Gov. Bob Taft of Ohio says tapping renewable energy sources can improve a state's economy as well as strengthen national security. Of course, he was preaching to the choir during a talk before the Ohio Renewable Energy Summit. Taft, who is the outgoing governor, also called for a reduction in regulations to help spur investment. Organizers of the conference are working towards a goal of renewable energy providing 25 percent of the nation's total energy consumption by 2025. Ohio is one of twelve states aligned with the 25x'25 effort, and leaders there believe the state can be in forefront of fuel cell production.
