CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- An in-depth look at how Iowa's renewable energy resources, such as wind power and biomass, can help harness hydrogen-- an inexhaustible, pollution-free resource-- will be presented at 7 p.m., Monday, March 7, in the auditorium of the Center for Energy & Environmental Education at the University of Northern Iowa.

Bill Leighty, director of the Leighty Foundation in Juneau, Alaska, and co-principal of the International Renewable Hydrogen Transmission Demonstration Facility, will discuss the potential of hydrogen extracted from water becoming a major energy provider in the future. His talk is titled 'What Hydrogen Economy? Running Our Cars on Water in a Carbon-constrained World.' It is the fourth program in the CEEE's 10th anniversary series, and is open to the public, free of charge. A reception, sponsored by the Leighty Foundation, will follow the program.
