Celebrate National Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Day

Joanna Schroeder

Saturday, October 8, 2016 is National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day. The event was created to raise awareness of clean energy technologies that are available now, including fuel cell powered vehicles. October 8 (10.08) was selected in reference to the atomic weight of hydrogen (1.008).

For example, Air Products will have its hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the new Toyota Mirai, on display from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown, PA. The same vehicle will be on display in FCHEA’s booth at Taste of D.C. in Washington, D.C. this weekend.
