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
