The Renewable Hydrogen Fuel Cell Collaborative (RHFCC) is dedicated to aiding in research and development to remove barriers to adoption and make hydrogen-powered, zero-emission vehicles a viable option in the Midwest region.
The RHFCC operates out of The Energy Policy Center at Cleveland State University and is connected with research institutions and organizations across the country. The following are some of the research projects that we are working on to improve the prospects for fuel cells.
- Economics of Carbon Capture and Storage for Small Scale Hydrogen Generation for Transit Refueling Stations.
- Analysis of Supply Chain Opportunities for Fuel Cell Buses Using Industrial Classifications
- Estimating Social Costs for Various Fuel Strategies for Transit Buses
- An Analysis of the Association between Changes in Ambient Temperature, Fuel Economy, and Vehicle Range for Battery Electric and Fuel Cell Electric Buses.
- How the Midwest can lead the Hydrogen Economy: Matching Generation Assets to Distribution Markets in Planning Hydrogen Refueling Infrastructure for Trucking and Transit
