The Sacramento Auto Show was largely underwhelming this year. Electrical difficulties prompted the shut down of two display building at Cal Expo. And manufacturers’ presentations were uninspired – like the reps were going through the motions of presenting new vehicles for the umpteenth time — which they were.
There were a few exceptions, including the display and energy of the presentation at the California Fuel Cell Partnership booth.
The California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP) is a collaboration of 34 organizations that believe fuel cell vehicles powered by hydrogen have the potential to change the future of transportation.
The CaFCP web site, www.cafcp.orfg, provides information about the progress that CaFCP’s automotive, energy, fuel cell technology, government and associate members are making to bring this important transportation choice to market.
The CaFCP also has free public tours on the 4th Friday of every month. Visitors can learn about fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen fuel and ride in a fuel cell vehicle. Reservations are required.
It’s taken about six weeks for me write about the program. But it’s a cutting edge organization worthy of a good look.
The CaFCP is located at 3300 Industrial Blvd., Suite 1000, West Sacramento, CA 95691, Tel. 916-371-2870, Web site: www.cafcp.org.
