The U.S. Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technologies Office held an H2@Scale Workshop at the 2019 Fuel Cell Seminar and Energy Exposition on November 5, 2019, in Long Beach, California.
The objectives were to:
- Provide an overview of activities and areas of interest under the H2@Scale initiative, including hydrogen and fuel cells for multiple applications.
- Present key accomplishments from H2@Scale research, development, and demonstration projects and analysis, and obtain feedback from broad stakeholders to guide future work.
- Identify, discuss, and prioritize research and development (R&D) priorities to advance hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in support of H2@Scale, including potential areas of international collaboration to accelerate progress.
