HFCIWG

In brief: The Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Interagency Working Group (HFCIWG) has officially launched with a new website, tying key governmental agencies together around hydrogen and fuel cells.

The word

HFCIWG Website

The HFCIWG launched their website, Hydrogen.gov, and with it the intergovernmental initiative to research, develop, and promote hydrogen-fueled energy sources for various uses, including vehicles.

The website ties together several agencies: the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, Transportation, the Environmental Protection Agency, NASA, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Postal Service, and the Executive Office of the President.

The HFCIWG is mainly an informational exchange forum and a place for these agencies to come together all at once or in smaller groups to promote other hydrogen-related items such as events, scholarships, research grants, etc.

And so ...

It's a step in the right direction, though the federal government has not been very supportive of hydrogen.
