The UC Irvine Hydrogen Program, a component of the Advanced Power and Energy Program, is actively developing and demonstrating energy technologies that generate and utilize hydrogen.
The goals of the program are to:
Develop and evaluate novel methods for generating, distributing, storing, dispensing and utilizing hydrogen as an energy carrier
Facilitate the introduction of fuel cell powered automobiles and hydrogen fueling stations in southern California
Explore the possibility for future energy system concepts made possible by the convergence of stationary and transportation power technology in the form of hydrogen powered fuel cells
Educate industry, government and the general public on the costs and benefits of hydrogen technologies and systems
