New Report on State Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Activity

Washington, DC [] Many states have begun to implement tax credit initiatives, interconnection standards policy and public benefit funds to bring fuel cells and hydrogen to commercialization while bringing economic prosperity and environmental relief to their towns. To address these issues, Breakthrough Technologies Institute, parent organization of Fuel Cells 2000, has released a comprehensive state-by-state analysis of these activities. “State Activities that Promote Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Infrastructure Development” details programs and incentives that specifically include hydrogen, fuel cells and zero emission vehicles. Each state listing is divided into categories reflecting the type of incentive or support provided by state or municipal governments: plans/strategies, standards/regulations, public agency policies/ purchasing programs, incentives/ market stimulation, partnerships, RD&D support, emerging business, and state and locally supported demonstrations.
