We are excited to share with you a great write-up in Midwest Energy News, featuring the OFCC, several of our members, the 2015 Symposium, and how Ohio is contributing to the growing market and commercialization of fuel cells. Thank you to Midwest Energy reporter, Kathiann Kowalski, who attended this year's Symposium, and for the very informative article.

Fuel cell technology in Ohio is already moving from research and development into commercialization, according to industry experts at the 2015 Ohio Fuel Cell Symposium. Moreover, that growth is taking place despite recent setbacks in state policy.

Sponsored by the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition (OFCC), the June 15-16 conference at Lorain County Community College in Elyria stressed achievements and highlighted future directions for fuel cells in mobile, portable and fixed distributed generation applications.

Basically, fuel cells use electrons from hydrogen fuel to create an electric current. In the process, hydrogen ions combine with oxygen to produce water as a byproduct. Hydrogen for the process can come from different sources. The most commonly used method involves using natural gas. That process produces some carbon dioxide, but at levels lower than from the direct burning of fossil fuels. Other methods could produce even fewer emissions.

Hydrogen fuel cells are widely considered to be a clean energy option, not only for powering vehicles and machines but also for distributed generation of electricity.

As Kirt Conrad of Ohio’s Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) sees it, hydrogen fuel cell technology “is no longer a science fair project.  Read more here













FedEx Fuel CellCargo Tractors

 From the U.S. Dept. of Energy Office of  Energy  Efficiency and Renewable Energy's  Facebook Page: 

Hydrogen fuel cell cars are beginning to hit American roadways. Did you know fuel cells are also being used at the airport? Our office is providing funding support for the development of 15 zero emission hydrogen
fuel cell-powered cargo tractors that FedEx is using to load packages at their world hub at Memphis International Airport in Tennessee. Our Deputy Assistant Secretary for Sustainable Transportation, Reuben Sarkar, and Fuel Cell Technologies Director, Sunita Satyapal, attended the ribbon cutting ceremony last Thursday and had the opportunity to drive one of the fuel cell powered cargo trucks.
