Fuel Cell Organizations Reach Agreement

November 7, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] At the 2003 Fuel Cell Seminar in Miami, Florida, the U.S. Fuel Cell Council, Fuel Cell Commercialization Conference of Japan, Fuel Cells Canada and World Fuel Cell Council/Fuel Cell Europe (collectively representing more than 300 businesses, research institutions and others interested in fuel cells and hydrogen) entered into an agreement designed to advance global commercialization of fuel cells. The agreement calls for cooperation and collaboration on significant aspects of commercialization. The parties agreed to meet annually to promote policies that will lead to universal access to markets for all fuel cell products and help minimize trade barriers to global fuel cell commercialization; work with governments and standards development organizations to achieve harmonized codes, standards and regulations at all appropriate levels; advance the understanding of fuel cells and related technologies and fuels among policy makers, technical audiences and the general public; encourage worldwide adoption of common test protocols, measurement guidelines and practices designed to promote compatibilities; and share educational materials and other information and collaborate on communications messages in a spirit of openness and collaboration.
