Monthly Webinars on State and Regional Applications of Fuel Cells: DOE, CESA, and the Technology Transition Corporation (TTC) co-host monthly webinars on various topics of interest to state leaders and others interested in implementing fuel cells at the state and local level. Those webinars that are organized by CESA are available on the CESA website. The other webinars are available on the DOE website at the DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Webinar Page. Sign up for our listserv to find out about all of the webinars.
DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Program Market Transformation Website: Through its market transformation efforts, the Fuel Cell Technologies Program seeks to accelerate the commercialization and promote the early adoption of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.
Program activities focus on:
- Demonstrating and deploying hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in early market applications for which there is a business case
- Providing lessons learned on real-world implementation
- Eliminating non-technical barriers to widespread deployment
- Increasing opportunities for market expansion.
Fuel Cells 2000: Fuel Cells 2000 is an activity of the Breakthrough Technologies Institute (BTI), a non-profit [501(c)(3)] independent, educational organization that identifies and promotes environmental and energy technologies that can improve the human condition.
Fuel Cells 2000's mission is to promote the commercialization of fuel cells and hydrogen by supplying accurate, unbiased information, developing and disseminating summary materials accessible to a general audience, and providing a portal for researchers, developers, suppliers, government officials, opinion leaders and others interested in the sector. Our materials and information are available free of charge, with minor exceptions.
Fuel Cells 2000 publishes a number of useful resources about hydrogen & fuel cells, including "When the Grid Fails: Fuel Cells Provide Backup Power During Disasters," "State of the States: Fuel Cells in America" and "The Business Case for Fuel Cells: Why Top Companies are Purchasing Fuel Cells Today" and "The Business Case for Fuel Cells 2011: Energizing America's Top Companies."
NCSL Fuel Cells Page: The National Conference of State Legislatures has posted a webpage on Fuel Cells Clean and Reliable Energy. It includes a summary of state and federal incentives for fuel cell implementation. Although it was written primarily with the needs of state legislators in mind, you might find it to be a handy summary. It was produced as part of CESA grant from the US Department of Energy for educating state policymakers about fuel cells.
Hydrogen Safety Snapshot Newsletter: The H2 Safety Snapshot is a hydrogen safety quarterly newsletter published by the Fuel Cell Technologies Program. This quarter's issue features safe handling of compressed hydrogen gas cylinders and includes information about transporting, receiving, and staging cylinders; connecting to piping or tubing; and cylinder storage. The H2 Safety Snapshot highlights safety as an integral element when working with hydrogen and hydrogen systems. The bulletin promotes the continued safe operation of DOE hydrogen projects by featuring the latest information on hydrogen safety best practices. The topic for next quarter will be "Identification of Safety Vulnerabilities."
Northeast Electrochemical Energy Storage Cluster (NEESC): NEESC is a regional (New England and New York) network of industry, academic, government, and non-governmental leaders working to provide energy storage solutions through the innovative development, production, promotion, and deployment of hydrogen fuels and fuel cells. The Cluster project is funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration and administered by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technologies. CESA is a regional partner working to enhance and support the fuel cell supply chain in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. More information on the Cluster project is available on its website, www.neesc.org.
