On June 17th at the 2014 DOE EERE Fuel Cell Technology Office (FCTO) Annual Merit Review in Washington DC, Sandian’s Christopher San Marchi (manager of Sandia’s Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) and Brian Somerday (also in the Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) received a DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Program achievement award for their research into hydrogen and materials interactions.
The award recognizes their contributions and international leadership, which has enabled system designers to develop cost-effective and reliable hydrogen pressure systems for hydrogen energy applications and supports the deployment of clean and efficient fuel-cell vehicles and hydrogen fueling infrastructure.
