Recommendation. The first milestone for hydrogen production from water dissociation should be an independent review to identify all of the engineering and economic hurdles that will have to be overcome. If the technology is judged to be capable of meeting Vision 21's performance and cost goals, then research and development should continue to the next stage. If performance and cost goals cannot be met, Vision 21 Program funding should be withdrawn.
