Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Interagency Working Group

The Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Interagency Working Group is composed of federal agencies that collaborate and share information about hydrogen and fuel cells. Participating agencies exchange information on research, development, and demonstration projects. They also collaborate on activities to foster safe, cost-effective, and environmentally beneficial hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The site also serves as a portal to participating agency activities. Find details on agency activities related to hydrogen and fuel cells by visiting participating agency Web sites.

In the future, the site will include resources such as data and training tools that result from federal hydrogen and fuel cell activities.

Department of Energy
The Department of Energy’s overarching mission is to advance the national, economic, and energy security of the United States; to promote scientific and technological innovation in support of that mission; and to ensure the environmental cleanup of the national nuclear weapons complex.

DOE Hydrogen Program
The Hydrogen Program Web site offers a portal to information about the Department of Energy’s research and development in hydrogen production, delivery, storage, and fuel cells, as well as activities in technology validation, systems analysis and integration, safety codes and standards, and education.

Fuel Cells 2000
Fuel Cells 2000’s mission is to promote the commercialization of fuel cells and hydrogen by supplying accurate, unbiased information, developing and disseminating summary materials accessible to a general audience, and providing a portal for researchers, developers, suppliers, government officials, opinion leaders and others interested in the sector. Our materials and information are available free of charge, with minor exceptions.

Fuel Cells Today
Fuel Cell Today is the leading organisation for market based intelligence on the fuel cell industry. Covering key trends and developments in industry and government, Fuel Cell Today has provided relevant, unbiased and objective information allowing decision makers to take advantage of the opportunities that our new industry offers.

H2FC News Page
“The Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Investor’s Newsletter” is updated and published weekly. Available only through a secure online subscription at, the Newsletter provides detailed backgrounds and viewpoints on developing fuel cell technologies as well as the financing and research activities of the many companies involved. The Newsletter is more than just a listing of company developments; it includes in-depth analyses of the technical issues that confront the companies and the industry.

Whole Foods Hydrogen Story

Whole Foods is using fuel cell technology in its warehouse operations. Read about their program, which has quite a few aspects that are similar to the DLA program.

Worldwide Hydrogen Fuel Technology

This site contains a database of worldwide hydrogen fuel stations in addition to a comprehensive data collection on hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles.

PATH: The Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen, Event Calendar

The Partnership for Advancing the Transition to Hydrogen (PATH) is a not-for-profit international coalition of hydrogen associations that seeks international cooperation to help advance the transition to hydrogen as a carbon-free energy carrier and a solution to environmental and energy issues.

Society of Manufacturing Engineers Event Calendar

Through its many programs and activities, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) connects manufacturing practitioners to each other, to the latest technology and the most up-to-date processes spanning all manufacturing industries and disciplines, plus the key areas of aerospace and defense, medical device, motor vehicles, including motorsports, oil and gas, and alternative energy.

Fuel Cell Insider

The Fuel Cell Insider is a forum for discussion, debate and information exchange about fuel cells and their fuels. It’s called the Insider because we are committed to giving you access to the comments and work of professionals in the field – professional scientists and engineers, certainly, but also policy professionals, journalists and advocates. The Fuel Cell Insider is a window into the fuel cell world. But as with all blogs, if you don’t like the window…break it! If you don’t like the view, change the focus. There is already a surplus of unchallenged assertions in the world of fuel cells. Perhaps with honest exchange, we can generate some light with all that heat.

The Insider blog is managed by Fuel Cells 2000, a non-profit education and outreach program that promotes fuel cells and their fuels internationally via information, reports, user-friendly databases and forums of exchange for researchers, developers, suppliers, students, teachers, government officials, opinion leaders and others interested in the sector. We are an activity of the Breakthrough Technologies Institute.

DOD Fuel Cells

As part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers team, the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) develops innovative science and technology solutions to support warfighting, infrastructure, environmental, water resources, and disaster operations. The ERDC is an integrated research and development organization that consists of seven laboratories, which include the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL).

California Fuel Cell Partnership

The California Fuel Cell Partnership is a collaboration of organizations, including auto manufacturers, energy providers, government agencies and fuel cell technology companies, that work together to promote the commercialization of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. By working together, we help ensure that vehicles, stations, regulations and people are in step with each other as the technology comes to market.

Alternative Energy Hydrogen Fuel Cell News

This website provides news in several areas: energy, biofuels, environment, solar, transportation, and wind. Users can subscribe for regular updates in their areas of interest.

California Hydrogen Highway

The California Hydrogen Highway Network (CaH2Net) was initiated in April of 2004 by Executive Order S-07-04. The mission of the CaH2Net is to support and catalyze a rapid transition to a clean, hydrogen transportation economy in California. Use this website to find information about hydrogen infrastructure, organizations, and federal and state vehicles for support.
