NHA HomeNHA News Index

The National Hydrogen Associations 15th Annual U.S. Hydrogen Conference and Hydrogen Expo USA, Hydrogen: A Clean Energy Choice, will be held at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel in Los Angeles, California, April 27-30, 2004. The NHA is now accepting abstracts from prospective speakers.

The Los Angeles venue provides central and convenient access for Asian and other international communities. It is the perfect setting for the hydrogen community to continue the momentum of the past year by focusing on global unity and regional diversity in the hydrogen sector.

We are fast approaching the first anniversary of the Presidential Initiative on hydrogen and though we are at the beginning stages of a multi-decade transition, now is the time to share technology-specific information and analyze the critical issues in the development of hydrogen and hydrogen technologies.
