Energy storage and clean fuel company, ITM Power has announced its participation in H2USA, the hydrogen infrastructure programme for the US.
The US Energy Department recently launched H2USA, a new public-private partnership focused on advancing hydrogen infrastructure to support more transportation energy options for US consumers, including fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs).
The new partnership brings together auto manufacturers, government agencies, gas suppliers, and the hydrogen and fuel cell industries to coordinate research and identify cost-effective solutions to deploy infrastructure that can deliver affordable, clean hydrogen fuel in the US.
Members of the H2USA partnership include the American Gas Association, Association of Global Automakers, the California Fuel Cell Partnership, the Electric Drive Transportation Association, the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association, Hyundai Motor America, ITM Power, Massachusetts Hydrogen Coalition, Mercedes-Benz USA, Nissan North America Research and Development, Proton OnSite, and Toyota Motor North America.
Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, David Danielson, said, “Fuel cell technologies are an important part of an all-of-the-above approach to diversify America’s transportation sector, reduce our dependence on foreign oil and increase our competitiveness in the global market. By bringing together key stakeholders from across the US fuel cell and hydrogen industry, the H2USA partnership will help advance affordable fuel cell electric vehicles that save consumers money and give drivers more options.”
ITM Power CEO Dr. Graham Cooley commented, “We have been working on developing our relationships in the US for some time now and we are very pleased to be founding members of H2USA. We are looking forward to building on our relationships and entering the US market with our HFuel product.”
ITM Power designs and manufactures hydrogen energy systems for energy storage and clean fuel production, and has grown from its original platform of novel polymeric electrolytes (for water electrolysis and hydrogen fuel cells) to that of a technology provider.
