Hydrogen Energy

A fuel cell on a SERC test bench with plumbing and control computer.

SERC has worked with fuel cells and hydrogen energy since the lab was founded in 1989. Our research and development on hydrogen and fuel cells has included numerous funded projects with a variety of partners and has led to two patents and several technology licensing agreements. We have tested fuel cell materials individually and in combinations, and we have built fuel cell test stations for our own lab and for other universities. We have also worked to demonstrate hydrogen energy technology in the real world, designing and building fuel cell test stations and converting vehicles to run on fuel cell power.
