UK and US strengthen hydrogen research partnership

Brussels, 15 Oct 2004

The UK and the US are to fund a joint researcher exchange programme with the specific aim of exploring the potential of hydrogen technology.

The move comes under the umbrella of the US/UK Energy Dialogue, launched by Tony Blair and George Bush in 2002. Under the first phase of the scheme, five researchers from the UK will receive bursaries and travel expenses enabling them to carry out hydrogen research and share expertise with specialists at the Sandia National Laboratory in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

'Hydrogen technologies not only offer very real reductions of CO2 emissions but also offer an important alternative source of fuel and energy. Therefore it is vital that we fully investigate their potential,' said UK Energy Minister Mike O'Brien.

'The sharing of expertise and research is fundamental to delivering a hydrogen economy and finding long term solutions for our environmental and energy concerns. These scholarships [...] will prove of great benefit not only to both countries but to the wider global arena.'
