Today’s Fuel Cell Market Creates Jobs While Providing Clean Energy

Sandia National Laboratories 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.

“Sandia National Laboratories is proud to join with other cutting-edge companies celebrating National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day,” said, Chris San Marchi, Fuel Cells & Hydrogen Program Manager of Sandia National Laboratories.  “Today’s hydrogen and fuel cell industry is making its mark on America’s highways, as well as in factories, warehouses, businesses, universities, and public institutions by providing sustainable, affordable, safe, and resilient power.”
