U.S. Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham and Goji Sakamoto, senior vice minister of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, signed a joint statement of intent to pursue pre-competitive research and development in the field of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. The two countries intend to bring together officials and technical experts to participate in workshops and seminars, as well as share information on current policies and technologies. On Nov. 20, 2003, the United States joined Japan and 14 other countries in formally founding the International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy (IPHE). The partnership supports the deployment of hydrogen energy technologies, as well as the establishment of collaborative efforts in hydrogen production, storage, transport, and end-use technologies. Other goals include developing common codes and standards for hydrogen fuel utilization.
