|Today is National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day in the United States, a day to reflect on the benefits of fuel cell and hydrogen energy technology.
October 8th was chosen because of the atomic weight of Hydrogen, 1.008.
The day is important for the forklift sector because battery-powered equipment is commonplace – and because so many users are interested in alternative power sources.
There is more information on today’s significance here and we salute the solid research and development currently under way, not just in the US, but globally.
