The H Prize

Legislation creating the "H-Prize," modeled after the privately funded
Ansari X Prize that resulted last year in the first privately developed
manned rocket to reach space twice, passed the House Wednesday on a
416-6 vote. A companion bill is to be introduced in the Senate this

The measure would award four prizes of up to $1 million every other
year for technological advances in hydrogen production, storage,
distribution and utilization. One prize of up to $4 million would be
awarded every second year for the creation of a working hydrogen
vehicle prototype.

The grand prize, to be awarded within the next 10 years, would go for breakthrough technology.
