International Hydrogen Energy Association Reaches Key Emerging Markets

The Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH), an international coalition of national hydrogen associations, will now represent the emerging economies of China and Malaysia, adding to the gains the hydrogen industry has made globally throughout 2008.

The Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH), an international coalition of national hydrogen associations, will now represent the emerging economies of China and Malaysia, adding to the gains the hydrogen industry has made globally throughout 2008.


Officially joining PATH at the close of the Shanghai Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo on November 20th, the China Association for Hydrogen Energy (CAHE) and the University of Technology Malaysia bring PATH's membership to 16 countries.

Dr. Zong Qiang Mao, President of CAHE, believes that "China's rise in hydrogen RD&D has matured significantly in the last year. The China Association for Hydrogen Energy will now be able to participate constructively in the international partnership of hydrogen stakeholders that PATH represents."

Malaysia initiated an interim membership with PATH through the University Technology Malaysia, led by Dr. Hamdani Saidi, Director of the Chemical and Natural Resources Engineering School.

Jeffrey Serfass, President of PATH, said "our network in some of the world's largest emerging markets for zero-emissions energy technologies improves the work that we do: producing educational, research, and business resources that each member association can use to help their own member companies lead successful outreach and business development projects within their counties and across borders."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
