The National Fuel Cell Symposium
The Road is Clear

Presented by the National Fuel Cell Research Center (NFCRC), the annual “National Fuel Cell Symposium” rotates each year between Irvine and Sacramento, and between a focus on stationary fuel cell technology and mobile fuel cell technology. This year, the one day Symposium convenes the public, investment community, industry, government, and academia to discuss the current state of Mobile Fuel Cell development and deployment in the United States and abroad.
