Business Journal (Central New York);4/4/2008, Vol. 22 Issue 14, p11
The author discusses several alternative-energy activities taking place in New York. He explains that these activities were designed by various companies as a response to the escalating gasoline prices and stories about global warming. He cites General Motors in Honeoye Falls because of its development facilities that work on proton-exchange membrane fuel cells. He also mentions Delphi/BMW because it works on solid oxide fuel cell. Clarkson University and Nano Dynamics Technology are also noted.
