Congratulations to Siddharth Komini Babu (Los Alamos National Lab); winner of the 2021-2022 ECS Toyota Young Investigator Fellowships for Projects in Green Energy Technology.
The M2FCT team outlined the current and future prospects and challenges of hydrogen fuel cells for heavy-duty vehicles, including trucks, buses, trains, and marine applications, in a recent Nature Energy study
Million-Mile Fuel Cell Truck Consortium and their research on developing the state of hydrogen fuel-cell technology for heavy-duty vehicle applications have been covered in a Press Release by Berkeley, with contributions from Dave Cullen (ORNL) and Ahmet Kusoglu (LBNL), as well as Adam Weber (LBNL) and Rod Borup (LANL), the co-directors of the M2FCT consortium.
An Albuquerque Journal article on the role of hydrogen fuel cells for powering trucks, by Rod Borup, the co-director of the M2FCT Consortium and Los Alamos National Laboratory’s program manager for hydrogen and fuel cells. Read the article in the Albuquerque Journal
This Focus Issue in the Journal of The Electrochemical Society covered topics related to durability issues in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell & Water Electrolyzer.
You can explore the special issue and the publications by the M2FCT researchers on the membrane, catalyst, and electrode durability as well as their interrogation to understand and mitigate degradations issues to improve the durability of fuel cells.
Congratulations to Rajesh Ahluwalia and Xiaohua Wang of ANL for receiving the 2021 Annual Merit Review (AMR) Award for their work on cost analysis of fuel cell technologies.
The awards were announced at the 2021 AMR virtual event of the Department of Energy Hydrogen Program.
This award recognizes Brian James, Jennie Huya-Kouadio, and Cassidy Houchins of Strategic Analysis, Inc., and Rajesh Ahluwalia and Xiaohua Wang of Argonne National Laboratory for their cost analysis of fuel cell technologies. Their analysis of fuel cell electric vehicle cost, adjusted to account for durability, and their cost analysis of fuel cells for long-haul fuel cell trucks provide valuable information that helps to direct future R&D efforts.
