working on these types of fuel cells.
