About this Event
The first-ever National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day took place in the United State on October 8th 2015. It was created by the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association in 2015 to raise awareness of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies as well as the vast potential the technologies have today and in future. The specific date was chosen, as in the United States 8th of October is written as October 8th or more commonly as 10/08, and 1.008 is the atomic weight of Hydrogen.
Innovate Australia brought the event to Australia to prove National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day can become International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day. US Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association confirms this was the very first 10/08 Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day celebrated outside the United States, so the event in Australia marks the first-ever International Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Day.
