Global participation expected at Vancouver Hydrogen & Fuel Cells conference

Vancouver, British Columbia – More than 800 delegates are expected to attend Hydrogen & Fuel Cells 2007, an international conference taking place in Vancouver from April 29 through May 2.

“Vancouver is a natural choice to host this international event,” says John Tak, President and CEO of Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Canada. “British Columbia is globally recognized as a hub for Canada’s world-leading hydrogen and fuel cell sector. Hydrogen & Fuel Cells 2007 could not be more timely, as these clean energy technologies provide solutions to climate change, address air quality concerns, enable secure and reliable energy, and create innovation-based jobs.”

Delegations and exhibitors from Europe, Asia and the U.S. have already registered for the conference, which is jointly organized by Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Canada, the Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia, along with international partners including the U.S. Fuel Cell Council and the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Network of North Rhine Westphalia in Germany. Delegates will attend conference presentations and meetings and also tour Vancouver’s new National Research Council Institute for Fuel Cell Innovation research centre, and follow a hydrogen fuel cell road rally from Vancouver to Whistler and back.
