Engineering Team to Receive
$1.9 Million from DOE
for Fuel Cell Research

The Connecticut Global Fuel Cell Center (CGFCC) was awarded nearly $2 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to research the effects of impurities on fuel cell performance and durability. Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman announced in October '06 that the agency would fund 25 R&D projects nationwide in support of President Bush's Advanced Energy Initiative. The winning proposals included the CGFCC submission prepared by a team of UConn engineering faculty and colleagues from FuelCell Energy and UTC/Hamilton Sundstrand. A total of $100 million was awarded by DOE for research projects aimed at overcoming cost and durability barriers associated with hydrogen fuel cells.
