Plug Power and Honda Prep for Next Phase of Home Energy Station
March 23, 2006


Latham, New York [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The first of two
agreements announced by Plug Power with Honda R&D Company, Ltd. of
Japan covers the fourth consecutive phase of joint development of the
Home Energy Station, a fuel cell system that provides electricity and
heat to a home or business, while also providing hydrogen fuel for a
fuel cell vehicle. Under this new agreement, Honda R&D will continue to
fund Plug Power's work on the Home Energy Station.
 The third-generation Home Energy Station at Honda R&D America's
facility in Torrance, California, is 30 percent smaller in size than
its predecessor, with 25 percent more power output, greater hydrogen
storage capacity, higher efficiency and faster startup. The continued
phase-over-phase improvement trend is expected to continue with Phase
4.
"We are excited to announce the completion of these contracts and the
achievement of our public milestone related to our continuing
relationship with Honda," said Mark Sperry, Plug Power Chief Marketing
Officer. "We are honored to be working with Honda on such important
initiatives and look forward to the benefits of our ongoing and growing
collaboration."

The agreements represent a continuation of earlier collaborative
efforts between the two companies, after having completed the previous
phase in November 2005 with the commissioning of the third-generation
Home Energy Station at Honda R&D America's facility in Torrance,
California. It is 30 percent smaller in size than its predecessor, with
25 percent more power output, greater hydrogen storage capacity, higher
efficiency and faster startup. The continued phase-over-phase
improvement trend is expected to continue with Phase 4.

The second new agreement is focused on fundamental R&D work that Plug
Power is conducting under funding from Honda. This agreement is focused
on the advancement of technology for future Home Energy Stations, as
well as more generalized applications, which are expected to benefit
other Plug Power products. The system is expected to be more
environmentally friendly than traditional energy devices due to its
higher efficiency and lower emissions.
