The Year of the Fuel Cell: Looking Back to Get Ahead

By Fuel Cell Technologies Office Director Sunita Satyapal

As EERE hits the ground running in 2016, let’s take a minute to celebrate our hard work in 2015 that advanced hydrogen and fuel cells to where they are today. From research and development, to real-world deployment, 2015 was a landmark year for the hydrogen and fuel cell industry.

Without a doubt, the most notable development was the launch of commercially available fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). Hyundai is leasing its Tucson FCEV, and Toyota is selling and delivering its Mirai FCEV, right on track with original plans for research and development resulting in commercial decisions by the 2015 timeframe.
