The presentations covered a variety of topics including transportation, material handling, stationary power, hydrogen infrastructure, and the role of government in advancing these transformational technologies. Speakers also urged attendees to support the industry's priorities in regards to the reinstatement of the federal Investment Tax Credit, and a level playing for fuel cell technologies.
