Southfield, Michigan, Feb. 27 (Bloomberg) -- President George W. Bush's State of the Union Address on Jan. 28 was a signal that hydrogen has elbowed its way to center stage as a player in the debate over clean air and energy security.

Bush's decision to use that speech to ask for $1.2 billion in federal funds to support fuel-cell and hydrogen research was a boost for the emerging technology, which converts hydrogen into electric current while releasing steam as a byproduct.

A few days later, Bush said he wants to see that the first car driven by "a child born today" is powered by hydrogen and pollution free.
