About Us

The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) represents the leading companies and organizations that are advancing innovative, clean, safe, and reliable energy technologies.

FCHEA drives support and provides a consistent industry voice to regulators and policymakers.  Our educational efforts promote the environmental and economic benefits of fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies.

FCHEA is focused on achieving our mission through three primary activities:

  • Leading national advocacy to encourage all levels of government to support fuel cell and hydrogen technology research, development, and deployment;

  • Providing the industry a voice in shaping regulations, codes, and standards to enable commercial growth, while ensuring the highest levels of consumer safety and satisfaction; and

  • Educating the public and key opinion and policy leaders on the economic and environmental benefits of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.

To achieve these goals, FCHEA operates a number of working groups and committees, collaborating with our members on specific initiatives and technologies to help the industry thrive.

FCHEA was formed in November 2010 following the merger of two former associations representing different sectors of the industry, the U.S. Fuel Cell Council and the National Hydrogen Association.  Since our formation in 2010, FCHEA has grown into a stable, financially secure association that brings real value to its members.
