Making the Case for Hydrogen in the US: American Fuel Cell and Plug Power
How a New York State company is reinventing the hydrogen fuel cell for manufacturers and consumers
Hydrogen power is back. Countries like China, Germany, and India are increasingly relying on it as part of their growing sustainable energy programs. That’s not the case in the United States, where most clean-energy R&D focuses on lithium-ion battery systems powered by other renewables, like wind and solar. But there are signs that this story is changing as new US-based companies are finding success adapting hydrogen applications to niche markets.

The model that RIT built gives us the confidence to know that what we’re building is 100% safe. COE-SM people were a pleasure to work with and pragmatic in their approach. We now are more confident to transition the product to mass production.
