[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Florida Governor Jeb Bush unveiled his administration’s budget priorities for the next year aimed at increasing protection for Florida’s natural resources. Among the priorities is an effort to launch the state as a front runner in developing next-generation energy technology — particularly hydrogen. Much like his brother President George W. Bush in the White House, Jeb Bush appears to have a specific interest in hydrogen despite the challenges associated with a move toward a hydrogen infrastructure. The Governor’s administration is proposing USD$12.9 million in grants and $2.1 million in tax incentives to support the latest advances in hydrogen energy technology. No major new proposals were announced in support of other renewable energy technologies like solar, wind, and biofuels. At the federal level, hydrogen technologies have received President George W. Bush administration’s backing but some energy and environment experts argue funds are being diverted from other renewable energy technologies.
