The U.S. Fuel Cell Council (USFCC) and the National Hydrogen Association (NHA) will link up to form the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA). The newly formed FCHEA will focus in on accelerating the commercial application of fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies across multiple industries, including the automotive market. By merging two of the nation's leading hydrogen and fuel cell advocacy groups, a single, integrated message can be delivered to industry leaders and stakehold

Automakers from Mercedes to Honda are eager to show off their hydrogen cars and plans for these vehicles in the future. We see it all the time here on AutoblogGreen (BTW, have you noticed our new "landing pages" for the various categories on the site? Try some: Hydrogen, Legislation and Policy and the Automotive X-Prize). How far ahead does the National Hydrogen Association need to look to find a time when hydrogen vehicles "dominate" the auto industry? Here's a hint: the NHA's latest report is

In conjunction with a visit from the traveling road show that is the National Hydrogen Road Tour, the first filling station for the energy carrier in Massachusetts has opened near Boston. Nuvera Fuel Cells has opened a hydrogen pump at its U.S. headquarters in Billerica, MA.

The Challenge group is currently looking for proposals to develop the Fuel Cell District so it enhances ongoing

OK, we'll let a non-hydrogen story slip by here at the end of the day. While the National Hydrogen Association is excited to have 32 hydrogen fueling stations open across the country, that's nothing compared to the 101 ethanol plants now in operation across the U.S. These plants can produce 4744.9 mmgy (million gallons per year), according to Renewable Fuels Association. The one-hundredth plant was opened in Iowa by Frontier Ethanol. The ethanol boom isn't stopping any time soon. The RFA lists 3
