The sixth annual National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day will be celebrated on October 8, 2020. The observance was launched in 2015 by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) to help raise awareness of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies and to celebrate how far the industry has come. October 8th (10.08) was selected to reflect the atomic weight of hydrogen (1.008).

The day provides FCHEA and its members a platform for establishing a nationwide campaign to raise broader awareness of fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies. For the sixth consecutive year, the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives each passed a resolution affirming the national designation in recognition of the increasing contribution of hydrogen and fuel cells to energy reliability in the transportation, stationary Source: U.S. Department of EnergySource: U.S. Department of Energypower and industrial sectors.

Celebrate with a virtual tour of demonstration projects integral to the U.S. Department of Energy‘s H2@Scale initiative for affordable hydrogen production, storage, distribution and utilization across multiple applications in the U.S. The webinar will provide an overview of hydrogen infrastructure that supports stationary power, refueling of fuel cell vehicles and grid optimization controls at a utility in Florida, and a renewable hydrogen generation system co-located with a computing center using fuel cell power to run operations and install hydrogen refueling infrastructure for fuel cell vehicles in Texas.

Test fuel cell and hydrogen technology knowledge with a quick quiz, or tour hydrogen projects in Hawaii. Virtually, of course.
