EU Official Comments on Progress of Hydrogen Economy.

European Union (EU) officials recently reported that EU research commissioner Philippe Busquin informed attendees at last week's European Hydrogen Energy Conference in Grenoble, France that the EU expects to have a hydrogen "technology platform" established by the end of the year as the next step toward developing a "hydrogen economy."

"The projects, structures, networks and initiatives that will focus on hydrogen and fuel cells are at the heart of the technology platform," said Busquin. "It will allow Europe to move forward with a united front, and speak with one voice on the international stage."

According to officials, Busquin also noted that European hydrogen research and policies are currently "fragmented," and that EU member states will need to actively participate in the development of regional and national platform projects.
