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.
