The Senate adopted a resolution sponsored by Sen. Bob Mensch (R-24) last week recognising today as “National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day” in Pennsylvania.
Scientists and engineers across the country will celebrate Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day on 8th October, a date chosen for the atomic weight of hydrogen (1.008).
Mensch noted the United States is a world leader in the development and deployment of fuel cell and hydrogen (H2) technologies. In Pennsylvania, H2 is emerging as an energy carrier and a pathway to good environmental stewardship.
As an example, Mensch cited PDC Machines, located in Warminster Township, Bucks County. PDC Machines is continuously working to develop new technologies related to H2 fuel cells and encouraging growth within this sector.
“H2 and fuel cells can be used in multiple sectors for transportation, stationary power, and industrial applications, enabling energy security, resiliency, and a strong domestic economy in emerging technologies,” Mensch said. “It is important that private industries, federal and state governments, national laboratories, and institutions of higher education continue to improve fuel cell and hydrogen technologies to address the most pressing energy, environmental, and economic issues of the United States.”
To encourage and accelerate the deployment of clean hydrogen (H2) energy to promote sustainable growth, Air Products will sponsor the 3rd International Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Congress (FCVC) 2018 and the pre-congress Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Itinerant Exhibition & Roadshow (FCVI), which is the first ever in the Yangtze River ...
Anticipated to play a significant part in accelerating the industry-wide adoption of sustainable solutions for marine e-mobility, ABB and Ballard Power Systems recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on developing next-generation fuel cell systems.
