A fuel cell supply chain is well underway in Ohio. Its progress and implications for industry were discussed during The Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition’s annual symposium in Akron May 13-14. During the conference, U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown made a virtual appearance (by DVD), noting that the government has already invested $2 billion into automotive fuel cell projects and that Congress will consider an energy bill next year offering tax credits for renewable and advanced technology energy development.

Ohio House Speaker Jon Husted appeared live to outline Ohio’s commitment to fuel cell development, including the Third Frontier ballot initiative, allowing the state to invest $100 million to fund start-up companies and help foster partnership with Ohio’s research universities.
