Joerg Weigl, one of our protege`s, won prices with his 
UTM Fuel Cell Vehicle

The Shell Eco-marathon is an annual event which challenges 
university student teams from around the world to design, build and test
energy efficient vehicles. The rules are quite easy to handle: The winner
is the team that goes the furthest distance while driving around a fixed
circuit using the least amount of energy. The Shell Eco-marathon Asia
was scheduled for 8-10 July 2010 at the Sepang International Circuit in
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with 81 teams from 10 countries in the region
(China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore,
Thailand and Malaysia) taking part in it.

Obama`s first Oval Office speech

News from the White House: Obama `s first Oval Office speech on June 15, 2010:  
Much Ado about Nothing 

In his 1590 comedy “Much Ado about Nothing”, the British author William
Shakespeare tells us about two pairs of lovers, who could not be more

teleprompter carefully, only moving hands and mouth. 

Please allow me, as a German outsider, a little analysis of the Remarks by the President, as
they are officially called by the White House. ..

Why implementing a Hydrogen Society?

As the founder of the Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells (H2/FC) at the annual HANNOVER FAIR in Germany, I find it necessary to distribute neutral background information about the hydrogen and feul cells technology and its value for the society.  Also some background information on energy questions have to be analized. To achieve this goal, my new book “The Hydrogen Society … more than just a Vision?” (ISBN 978-3-937863-31-3) is now on the market. Further information:
