May (1996) marks the tenth anniversary of The
Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Letter. Formerly known as The Hydrogen Letter,
the newsletter premiered in 1986. The newsletter was launched as a moonlighting
operation by editor Peter Hoffmann, with encouragement and financial help
from what was then the Hydrogen Research Center at Texas A&M, the Hawaii
Natural Energy Institute at the University of Hawaii, the Clean Energy Research
Institute at the University of Miami, the organization formerly known as
Clean Fuel Institute in Riverside, California (all in the U.S.A.), and Canadas
Hydrogen Industry Council.
H&FCL is renowned for providing information
on current and worldwide hydrogen- and fuel cell-related events, reporting
on budgets, developments and partnerships, technological innovations, congressional
action, perceptions of industry and public interests groups, and other events
affecting the market for renewables. The cover stories and other headlines of the H&FCL can be viewed
on the NHA home page on the World Wide Web.
Before founding The Hydrogen Letter,
Peter Hoffman was a correspondent for a major business news service, McGraw-Hill
World News, working in Bonn, Milan, and Washington. Beginning in 1973, his
articles on hydrogen have appeared in Business Week, the Washington
Post, Chemical Week, Chemical Engineering, and others. He contributed
the hydrogen entry to the 1986 New Book of Knowledge, a Grolier encyclopedia
for young people. His 1981 book, The Forever FuelThe Story of Hydrogen,
was called the book on the subject by Kirkus Reviews.
