What a treat to participate in the most recent meeting of the California Hydrogen Business Council. The who's who of the Hydrogen world were all there. Technology updates from Proton Energy Systems, Mr Stuart of Stuart Energy, Hydrogen Burner Technologies, Impco, and of course ENER. Clearly the highlight for all in attendance was the presentation given by Stan Ovshinsky and his loving wife and partner Iris. Stan made a compelling pitch for the completeness of the ENER energy solutions. He showed samples of various solar cell materials and discussed honestly the challenges of expanding the manufacturing capabilities of these new materials. He mentioned that their Hydrogen storage technology had a lifetime of over 600,000 vehicle miles and that they have solved the fill time issue. When questioned about commercial introduction he cautiously offered that announcements are at least a year away and that Texaco was aiming at 2002. Stan was also quite optimistic about the growth of the Hybrid vehicle market and that the Hybrids utilize Ovonic licensed battery materials. Stan practices what he preaches by driving a Toyota Prius. The achievements of Stan and his ENER team are truly phenomenal. Stan and his wife Iris are living legends and a source of inspiration to all.
