Russian-U.S. Fuel Cell Conference
Sandia's Russian-U.S. Fuel cell conference in September '95 was a huge success. The Russians have an operating 100kW PEM powered vehicle. Gazprom is funding development of a small PEM unit to be placed along its gas pipelines for cathodic protection. A U.S. company is quietly negotiating for rights to the PEM technology (and it's not Ballard or GRI!). Another company is going after some of the Russian Solid Oxide work. Proceedings from the conference are available. (DU, Distributed Utilities)
