FCHEA Launches Campaign to Transform the Energy Network

February 21, 2011

The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) has launched a campaign calling on Congress to continue funding fuel cell and hydrogen programs, which are critical to preserving U.S. leadership in the evolving clean energy network. The FCHEA launched a new website for the campaign through which it expects to engage an army of grassroots proponents of fuel cells and hydrogen energy, enabling their voices to be heard by lawmakers in an effort to continue funding for these critical programs.

The FCHEA is calling on the U.S. government to acknowledge in its rhetoric, policies and government purchases what energy experts and leaders across the globe have already acknowledged: all clean energy options, including fuel cells and hydrogen, are necessary to reach our economic growth, environmental and energy security goals.

Fuel cells and hydrogen energy have been proven to play a unique and vital role in enhancing the performance of renewable and nuclear power; boosting the efficiency and lowering the emissions of fossil fuels; and generating power closer to the point of consumption, relieving grid congestion and reducing the need for high-voltage transmission lines.

The organization is calling on industry to lend support to this cause. For additional details, visit www.fchea.org.
