June Caucus to Address DOE Hydrogen Fuel Cells Project

Washington, DC, May 24, 2004

The next ANSI Caucus Luncheon will be held on Friday, June 4, and will address the Department of Energy's Hydrogen Fuel Cells and Infrastructure program.

The guest speaker will be Mr. Neil Rossmeissl, head of the DOE Office of Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and Infrastructure Technology, Safety Codes and Standards in the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewables. The Hydrogen, Fuel Cells & Infrastructure Technologies Program is working with partners to accelerate the development and successful market introduction of these technologies. It is responsible for coordinating the hydrogen and fuel cell research and development activities of the Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy; Fossil Energy; Nuclear Energy, Science and Technology; and Science for DOE’s Hydrogen Program. The meeting will provide an opportunity for attendees to be briefed on the latest information relating to the many standards and conformity assessment issues involved in this new priority project.

"Mr. Rossmeissl is the foremost expert on standards in DOE's Hydrogen Fuels and Infrastructure project, and we are pleased to have him return to talk with us about this exciting program," said David Karmol, ANSI vice president for public policy and government affairs. Mr. Rossmeissl was a featured ANSI Caucus speaker in 2003.

ANSI Caucus luncheons are held on the first Friday of each month and are free to ANSI members. The event will begin at 11:30 am with general networking, and lunch will be served at 12:00 noon. The University Club is located at 1135 16th Street, between L and M streets.
