Fuel cells, which work like batteries but don’t run down or need recharging, are ideal for powering material handling equipment, like forklifts and airport baggage carts, because they reduce recharging time and cut carbon pollution. Recent Energy Department reports indicate the fuel cell and hydrogen industry is continuing to grow.  | Photo courtesy of Plug Power, Inc.

Last month, the Energy Department released three new reports that signal incredible growth in America’s fuel cell and hydrogen industry.

Read these and other fuel cell and hydrogen reports in full.

The Energy Department, in collaboration with national laboratories and industry partners, is working to boost the fuel cell and hydrogen market even more. For example, the Energy Department recently announced $7 million for projects in Georgia, Kansas, Pennsylvania and Tennessee to help make hydrogen and fuel cell technologies more energy efficient and cost effective.
