There has been
much research and development work on hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles
(FCEVs), but the lack of a hydrogen fueling infrastructure has dramatically
slowed their introduction into the marketplace. However, FCEVs are now being
sold in California, and automotive technician training for FCEVs is needed. This
webinar will explain the operational characteristics of proton-exchange membrane
fuel cells, compare them to other energy storage systems, and outline the start
of new fuel-cell educational programs.This
informative webinar will be held on August 23 from 1:00 - 2:30 PM EDT.
