The Hydrogen Storage Engineering Center of Excellence (HSECoE) is working to help reduce our Nation's dependence on foreign energy sources by changing the way we power our cars, homes, and businesses. The HSECoE was selected through a competitive, merit reviewed solicitation process by DOE.


The Center addresses the significant engineering challenges associated with developing lower-pressure, materials-based, hydrogen storage systems for hydrogen fuel cell and internal combustion engine light-duty vehicles.

This project is incorporated into the DOE's Fuel Cell Technology Program, which consists of applied research and development activities, conducted through Center of Excellence materials and engineering teams, and independent projects focusing on materials and concepts, testing, and system analysis.
