New Fuel Cell Industry Review launched
Fuel Cell Industry Review
Swiss and UK Consulting firm E4tech has just launched a very authoritative and timely Fuel Cell Industry Review, authored by international fuel cell industry experts Prof. David Hart, American Bob Rose, E4tech's Franz Lehner and consultant Jonathan Lewis.

The review includes key discussions on expected industry shipments by product line for 2014; the Japanese Roadmap, Europe's Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking and very detailed data on shipments by application, by fuel cell type, by region and an outlook for 2015.
