Scientists and engineers across the country will celebrate Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day on October 8, aptly chosen for the atomic weight of hydrogen (1.008). Hydrogen 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. Join us in celebrating the week of Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day with activities and announcements across the country.
