PATHways – New Report Assessing Progress in the Global Hydrogen Industry

Many countries around the world are working to build a clean and secure energy future. Stakeholders of a global hydrogen economy need to understand the developments related to hydrogen energy and current events that are shaping the process. The Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH) has begun to facilitate such an understanding by producing "PATHways: Assessing Progress in the Global Hydrogen Industry."

The report incorporates the perspectives of leaders in the worldwide hydrogen and fuel cell industry, as well as views from leaders in government, education, and related business sectors. By establishing a broad base of knowledge, this report will accomplish two main objectives:

(1) help existing and emerging leaders expand the commercialization of hydrogen locally and globally; and
(2) educate outside leaders and the public about present and future opportunities for hydrogen energy. The full report is scheduled for release in 2010.

Proceeding country by country, and region by region, PATH will explore how organizations and governments around the world are supporting the transition to a hydrogen economy, how individuals understand the benefits and risks of hydrogen technology, what practices lead to success, what challenges need to be overcome, and how organizations plan to move forward. The final report will include a set of recommendations for stakeholders.


In conjunction with the production of the report, PATH records - with permission - the interviews of leader from the industry, government or associations of individual countries. Subscribe to the podcasts and stay up-to-date on new developments in the hydrogen industry.

Webinar on Hydrogen Initiatives in Canada:

This webinar featured two leaders of the most ambitious and successful hydrogen projects in Canada: The Hydrogen Village in Toronto and BC's Hydrogen Highway. Watch to learn the critical roles of the public and private sectors in this emerging market model and why both projects have remained financially and politically successful through 2008.
