The article reports the expected growth of renewable hydrogen industry in Minnesota, United States. Minnesota has the opportunity to advance a homegrown industry based on the production of renewable products and hydrogen. The success of its renewable energy industry widens its chance to develop hydrogen from renewable feedstock. Solar energy, wind power and biomass are some of the native and renewable resources that currently offer the best potential for Minnesota. Moreover, the 2005 Minnesota legislature requested that the Minnesota Department of Commerce provides a slate of proposed pilot projects which contributes to the realization of Minnesota's hydrogen economy goal. INSET: FILLING UP AT A PENNSYLVANIA HYDROGEN STATION.
