Automated Dynamics will be leading a $1.5 Million program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to help advance fuel-cell and hydrogen technologies. Specifically, the Offices of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and the Fuel Cell Technologies Office have funded Automated Dynamics to advance its patented electrofusion pipe coupling technology. Helping to develop a hydrogen delivery infrastructure created with composite materials aims to enable early adoption of fuel-cell applications such as fuel-cell electric vehicles.
A recent report released by the Energy Department shows the fuel cell industry is continuing to grow at an unprecedented rate, totaling more than $2.2 billion in sales in 2014. In order to further expand on this emerging market, the Department has announced the investment of more than $20 million in ten projects. These projects will accelerate American innovation in clean energy technologies by supporting research and development advancements that will reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil and cut harmful carbon emissions.
