::: Bruce Meland Reports...
Thursday April 2nd, 2005 ::: Hi Remy. I made it to Monaco. The weather is great but need to get used to the different keyboard - will take photos of rallys. We will be having some breaking stories each day and photos as Ulrich has a big Sony digital camera with download capabilities. Fetish looks good, at least 2 Fetish cars. 2 rallys and a parade of clean vehicles launched EVS-21 today. Rallye Monte Carlo from Switzerland to Monte Carlo, a regional rally, and a parade of all clean vehicles around the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco where over 900 delegates will gather for the next 3 1/2 days do discuss new developments in electric, hybrid, fuel cell vehicles, new battery technology and discussions of whether hydrogen will be a viable alternate fuel given the energy required to produce hydrogen may be more that the energy it supplies. Stay tuned, keep checking back and logon to the ET List for EVS-21 related stories & articles.
