It is the world's first
public hydrogen station; it was opened on 24th of April 2003 and there was no
other public station that came on line until last year, no, sorry, in 2005, and
that was the station actually in Washington, DC. There are now two stations
also in Berlin, which are public and they're building the first one in
Japan and there will be some stations in LA, which will be public.
But this is like—we were the
first, now people realize we can do it. So that's the kind of learning -
you go to a small society like Iceland where a lot of things are simpler than
in a big society like the US or Europe. You can actually test the things out
here; if they wouldn't have worked here, it's very unlikely that
they would have been able to build a shell station in Washington, DC. But
that's actually how we think we can help the world and our small case
travels around the world.
