Fuel cell demos work but itís a long road to your driveway

Abstract:
Try to get Bob Sinuc to pontificate on the future of fuel cell technology and you wonít get far. Instead, the vice president of engineering for fuel cell developer Plug Power will politely remind you that, ďweíre a reality-based company.Ē

So itís no surprise to see Plug Power announce the operation of its second-generation experimental home energy station without much accompanying hype. No flowing descriptions of how the device will enable the hydrogen economy. No explanations of how this technology will cure all evil by liberating the world from oil. Itís as if theyíre merely saying, ďHere it is. Any questions?Ē
