Oct. 8, 2019

This week the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will join others across the United States to celebrate the fifth National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day on October 8—10/08—a date chosen to represent the atomic weight of hydrogen (1.008).

The U.S. Senate officially designated Oct. 8, 2019, as National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day with the passage of Senate Resolution 346, and Colorado’s governor issued a proclamation to proclaim the date as Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day in Colorado. This is the fifth year in a row the Senate has passed such a resolution and the third year the State of Colorado has officially recognized the day.

In a letter to stakeholders, the U.S. Department of Energy Fuel Cell Technologies Office describes the growth and accomplishments in hydrogen and fuel cells and offers some suggested activities to celebrate Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day.

NREL will be sharing updates on social media throughout the week using #FuelCellsNow and #HydrogenNow.

To kick off the celebration, NREL researchers share some fun facts about hydrogen and fuel cells in this short video.
