Energy Department Partners with Japanese Counterpart to Accelerate Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies

Justin Lewis

In honor of Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Fuel Cell Technologies Office and Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) announced today a collaboration on hydrogen and fuel cell safety research and development (R&D) data sharing to accelerate progress in hydrogen technology with mutual goals of energy security, resilience, and economic growth.

DOE and NEDO will collaborate to collect and share data regarding early-stage R&D and safety of hydrogen and fuel cells, including data from hydrogen fueling stations and fundamental hydrogen research safety. The United States and Japan will work to apply that data for guiding future research and enabling the safe deployment of fuel cells and hydrogen infrastructure technologies. In addition, DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Office and NEDO plan to hold a joint workshop on hydrogen in the coming months.
