GenerationFC 2006: Shaping the Southern Hydrogen Economy

Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Conference to Focus on Opportunities And Resources in the Southern U.S.

ATLANTA, GA - November 27, 2006-- Together with representatives from each of the states that make up the southern U.S., the Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE), Southern Fuel Cell Coalition (SFCC), and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) today announced a regional conference to be held in Atlanta on December 4th through 6th at the Emory Conference Center Hotel. The conference, entitled "GenerationFC 2006," will focus on:

o Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies and infrastructure
o The resources and opportunities for establishing a hydrogen and fuel cell industrial base in the southern region
o The many ways that this regional momentum can be further developed

To open the conference, CTE will present Congressman John Lewis (District 5-Atlanta) with an award recognizing the Congressman's many and various contributions to transportation policies and projects. The conference will also feature a keynote address by the President and CEO of General Hydrogen Corporation, Mr. Frank Trotter, who will be speaking about his organization's experience in commercializing fuel cell technology, with a particular emphasis on the outlook for the southern region of the U.S.

From its very beginnings as "Terminus," Atlanta, Georgia has been and continues to be the central transportation hub of the South. The advanced technology and energy leaders who gather for GenerationFC 2006 will chart new paths toward energy efficiency and sustainability for the region. As a result of their work in developing and commercializing new fuel cell technologies and hydrogen infrastructure, they will position the southern region to its best advantage in a new marketplace that is expected to reach $15 billion in value within the next ten years.
