    As an early-days fuel cell person I fondly remember the @arno_a Arno A. Evers Fair at the Hannover Messe.

    Many topics currently being talked about were discussed and debated in the 1990’s already (and without Arno would likely be forgotten to ‘long-ago’ history).

    There was a character named Roger Billings back in the 1960’s who lived in Colorado and made a “hydrogen home” car and other things powered by hydrogen and was written up in magazine Popular Mechanics. There was also a classic issue in, I believe, a 1973 Scientific American on the whole concept of the Hydrogen Economy.

    Yes, there was a similar activity in New Jersey, too. I am actually reflecting
    to commercial activities from companies like Ballard, BMW, Chevron Texaco, Daimler, General Motors, Linde, and Plug Power in the 1990s, and 2000s.
