The European Union and the United States agreed this week to coordinate research on developing hydrogen technologies, despite differences on just how to do it. The partners pledged no new money, but proponents say the collaboration will speed efforts to evaluate and develop fuel cells that convert hydrogen gas to electricity with no pollution. Europe generally supports producing hydrogen using renewable energy sources, whereas the U.S. is also emphasizing use of nuclear power and fossil fuels.
