Hawaii continues interest in fuel cells with seminar.

The 30th Fuel Cell Seminar held last week in Hawaii brought together experts, academics, and entrepreneurs to examine the latest technological advances and practical applications for fuel cell technology.

Organizers of the four-day event said the seminar offered the largest ever number of technical papers, exhibits and coverage of the latest advances in the field.

More than 2,300 participants and 175 exhibiting companies from 36 countries attended the seminar, held at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu.

Hawaii lawmakers have aimed to establish the islands as a model hydrogen and fuel-cell economy in the US. Earlier this month, state officials unveiled the first hydrogen fueling station for fuel cell vehicles in Hawaii.

The $1.5 million hydrogen fueling station at Hickam Air Force Base is part of an alternative-fuel-vehicle development program launched five years ago.
