GLRPPR Sector Resource: State of the States: Fuel Cells in America 2016

Title:
State of the States: Fuel Cells in America 2016

Abstract:
The fuel cell footprint is growing in the U.S. on a variety of levels. The industry consists of companies large and small, located in states across the country, representing the entire spectrum from components to systems to integrators and end users. Installations and deployments are increasing every year, in number and in megawatts (MW). Cities are adopting fuel cells to power essential services when the grid goes down. Railroad and telecom companies use fuel cells to power communication towers and signaling infrastructure. Major corporations are not only installing hundreds of fuel cell systems to power retail sites, data centers, and other facilities, they are also deploying fuel cell-powered forklifts in warehouses and distribution centers across the country. Fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) are available for purchase or lease in California and fuel cell buses are in operation in several states. While these deployments have been encouraged by federal research and development (R&D) and demonstration programs, and supported by federal tax incentives for FCVs, hydrogen infrastructure, and fuel cell stationary power generation, it is the support and investment by state governments that have propelled the use of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies in certain parts of the country.
