US DOE FCTO and ARPA – E Investments in Hydrogen Technology Advancements

Electrochemical technologies will play a vital role in developing sustainable processes and infrastructure for energy storage, transportation, and manufacturing. Hydrogen, produced by electrolysis, can serve as a vehicle fuel, is a chemical feedstock for ammonia generation and other industrial processes, and is required for conversion of carbon dioxide to higher value chemicals. In addition, hydrogen… Read More »

Fuel Cells for Microgrids

A community microgrid is a coordinated local grid area served by one or more distributed energy resources (DER), including energy storage, renewable and conventional generation, and demand response. Microgrids are able to island and stand alone in supplying power to a community, university campus, military base or critical facilities. Community microgrids increase reliability, reduce emissions,… Read More »
