The rapid growth of the hydrogen fuel industry

The hydrogen fuel industry continues to grow at a steady pace. Demand is rising as more nations heed the call of energy independence by breaking their reliance of oil. Despite skeptics and opposition in political circles, hydrogen is beginning to establish itself as the fuel of choice for the transportation industry. Many supporters of the fuel claim that it is only a matter of time before hydrogen is accepted as the successor of oil.

Hydrogen’s momentum is due, in part, to small communities of users in both the private and public sectors. Canada is home to several such communities who are using the fuel to power their various ventures and projects. As a result, these communities are showing the viability and efficiency of hydrogen fuel cells.

As with most technologies that seek to change the social and cultural climate, awareness and education is fundamental to the success of hydrogen fuel. To this end, Canada will be host to the Hydrogen + Fuel Cells 2011: International Conference & Exhibition. The event is only open to members of the mediahydrogen fuel industry

and will showcase a number of innovative fuel cells. Conference officials promise that the event will forgo usual pomp and circumstance many have come to expect from such gatherings and instead focus on actually exhibition of fuel cell technology.

The conference will begin May 16th, with members of the media privy to a special luncheon before actual exhibitions begin.
