Developing a National Strategy for High-Volume Manufacture of P.E.M. and Solid Oxide Fuel Cells WorkshopDownload Now
This report presents the results of a workshop sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that took place on December 8, 2003, in Dearborn, Michigan. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together a broad national audience to identify critical manufacturing issues associated with the high volume production of fuel cells and to explore the development of a national strategy for fuel cell manufacturability (NSFCM).
The workshop technology focus was on polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells and solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), as these two technologies are closest to high volume, commercial application. In scope, fuel cell applications included the U.S. transportation sector (especially the automotive industry) as well as stationary and portable power generation. There were approximately 50 attendees from a diverse cross-section of stakeholder organizations, including PEM and SOFC manufacturers and suppliers, relevant government agencies, organizations, and academic institutionsDownload Now
