Proton Energy Systems Inc. (Wallingford, CT), a hydrogen generator and regenerative fuel cell company, announced its intention to provide hydrogen generation and fueling technologies as key infrastructure components for California's new "Hydrogen Highway" and renewable energy economy. The announcement was made at a California Fuel Cell Partnership event where Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed an executive order officially launching the state's Hydrogen Highway program.

"We applaud Governor Schwarzenegger's sustainable energy vision for California and his desire to join with leading energy providers to ensure this vision becomes a reality," said Walter Schroeder, president of Distributed Energy Systems Corp. "Our company's proprietary technology and products can produce pure hydrogen from water and electricity. These hydrogen generators are in use at major industrial and commercial facilities across the nation. We believe this technology paves the way for the critical Hydrogen Highway transportation applications of tomorrow."
