Ballard 1020AC postscript

Just a note - after my 9/27/07 entry, battery producer Exide signed a long-term agreement with Ballard to employ the wonderful 1020AC, the stack optimized for critical backup, in a 3-way hybrid power system for forklifts. Although using the 1020 for a forklift exhibits some real confidence in the stack , Exide is also committed to using lead-acid batteries along with the fuel cell and ultracaps, not my (or anyone's) favorite battery technology.
