Sacramento, Calif. -- The California Fuel Cell Partnership today announced that the National Fuel Cell Research Center at the University of California, Irvine has joined CaFCP as its newest member, making the NFCRC the 32nd addition to the public-private partnership.

The NFCRC was dedicated at UC Irvine in 1998 by the U.S. Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission. Its principal goal is to accelerate the development and deployment of fuel cell technology as a form of energy efficient and environmentally sensitive power generation. The NFCRC has Toyota Highlander fuel cell fleet vehicles and operates a 700 bar hydrogen fueling station, the first in California.  
“The National Fuel Cell Research Center welcomes this opportunity to join the California Fuel Cell Partnership and provide a bridge between stationary fuel cell technology and the hydrogen future,” said Professor Scott Samuelsen, Director of UC Irvine’s NFCRC.  “As a CaFCP member, NFCRC will provide its expertise in hydrogen fueling infrastructure and hydrogen generation to other CaFCP members.”

”We are pleased to welcome the National Fuel Cell Research Center as our newest member,” said Catherine Dunwoody, Executive Director of CaFCP.  “NFCRC’s knowledge of fuel cell and hydrogen technology will play a significant role in strengthening and expanding our capabilities as an organization.”
