“By providing clean, efficient and continuous base-load energy for buildings and enabling zero-emission transportation, fuel cells have become a proven and crucial component of the clean energy network. We are extremely grateful for the important work FCHEA is doing to raise the profile of these game-changing energy technologies for the marketplace, policy makers, key decision-makers and the general public.”
Vice President,Government Affairs, and General Counsel,
"FCHEA is an important conduit for informing and educating government leaders and the public about the impact hydrogen is making today as well as significant technology advances, and hydrogen’s role in solving the clean energy issue for all future generations."

“The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Industries in Ohio are on the verge of considerable success. One piece of the puzzle that will help push us over the top is a united voice for the fuel cell and hydrogen industries. The FCHEA provides Ohio, the rest of the country—and the Industry-- with that voice through advocacy, support and a united front.”
Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition
"FCHEA brings a strong, united voice about fuel cells and hydrogen to a national audience. We look forward to working closely with FCHEA staff and members to advance the commercialization of fuel cells in the United States."
California Fuel Cell Partnership
"FCHEA's efforts are providing great help in moving Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles to a new level of market acceptance in a way one individual automaker could not."
“Plug Power greatly appreciates the importance of FCHEA in advancing hydrogen fuel cell solutions in commercial applications. It is the visionary collaboration of the partnership that provides a strong foundation for today’s advanced technology to prove out value, viability and reliability in key markets. Industry pioneers, like FCHEA, will ensure a path to a future that includes hydrogen and fuel cells as core to the clean energy network”
"Solar and wind are good technologies, but they do not address the total customer need for continuous power as fuel cells and hydrogen energy do . Many customers require a more dependable base-load, energy efficient solution that works around the clock, and in a smaller footprint. ClearEdge Power fuel cells provide exactly that solution, and the FCHEA helps us to inform and educate customers and policymakers about the many benefits of fuel cells and hydrogen energy."
President & CEO
“Now, more than ever, the fuel cell and hydrogen energy industries need to speak in one powerful voice. FCHEA's efforts have been exceptional in creating a compelling platform to advance industry initiatives on Capitol Hill and within the States”

“To Advance and Promote the Markets for Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Energy”
The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) is the trade association for the fuel cell and hydrogen energy industry, and is dedicated to the commercialization of fuel cells and hydrogen energy technologies. Fuel cells and hydrogen energy technologies deliver clean, reliable power to leading edge corporate, academic and public sector users, and FCHEA members are helping to transform our energy future. FCHEA represents the full global supply chain, including universities, government laboratories and agencies, trade associations, fuel cell materials, components and systems manufacturers, hydrogen producers and fuel distributors, utilities and other end users.
The Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Advantage
Association members believe the clean energy future will be defined by access to affordable, sustainable energy. Clean, efficient fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies will be crucial in this new era because of their great versatility, scalability and reliability. FCHEA members are leading the effort to bring these technologies to market, promote economic growth and enhance energy security.
FCHEA’s Roles: Advocate, Educate, Engage, Support
FCHEA is the industry’s voice in governmental, intergovernmental (IGO), nongovernmental (NGO), business and public forums worldwide.
Advocate: FCHEA advocates for comprehensive public policies that ensure fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies are part of every possible clean energy scenario. We attend national and international meetings to represent the industry and educate key audiences. Our spokespersons explain the roles fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies already play in society as well as how they are enhancing and transforming global and national energy networks. For the financial and business communities, we help explain the reality and benefit of fuel cell and hydrogen energy commercialization.
Educate: Around the world, FCHEA members educate key audiences about the full range of benefits provided by FC&H2 technologies. In the U.S., for example, there are specific programs in place to share information with energy-focused officials.
Engage: Education, communications and outreach are the foundations for engaging key audiences and the public, and building new communities of support for fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies. We identify and assist champions at the federal level, as well as the provincial and state level, to help create new markets and ensure continued support for existing programs.
Support: FCHEA supports our members’ own advocacy and engagement through a full range of technical, educational, and outreach activities. Association working groups establish, coordinate, and improve codes and standards, and provide unparalleled opportunities for collaboration and innovation, as well as help shape the regulations that affect commercialization. FCHEA members receive materials and programming suggestions they can use with their own stakeholders.
