The Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) will host a Fuel Cell Car Ride-and-Learn during the Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program Annual Merit Review and Peer Evaluation Meeting (AMR) on Thursday, June 14, during lunch hours. For the first time ever, AMR attendees will have the opportunity to get up close to the innovative technology inside the world’s first commercial fuel cell cars and learn more about the early stage research and development (R&D) making it possible. Efforts from FCTO-funded early stage R&D have helped cut the cost of fuel cells by 60% and quadrupled their durability in the past decade. The cars used for this event are part of the Energy Department’s fleet and on loan from the automakers as an effort to collect data that feeds back to FCTO’s early stage fuel cell and hydrogen fuel R&D.
