We all know how committed Daimler is when it comes to fuel cell technology and other green endeavors. For being a pioneer and leader in the fuel cell field, the company was awarded the Sir William Grove Award 2012 by the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE).
The award was given to the German automaker at the World Hydrogen Energy Conference, which was held in Toronto. This IAHE award is named after Sir William Robert Grove, a British inventor who invented the first fuel cell in 1842, when he combined hydrogen and oxygen in order to produce electrical energy.
IAHE recognized Daimler’s continued commitment and focus when it comes to developing fuel cell tech, which is deemed as a great alternative compared to the fuel consumed by combustion engines. The B-Class F-Cell was the harbinger for next-gen fuel cell vehicles and is proof of how far Daimler has come in pursuit of this green technology.
This marked the eighth time that the prestigious Sir William Grove Award was handed out.
