Washington, DC and London, England, 5 February 2002 – With Toyota, Honda, GM, Nissan, Ford, Daihatsu, Mazda, and DaimlerChrysler all having hydrogen fuel cell vehicles operating on public roads somewhere in the world and many planning to introduce dozens more this year, people are beginning to stop doubting the validity of fuel cellv ehicles and starting to wonder where exactly these hydrogen vehicles will be fueling up.

Fuel Cells 2000, www.fuelcells.org, and Fuel Cell Today, www.fuelcelltoday.com, have responded byp roviding the most comprehensive guide and information package on hydrogenf ueling stations. Fuel Cell Today’s worldwide hydrogen fueling station report, combined with Fuel Cells 2000’s worldwide hydrogen fueling station reference chart creates an impressive informational package and practically dismisses the popular ‘chicken and the egg’ dilemma.

"Arguing the notion of ‘which will come first, the fuel cell vehicles or the hydrogen infrastructure’ doesn’t hold much weight any more – they will gradually be introduced together," says Brian Walsh, Technical Manager of Fuel Cells 2000. "Real hydrogeni nfrastructures are developing in California, Europe and Japan, in support of growing fuel cell vehicle fleets," says Walsh.

"Even though there are still major hurdles to overcome – especially when it comes to production, distribution and storage of the gas – the hydrogen infrastructure will come", added Stefan Geiger, author of Fuel Cell Today’s survey. "The European bus project is just one example of the progress being made in this area of fuel cell and hydrogen technology."

Both free, Fuel Cells 2000’s chart is available at: www.fuelcells.org/charts.htm, and Fuel Cell Today’s report is available at: www.fuelcelltoday.com/surveys.

Fuel Cells 2000 is a non-profit educational and outreach organization, which seeks to promote the development, demonstration and commercialization of fuel cells, an advancede lectrochemical energy generation technology.

Fuel Cell Today is a global internet portal which aims to accelerate the commercialisation of fuel cells. Through a single free location, www.fuelcelltoday.com provides users with a comprehensive source of industry information, news, analysis and commentary.
