August 12, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

DaimlerChrysler AG (Auburn Hills, MI) announced that US Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham toured the company's Kirchheim-Nabern fuel cell research facility in southern Germany to get a overview of actual developments in fuel cell research. President Bush has encouraged the Department of Energy to undertake the public-private technology partnerships in pursuit of a cleaner, more sustainable energy future that is ultimately independent of foreign sources of energy.

"I'm pleased to visit Nabern, which is in the forefront with its cutting-edge hydrogen fuel cell research technologies," stated Secretary Abraham. "I believe our work on hydrogen in the US, Germany and elsewhere is perhaps the most significant endeavor the energy sector will see in our lifetimes. Working together, we can leverage scarce resources and advance the schedule for research and deployment of hydrogen technology."
