Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Durability and Fuel Cell Performance

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


The objectives of this project are to validate hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in real-world settings and to identify the current status and evolution of the technology. The analysis objectively assesses progress toward targets and market needs defined by the U.S. Department of Energy and stakeholders, provides feedback to hydrogen research and development, and publishes results for key stakeholder use and investment decisions. Fiscal year 2018 objectives focus on analysis and reporting of FCEV driving range, fuel economy, drive and fill behaviors, durability, fill performance, and fuel cell performance. This report specifically addresses the topics of fuel cell stack durability and fuel cell performance.
