First Hydrogen Expo to Be Held in Washington, DC

February 16, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

The first Hydrogen Expo will be held in Washington, DC, on March 4-6, 2003, in the Capital Hilton. Partnering with the National Hydrogen Association's (NHA) 14th Annual Meeting, the Hydrogen Expo will showcase the technologies that will reverse America's dependence on oil imports from politically instable regions. Production methods of the clean energy carrier hydrogen (H2), safety measures, initiatives to build a fueling infrastructure, and everyday applications such as hydrogen-powered vehicles will be featured in the exhibition.

"After President Bush's announcement of the FreedomFUEL program, the Hydrogen Expo comes to the right place at the right time," stated Ines Freesen, managing director of exhibition organizer Freesen & Partner. "It perfectly fits with this year's motto of the NHA conference 'Energy Security Through Hydrogen', and introduces solutions for sustainable; emission-free; and oil-independent power, heat and mobility."

The exhibition is open to the public on March 5, 2003, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., and 1:15 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on March 6, 2003, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Admission is free.
