Fuel Cell Databases

The states database allows you to highlight one or multiple states to narrow your search

The world database includes installations in over 40 countries, seachable by manufacturer, fuel type, and more

State Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Database – Catalogues initiatives, policy and partnerships in the fuel cell and hydrogen arena. We also include all stationary fuel cell installations, hydrogen fueling stations and vehicle demonstrations (cars, buses, forklifts) in the United States. Almost every state, including the District of Columbia has some sort of fuel cell or hydrogen-related legislation in place. In addition, there are hundreds of fuel cell installations in the U.S. that span the map from Maine to Hawaii. We hope this database sparks even more activity to help bring fuel cells to commercialization and the hydrogen economy to realization.

We’ve recently added some new features to this database including the ability to search active installations (some have been decommissioned over the years) and calculate the number of units and total power in each state. The numbers are now tallied at the bottom of the search page, and we’ve added the ability to print a report based on your search.

To generate an accurate picture of installations running today, select “active” in the advanced search options.

Worldwide Fuel Cell Installation Database – Catalogues stationary fuel cell installations worldwide – past, present, and some planned. There have been thousands of fuel cells installed around the world since the early 1980s. Some locations in the database have more than one fuel cell unit on site, so be sure to check each listing to learn more. This database does not include U.S. installations.

Additional Information

For information on federal programs and activities, please visit DOE’s Fuel Cell Technologies Program website. For more information on hydrogen and other alternative fuels, please visit the Alternative Fuels Data Center. Alternative fuels described here are those defined by the Energy Policy Act of 1992, including biodiesel, electricity, ethanol, hydrogen, natural gas, and propane. This site has more than 3,000 documents in its database, an interactive fuel station mapping system, current listings of available alternative fuel vehicles, and lots of alternative fuels information and related links.

For additional information on state, local, utility, and Federal incentives for energy efficiency and renewable energy, check out the North Carolina Solar Center’s Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE).
