The U.S. Fuel Cell Council (USFCC), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), recently held an event designed to showcase fuel cell products to America’s national labs.

The U.S. Fuel Cell Council (USFCC), in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), recently held a two-day event designed to showcase fuel cell products to America’s national labs. The event, part of the ongoing USFCC/DOE Fuel Cell Early Markets Activity, matched approximately 15 fuel cell manufacturers from across the country with national lab facility managers.

The facility managers were briefed on fuel cell products, their capabilities and recent field experience. Commercially available fuel cell products and emerging technologies for micro, portable, stationary, material handling, and transportation applications were discussed.

“Early adopters of fuel cell technologies have lowered their energy costs, reduced emissions and benefited from fuel cell reliability,” said Robert Rose, executive director of the USFCC. “Fuel cells are cost-effective on a life-cycle basis in some markets when compared to incumbent technologies. Taking into account the critical role that our national laboratories play, we feel that fuel cells can help these institutions meet their critical power needs.”

The two-day meeting at Argonne National Laboratory laid the groundwork for a program described in sections 782 and 783 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. These sections authorize the DOE to help federal and state agencies become early adopters of fuel cell technologies and supporting infrastructure.
