Connor Dolan

Today, Altergy joins the nation in celebrating National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day by marking the growth of the industry and raising awareness of the benefits fuel cells and hydrogen technologies provide in generating reliable and resilient power, improving the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing America’s energy security.

Recognized by the U.S. Senate for the second year with the passage of Senate Resolution 573, National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day is being observed on October 8 (10.08), a reference to the atomic weight of hydrogen – 1.008.

Clean, efficient, and quiet, fuel cells utilize hydrogen and oxygen to generate electricity in a chemical reaction without combustion.

“Altergy is proud to join with other cutting-edge companies celebrating National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day,” said Andrea Laughlin, Altergy’s Director of Marketing. “Today’s hydrogen and fuel cell industry is making its mark across America and the world – on highways, factories, businesses, universities, and public institutions by providing sustainable, affordable, safe, and resilient power.”

Altergy Freedom Power™ fuel cells deliver reliable, cost effective backup power for mission critical applications providing customers constant connectivity for modern, stronger networks. As the largest provider of fuel cells for backup power in the telecommunications industry, Altergy fuel cells have logged more than 32 million hours of runtime, provided uninterrupted power during hurricanes, earthquakes, and severe storms where legacy systems have failed, and have replaced batteries and generators in more than 8.3 million watts of applications.
