PNNL's Singhal Elected To National Academy Of Engineering

February 22, 2005

Subhash C. Singhal, Battelle Fellow and director of fuel cells research at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), was one of 74 members recently elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Singhal was cited by the NAE "for the development and promotion of solid oxide fuel cells for clean and efficient power generation." He is noted for developing high-temperature solid oxide fuel cells, having brought this technology from experimental units that generated only a few watts to fully integrated, 200 kilowatt power-generation systems. "Subhash is recognized internationally as a leader in solid oxide fuel cell technology," said PNNL Director Len Peters. "This is a wonderful recognition by his peers and members of our nation's most prestigious scientific and engineering body. Not only are we thrilled for Subhash, but we also take this as a reflection of the world-class, high-impact science we do at PNNL."
