With the House and Senate both voting to reinstate funding for hydrogen fuel cell technology R&D, the Obama Administration has come under fire for initially proposing to cut the funding. During today's OnPoint, Robert Rose, executive director of the US Fuel Cell Council, discusses the hurdles facing hydrogen vehicle technology as a result of the Department of Energy's lack of support. He explains how the issue has become politicized and talks about his industry's plans for working with DOE. Rose also discusses the timeline for wide scale deployment of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
