Ohio Governor Bob Taft has unveiled a new $100 million, three-year fuel cell initiative. It will focus on three areas:

1. Expand the state’s research capabilities by building on the work at universities such as Case Western Reserve University, Ohio University, and Ohio State University, as well as NASA Glenn, an Air Force research lab;

2. Participate in demonstration projects; and

3. Invest in expanding the fuel cell industry in Ohio, to attract companies and jobs.
